"Rather than being a standard, patchwork offering that can and often does plague the concept of the remix album, the music fits together nicely – although every track is very different – and, crucially, the quality never dips." - FLUID RADIO
"It’s an eclectic and endlessly inventive mix of sounds and approaches. There isn’t a weak moment. It’s either overwhelmingly beautiful or crafting a whole new genre that never existed before – though its often both at the same time." - CYCLIC DEFROST
No time like the present to unleash this solid collection of remixes and covers. For numerous reasons, these songs almost didn't see the light of day. Yet having revisited them many times since the original album was released, we came to and realized others should have a chance to hear them.
For those who missed the Graveyard Tapes album 'White Rooms' in late 2014, let these bold new interpretations provide some serious incentive to check out one of the strongest releases in the Lost Tribe Sound catalog. 'White Rooms', is the sophomore album from Edinburgh based duo Euan McMeeken (glacis, The Kays Lavelle) and Matthew Collings (Splintered Instruments, Sketches For Albinos).
'I'm On Fire (White Rooms Remixes)' pools the considerable talents of Graveyard Tapes close musical allies. Well known underground acts Benoit Pioulard, William Ryan Fritch, Fieldhead and Dag Rosenqvist (Jasper TX) hold the source material in high regards while making bold choices with its redesign. Newly signed LTS artists Western Skies Motel and Mute Forest deliver impressive drone steeped indie reworks. 'I'm On Fire...' avoids the usual pitfalls of many remix albums, maintaining an alive and well-paced story throughout while providing a worthy final chapter to the original.
