Roman Ruins // PASTOR/AL 7”

For anyone who reads my site on the regular, it isn’t a surprise that I love remixes. That’s why I auto-clicked when I got an e-mail containing Roman Ruins remix to Beach House’s stellar Teen Dream track “Lover of Mine”. Now I haven’t heard too many Beach House remixes (this must be a testament on how hard it is to tackle their music), however I think it’s safe to say that Roman Ruins puts in a damn good attempt at making his own spin on this modern classic. Maybe it’s due to the fact that he’s their tour drummer that he’s able to put in such a great effort…

Meant to be a promotion for his newly released PASTOR/AL 7”, available on Gold Robot Records, I have to say that the remix pales in comparison to the two original tracks on the 7”. I was blown away when I first tuned in to the B-side “The Comedown” for the first time. Complete with woozy vocals and skylit synths, the track is a definitely headphone listen that is sure to capture your attention until the last airy syllables.

Check out the two tracks below and head on over and cop yourself a sweet orange 7” at Gold Robot’s shop for a measly $5+S/H (I already did!).
