I’ve spent most of my Good Friday so far getting pretty excited about the new Forest Swords’ EP Dagger Paths; more enthusiastic ramblings to follow. In the meantime he has done a great wee lo-fi mixtape for Gorilla vs Bear, featuring the likes of Jeru The Damaja, Atlas Sound, King Tubby, Ducktails and various tracks off the new album:

The Wirral based producer also includes on the mix a reworking of a track by another British purveyor of murky post-dubstep, Burial. The Moth collaboration with Fourtet was excellent in the first place, Forest Swords has beefed up the original with a rolling psychedelic drum workout:

And to finally stir you from your Easter holiday hypnopompic state, Caribou has made the remix of Odessa by Nite Jewel available for download. Again, the original wasn’t half bad but this submerges it in Nite Jewel’s ethereal tape haze, with Ramona Gonzalez’s accompanying vocals lifting Dan Snaith’s original falsetto:
