Following last years acclaimed Curse of Soft Rocks album, we're invited to revisit said masterpiece from an alternative entry — a robust compilation of remixes. Each track is wildly re-contextualized leaving us with a beautifully obtuse yet complimentary rendering. Personnel employed vary in style and technique drastically, but such is the ethos of Soft Rocks, and furthermore the ESP Institute. At the end of the day, we implore you to shut up and listen.
On this 12" (the second of 3 surrounding The Revenge of Soft Rocks remix album) ESP mainstays COS/MES deliver a deep and sensual yet sinister take on Little Lights, and side B reveals an upbeat dubbed out version of Wicker Man by Zurich’s own LEXX (Running Back, Permanent Vacation, Leng)... good lord this is quite a piece of wax!
