Finland/Brooklyn's Albert Swarm
has opened his Held EP
, out last year on Ceremony
, to the remix treatment, enlisting Sun Glitters
and Ceremony's newest-signee, the Swedish producer Bam Spacey
. Swarm's original, tender productions, where percussion often sounds like it's coming from inside a log and the melody down through raindrops, take on new forms: Sun Glitters' version of Swarm's best track, "Foundling Wheels
," is typically otherworldly; Papercutz shows the widest range, underscoring the beautiful moments of "Recurring Dream" with hints of horror; Bam Spacey handles the club; Courtship sounds heroic. It's sized just right and everything works.
