Julien Baker has released Little Oblivions Remixes – via Matador Records / Remote Control Records – which sees tracks from her critically acclaimed album Little Oblivions reworked by notable contemporaries personally selected by Baker. The EP features contributions from Australian folktronica songwriter Gordi, singer-songwriter Half Waif,celebrated electronic composer Helios, Oakland artist and producer Thao, and UK experimental and industrial metal artist Jesu (Matthew Broadrick).
Of Gordi’s take on Baker’s ‘Ringside’, the Australian artist notes, “I first met Julien in Barcelona in 2017. I’d been a big fan for ages so it was a real pleasure to play a show with her. We spent a bunch of time together at Eaux Claires festival in 2018 making music – we even played an hour long improvised set together to a crowd of a thousand people from this treehouse that was like a huge musical instrument with lots of tiny loop pedal stations… it was as weird as it sounds. But because of the way we think about chords and melodies and songwriting, we could really connect on the fly and make something beautiful. I loved having the opportunity to dig through the stems on this new Julien track and reimagine it.”
