Alex DeGroot, an engineer and member of Zola Jesus, has remixed "The Lair" off Austin duo Boy Friend’s debut LP. Before, under a shroud of reverb, the chorus felt one impatient glance away from calling it quits on life: All I ask is are you ready to go? What are you waiting for? Led by DeGroot's driving bass, now, the song's about the sun coming out. Maybe there really are new places worth getting out and seeing. The remix features on the bonus CD of Egyptian Wrinkle, out now on Hell, Yes!.
