Download: Cock & Swan (Kid Smpl & Korma Remixes)

Seattle-based Hush Hush Records recently released the third full length from duo Cock & SwanSecret Angles”  and they’re currently prepping a collection of remixes from the album, a couple of which we’re excited to premiere here on Truants. Cock & Swan is the product of a 10 year relationship between musicians Johnny Goss and Ola Hungerford, with a Tascam 4-track in a “white brick bunker by the Slough.” “Secret Angles” marks a significant step forward for the duo’s dark, intricate focus on vocal-laced pop and if you ask us, it fits in nicely alongside the beach-faded pop of Tycho. The first remix we’re debuting comes from Truancy Volume 61 contributor Kid Smpl, who warps Cock & Swan vocalist Hungerford into a church choir drowned in reverb and pairs it with trademark subtle percussion on his “Following” remix. For the second, relative newcomer (but someone we’ve definitely had our eyes/ears on for a while) Korma uses his knack for uptempo beats to meld acoustic analog cut “Melt Down” into something you could dance to, much like what Midland did to that Boards of Canada track a while back. It’s definitely a slow builder though, so don’t expect something right from the get go. Check out a stream of the tracks below. Though Cock & Swan’s album is available for a name-your-price download here, Hush Hush is starting a month-long Kickstarter campaign to have it pressed to vinyl. If you feel so inclined, head over here and donate. We suggest you do.
