Title: Brand New Beck Remix of ‘Lights of Home’
Post by: The Slow Loris on April 15, 2018, 06:03:03 PM
I like it better than the original! But I think the strings version is still the best, hard to say though...

Ooh, I about broke my (metaphorical) leg getting to this. Has Beck done anything else with their stuff? On first listen, there were parts I liked better, but other things I preferred about the original. Will be giving this more listens, though.

I like Beck's remix work with French band AIR.

It’s good, nice and bassy.

It would sound really good in something like a bar-lounge or a beach club in the coming months.  It's very chilled and the 'free yourself' coda would be a memorable pick up.  Beck has done a really good job with the remix.

Another way of reaching out to different audiences. 

Still prefer the St Peter's String version - but not by that much though - because it is a more 'complete' song and works well live.

Would love Beck to remix the entire record and produce the next one.

I'd really love for him to have a go at LIAWHL. The song has improved from "ugh" to "has potential" for me over time but I feel like Beck could totally fix it.

He did great production work on a couple of Thurston Moore's LP's.

Where are you guys listening to this?

And LIAWHL is perfect as is. A stunning and compelling intro to the album with the oerfect bookend in 13.

ah ok i see the link on my computer now it wasn't showing up on my phone for some odd reason.

It's a fantastic remix. Wow. One of the best remixes they've done in recent memory.
