Following the release of their acclaimed debut 'Foe', Man Without Country kick off 2013 with a compilation of their remix work. The duo have lent their signature sonic atmospherics and enticing aural haze to such high-profile artists as Moby, Miike Snow, Chad Valley and M83.
The remix package features exclusive Man Without Country remixes for Miike Snow, Active Child and School of Seven Bells along with a host of alternate mixes that have already won plaudits across the blogosphere.
The Miike Snow remix in particular is a gem of dark chord progression, and lends a melancholy to the original track's pop aesthetic. Perhaps the best example of MWC's transformative powers is their work on Active Child's 'Diamond Heart' - layers of static wrap around that distinct melody and cradle the melodic rises effortlessly - and Lanterns On The Lake's 'If I've Been Unkind' is reshaped into a slow, moody epic.
Man Without Country also play their first UK live show of the new year at Madame Jojos on Feb 12th ahead of a US tour which takes in SxSW. UK dates are also confirmed.
