LISTEN // Destroyer Shares ‘”Forces From Above” Remix


Following outstanding critical acclaim for Destroyer’s latest album Poison Season, we are happy to share the remix for “Forces From Above” by DJ (a member of Destroyer and The New Pornographers).

Read DJ’s statement on the remix

DJ has heard of dubstep. DJ is sickened by the organic, human nature of the album version of “Forces From Above” and of the Poison Season feel in general, when the words are so often about mechanised abuse at a societal level. It makes no sense. However, DJ understands malaise and being lost in the simple maze (a couple of squiggly lines) of one’s dreary thoughts. DJ knows for a fact that “Forces From Above” is about CAMPS, like internment camps and concentration camps.

DJ heard this from Bejar himself, muttered once or twice, in his bunk. DJ mixes are not interested in release; they are exercises in tension that go nowhere, much like a life. DJ dabbles in queer theory. DJ mixes on an iPhone; too bad
DJ says, “Destroyer’s sadness is no match for mine. Mine cannot be contained. It never has been able to be.” Extemporaneous night is something DJ is working on. DJ mourns the undanceability of his mixes, but it won’t always be this way.

DJ does not believe techno music to be a suitable medium for songwriters.
DJ created this mix as a response to the challenge of making an unmasterable WAV file.

Destroyer’s European tour kicks off late this month, including a now sold out date at Islington Assembly Hall on 30th October.

WATCH + LISTEN // Mark McGuire Shares “In Search of the Miraculous” Single With Shinji Remix (DMBQ, Boredoms), NYC Headline Show At Baby’s All Right Jan 31

Mark’s Dead Oceans debut Along The Way will be delivered to your aural cavities February 4th, 2014. Today, he releases a second single from the album entitled “In Search of the Miraculous” [via Rolling Stone premiere yesterday] and a remix from producer Shinji (DMBQ, Boredoms). On the meaning behind the second single, Mark explains:

“It’s about a person falling in love with knowledge and following that love wherever it takes him in search of truth and understanding of himself and the world…The main mantra of the song is, ‘All that we know is only learned,’ implying that all knowledge created and discovered by man is continuously open to re-evaluation and can always grow and change, which basically leaves reality open to all possibilities”

Listen and watch a psychedelic visual made by Mark to the single above and then check out Shinji‘s remix here on Soundcloud with the accompanying visual on our YouTube page here.

Pre-order Along The Way now through SC Distribution, iTunes, Amazon and your local record store.
