Soulsavers‘ forthcoming third LP Broken is dominated by the voice of Mark Lanegan ahead of other collaborators Jason Pierce, Mike Patton, and Richard Hawley. The original of ‘Death Bells’ features the standard and brutally effective Lanegan scowl surrounded in howls in scores of feedback and guitar noise so it’s hard to imagine exactly what Mogwai would do on the remix.
It turns out the Scots have replaced the original feedback with their own and added some bleepy echo. The track now shudders into a crystallised treble-heavy wall of noise. Nice work.[audio:http://www.state.ie/mp3/Death_Bells_Mogwai_remix.mp3]
