The Gainesville-via-Brooklyn indie pop group Conveyor released their self-titled debut LP through Paper Garden Records earlier this summer, and you know as well as I do what that means for now-times: remixpalooza, the pre- and post-release windows when labels dish out blogable promotional, scrumtrulescent nibblets that serve to bring attention to said release without giving away too many slices of the actual pie. Hype Machine is literally inundated with these twisted chunklets to the point they had to have a no-remix filter for their main page. Occasionally these remixes are actually pretty awesome, and this one, from Spanish newcomer Cineplexx, is totally worth your while:
It takes a little while to stop meandering but at around minute two it bursts into full stargazing effect, with Conveyor’s vocal chirps and verses vocoded and chiptuned to cochlea-tickling effect. It’s great that it’s very un-Conveyor, giving a new context to these FL boys’ usually straightforward (but awesomely addictive) art pop.
