LE BOEUF BROTHERS, REMIXED


The La Boeuf Brother’s ambition aims high for a project that tapped their fan base with Remixed, a collection that invited musicians, friends and DJs to have at their existing tracks, derived mostly from their 2011 release, In Praise Of Shadows, to create new sonically enhanced versions of their songs. The result is twitchy, loosely strung together collection that merges trip-hop, ambient rhythms and jazz-enabled rap (David Binney’s remix of “Falling Apart.”) It’s generally entertaining, but LA bassist Tim Lefebvre nails the concept’s intent on his tightly wound remix of “Calgary Clouds.” The Le Boeuf Brothers see their compositions as continuously evolving, tweaking the original tracks just so, adding or changing up original vocals and inserting horns and beats where necessary. Whether you’re feeling turbo-charged or chilled, Remixed and Pascal’s Triangle exploit opportunities that other jazz musicians leave alone. (10 tracks; 37 minutes)
