cars & trains - "intimidated by silence (blue sky black death remix)" (download)
Portland, Oregon's Cars & Trains (Tom Filepp) has been a very busy man as of late. He spent a good chunk of last month touring with Ceschi & Bleubird to start getting the word out about his upcoming record The Roots, The Leaves (for Ceschi's Fake Four label) and its sister album of remixes, appropriately titled The Roots, The Remix. The Roots, The Remix includes remixes from Boy In Static, Melodium, Dollboy, Meanest Man Contest, Blue Sky Black Death, Big Pauper/PZ, Otem Relik, Unconventional Science, USF, Lullatone, Polyphonic, Bomarr (that's me), and Ernest Gonzales. Fake Four is handling the physical & electronic formats for the album, and Circle Into Square will be releasing the digital-only remix album. In addition to all this stuff (see, I said he's a busy guy), he has a limited edition 7" coming out on Token Recluse featuring Unconventional Science and Pauper/PZ's remixes. You really should grab all of these things. The record and remix album will be available on 1/26/10.
