PREMIERE: Ringo Deathstarr - Shadow (Doppelganger Mix)
It'd be rude of me to begin this post without first making the proper introductions. Ringo Deathstarr, as you may already be aware, are the band from Austin who sound like they should be from Manchester circa the early-90s (ie SHOEGAZE). Bar any slight sensations of geographical displacement, that shouldn't be too hard for you to bend your brains around. What might prove a little harder to take in is the make-up of the people who've turned their "Shadow" into a pulsing and vaguely malevolent slice of electro. This 'Doppelganger Mix' comes courtesy of one guy called Bjorn Thorsrud, and two other guys called Jeff Schroeder and Mike Byrne. The former produces The Smashing Pumpkins, and the latter two play in The Smashing Pumpkins. Got that? So listen! Deathstarr's new EP has the same name as this, and is out November 7.
