Shameless self-promotion here, but my band, Bloody Panda, will be releasing a remix album, and leading up to the release date on November 15th, tracks will be posted one at a time on Brooklyn Vegan and Pitchfork along with interviews with the people who remixed them such as Drew Daniel of Matmos, Jarboe of Swans […]
