Bill Wells

Remixes For Seksound

Release date: December 07, 2018
Label: Seksound
Format: LP Album
Vinyl LP pressing. The latest chapter in Bill Wells' ceaselessly creative musical story is as unpredictable as it is typical of the self-taught musician, songwriter and arranger. It's deceptive, too. On the surface, Remixes For Seksound is exactly what it's title promises - eight tracks by a handful of groups, originally released on Estonian label Seksound and given the Bill Wells treatment. From the first note, however, it's apparent these are no mere remixes. These are reworkings, reconstructions from the ground up, in some instances containing little more than traces of the original songs, transforming shoegaze and dream-pop into jazz-accented lullabies. In order to start work with as clean a slate as possible, Wells often gave the parent material a cursory airing in his home studio in Glasgow before pulling it apart and either composing entirely new arrangements or resculpting the supplied parts in his own unique fashion. The results are as beguiling, refreshing and gentle as followers of Bill Wells would expect.
