Ennui – “Coconino (Spirit Animal’s If This Doesn’t End Up on GvB I Dont Know What Will Mix)”

Hear the original:

Ennui – “Coconino”

[2010]

I can’t help but feel responsible for this one. Ennui and Spirit Animal are 2 bands I’ve been really digging in 2011. In fact, I booked the two bands to play the upcoming MeccaLecca show at Pianos on February 21st. In anticipation of the upcoming show and in a remixing frenzy, Spirit Animal said they’d like to remix one of the other bands. Naturally I suggested remixing Ennui’s “Coconino,” which I felt would bring interesting results. Over the last few weeks, the mastermind of Spirit Animal has been tinkering away with the song, even bringing in a trumpet player. The resulting remix takes a really wonderful song and gives it some new flourishes. The trumpet turns out to be the most memorable aspect.

If you didn’t catch Spirit Animal’s remix of Jenny O that I posted last week, definitely makes sure to check it out.

Be sure to catch both Ennui and Spirit Animal at Pianos on February 21st with two more great local bands, Neighbors and Courtier (members of ArpLine).
