Mogwai, Sonic Youth‘s Lee Ranaldo, Mark Eitzel and novelist/musician Luke Sutherland of Bows have all contributed remixes of cult Aussie band The Paradise Motel for a new album of reworkings released on September 27.
Since relocation to London The Paradise Motel have supported Sparklehorse, Mercury Rev and Black Box Recorder as well as building up a growing following.
‘The Reworkings Record’ – seven tracks taken from their recent album ‘Flight Paths’ – ranges from Ranaldo‘s ‘Lee’s Trees’ (apparently he stuck a Jew’s harp over the chorus) to Mogwai‘s version of their cover of The Cars‘ ‘Drive’ which feeds all the vocals through a Vocoder.
