If you're familiar with Silk Flowers then you know they can get kinda baroque, which is cool because moping and dancing don't necessarily have to be mutually exclusive. Their track "Thin Air," however, is not as heavy as we'd normally expect from them. In fact, it's pretty upbeat. Maybe that's why they enlisted Grouper to make a remix of the track that sounds absolutely nothing like the original. If you couldn't tell by our headline or by actually listening to it, it sounds like staring death in the face and is absolutely devastating. Silk Flowers are going on tour, and we can't imagine them performing the Grouper remix (how would that even work?) which is a good thing, it's purely for headphones and also crying. Catch the band on tour, sometimes with Salem, starting this Saturday, March 5th, in Seattle.
