Boomkat Product Review:
This EP supplies two new tracks from Worst Friends backed with a selection of remixes from Shigeto, Tom Croose, Blisk and Bostro Pesopeo. Apparently Prada have picked up on the original version of 'Pillows Of Wind', using it for a recent video, and perhaps appropriately the track is full of Italo elegance, taking on a gentle pace as it layers arping synth lines and minor key guitar strums. Bostro Pesopeo injects some extra urgency and focus to the track with his light rebuffing, while Blisk goes off-topic with an almost Squarepusher-like remix, bringing elements of jazzy, rapidfire electronica to the table. 'AG' in its original form is a delightful beatless piece that's brimming with summery melody, and although Shigeto is quick to inject some modern beat compressions the floating, ambient core remains buried in there somewhere, and it all sounds rather excellent. Finally, Tom Croose goes for a shoegazing schaffel feel rounding off a varied and entertaining EP.
