Kiran Leonard, ‘Geraldo’s Farm’ (Field Music Remix) – Track Exclusive

If there’s a criticism to be levelled against Kiran Leonard, it’s that the Oldham teenager has too many ideas for his own good. Across his last album, 2013’s sprawling ‘Bowler Hat Soup’, he invoked the likes of Jeff Buckley, Of Montreal and the Elephant 6 Collective, The Fiery Furnaces, Rufus Wainwright, Deerhoof, the Beach Boys and Frank Zappa’s Mothers Of Invention, sometimes within the space of a single song. On this remix of ‘Geraldo’s Farm’, however, Field Music’s Peter Brewis applies his band’s trademark asceticism, clipping what was a hairy Super Furries-do-krautrock ramble into a suave, clipped funk banger. (Though Leonard’s trademark hairbrainedness remains in the form of an enjoyably odd penny whistle solo.)
