Part 2 in the limited 10" vinyl series from Amsterdam-based The Hooter Listens comes from The Leaf Library, with a thought provoking song about what we do with our time while we are 'here', backed with an incredibly lush remix from Isan, all wrapped up in a fine screen printed sleeve.
Written from the bassline up, ‘Losing Places’ started out as a raw demo with simple guitars, keyboard and the heartbeat of a borrowed Dr Rhythm drum machine. The band call it "An ambivalent hymn to the romance and dislocation of Marc Auge's 'non-places', networks of shiney spaces where movement is the only option and the odd thought that stopping there forever might make you completely disappear."
A track in two parts, the first section skips along under Kate Gibson’s gentle vocals before serpentine guitars weave their way into the mix. As the bass and keyboards take over in the second part the track disappears off down the autobahn, buzzing and droning, fading just as the guitars start to get serious and re-assert themselves again.
Remixers Isan were the first choice of both band and label, each being long time fans of their previous remixes (Seefeel, múm, Depeche Mode, Static, Solvent, Blamstrain, The Notwist) and albums on Morr Music and Static Caravan.
