After the release of her sublime, critically acclaimed album Penelope Trappes returns with ‘Redeux’; an album of top-drawer reworks of tracks taken from ‘Penelope Two’, which showcase not only the intrinsic brilliance of Penelope’s composition and performances, but also her far-reaching and all-encompassing musical influences and significance.
Scottish post-rock legends Mogwai stretch out ‘Burn On’ into a scorching, warbling drone that flips the original sombre subtlety for grandeur and in-your-face majesty. Factory Floor member Nik Colk Void offers up a wayward, statically charged reworking of ‘Nite Hive’ which reimagines the track’s solemn beauty as a heads down roller and Throbbing Gristle’s Cosey Fanni Tutti’s dystopian, avant-garde and jazz tinged electronics are deployed alongside her signature Cornet to flip the album single ‘Carry Me’. Shelter Press label founder, producer and visual artist Félicia Atkinson also appears plus Houndstooth mainstay Throwing Snow. Icelandic multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Jófríður Ákadóttir aka JFDR injects nimble rhythms and guitar into piano ballad ‘Maeve’. Poppy Akroyd, Savages producer Jonny Hostile, Oneohtrix Point Never and Tim Hecker collaborator and Sigur Ros’ musical director Paul Corley, delivers a forlorn take on ‘Nite Hive’, whilst Swedish duo Aasthma (Peder Mannerfelt + Pär Grindvik) take album single ‘Connector’ to an entirely different realm.
