CITAY Release New Remixes LP, New Video, Mp3s

CITAY have not strayed far from home in 2009, playing only about a dozen shows in their home state of California. Just because they have been off the road does not mean the band has not been hard at work. They have been writing and recording new material, as well as compiling tracks for their new release, titled simply, Remixes. Available November 3rd (November 2nd in the UK), this release contains reworkings from their 2007 album Little Kingdom.

From the ambient textures of White Rainbows’ “Eye on Dollar” remix to Cornershop’s Anthony Saffery adding sitar and percussion to “First Fantasy,” these are anything but typical remix rave-ups. These Are Powers’ Brenmar (aka Bill Salas) gives “Moonburn” a playful, skittering treatment, while Black Mountains’ Steve McBean adds his effected vocals to “Former Child” – the end result sounding more like Metallica than like Aphex Twin. While some remixes use the Citay originals as a foundation for embellishments, others simply take the audio as found sounds and source material. Either way, the reinterpretations of Citay’s music on Remixes is surprising and eye-opening. Released on vinyl LP and via digital download, Remixes is the Citay album we never thought we would hear. We are pleased to share an mp3 of White Rainbow’s remix of “Eye on the Dollar,” which is a subtle and lush reworking of the original, HERE.

Citay also recently did a Luxury Wafers session, where they performed an epic rendition of “Nice Cuffs.” The video is a nice holdover of the band live and in action, until they tour extensively in 2010 in support of a new LP. Check out the entire Luxury Wafers session HERE.
