Golden Bloom

World Premiere: “Doomsday Devices (Ruby Isle Remix)” MP3

Jun 25, 2009

Listen to this track

Magnet Magazine kicked off what they aptly christened "Summer of Golden Bloom" with The Lemonheads-like outlier, "E.H.M." from debut album, Fan the Flames. That's the ghostly album artwork down below. If you're not familiar, nine music magazines and websites (including yours truly) are premiering Golden Bloom tracks every week until the album drops on August 18th. Today, we've got an exclusive download remix of runaway single "Doomsday Devices." The original track had sort of a Wilco-lite aesthetic going on (like much of the summery debut). This retooling, by the Athens, Georgia electro-rock threesome Ruby Isle is an auto-Tuned freak show. The remix could easily slot in well with the rest of Kindercore's stable of dance-pop bands. Side note: Ruby Isle bandmate Dan Geller is the co-founder of Kindercore. The Ruby crew mutate the apocalyptic Casiotone sing-a-long into a schizophrenic banger. I guess if you're facing the end of the world the best distraction is sweating it out on the dance floor. Golden Bloom is spearheaded by multi-instrumentalist Shawn Fogel (pictured) and features drummer Michael Azerrad, a music journalist who wrote Our Band Could Be Your Life. Other band mainstays include Deleon frontman Dan Saks, Pink Floyd tribute band The Machine member Ryan Ball, Brooklyn guitarist Jeff Patlingrao, and Guster sideman Josh Cohen. The power-pop group is touring the Eastern seaboard this summer. Fan the Flames was recorded with Ryan Ball at The Gearbox and produced by Peter Katis (The National, Interpol, Mates of State). Fogel also retinkered with Roger Greenawalt (Ben Kweller) and Dylan Magierek (Mark Kozelek)

Here's the official schedule of "The Summer of Golden Bloom."
