Dublin band Halfset consists of busy musicians and producers. While we await the release of their own forthcoming second album sometime this year, the band members have been keeping occupied with other projects. Stephen Shannon while occasionally a maker of lush electronica has been producing some of Ireland’s bright new artists like Carly Sings, Crayonsmith and David Turpin.
Jeff Martin meanwhile has decided to take the downtime to release a remix project of sorts. Entitled Spoons – A Collection of Remixes, Collaborations & Interpretations, it features reworkings of Jeff’s second album tracks by the likes of Minotaur Shock, Isan (Morr Music), John McEntire (Tortoise), The High Llamas, David Pajo, Mice Parade, Decal, Jeniferever, Chequerboard, Dublin Guitar Quartet and John Parish.
Sample the Decal remix below which is rather sublime.
The album is released this Friday – 23/05/08.
