“REWORKED BY SERIES” (Issue 02): A NEW ELEFANT COLLECTION

Elefant Records, in its constant search for new ideas and projects, is beginning a new collection of limited-edition Singles called “Reworked By Series”. The main idea is that groups on the Elefant label appropriate, play with, and remix each others’ songs. It’s an explosive mix that can create (and has, in fact, already created) really exciting cocktails. We’ve already got our hands on the first two releases from this collection, Guille Milkyway and LA CASA AZUL’s remake of ATTIC LIGHTS, and THE PRIMITIVES songs that MODULAR “perpetrated”. The Argentinian group MODULAR has once again created a cosmic, spacey world based on Paul Court’s guitars and Tracy Tracy’s vocals, making “Purifying Tone” and “Lose The Reason” theirs. And Guille does his thing, making a few new Eurodisco hits from “Future Bound” and “War Years”, two songs from the Scottish band fronted by Kevin Sherry.

Could you say the re-mixers have made their own songs? Almost, but also not at all. Those riffs, the vocals, the arrangements, and the melodies that belong to the original versions are special raw material, practically unprecedented, for the “re-constructors”, creating an alloy that is unprecedented, surprising, different, and most important of all, highly enjoyable.

The Singles from this new adventure will be released in 500-copy limited-editions on clear, 7” vinyl. Welcome to the new Elefant Records collection and get ready to enjoy new and exciting interpretations of our favorite songs.


“REWORKED BY SERIES” 02: THE PRIMITIVES REWORKED BY MODULAR

The “marriages of convenience” that Elefant Records’ new singles collection is fostering, are bringing about surprising results. Maybe THE PRIMITIVES’ fans try to find traces of the band formed by Paul Court,Tracy Tracy, and Tig Williams, among the analogue keyboards and white noise. And there is no doubt that they’re there. That noticeable riff of the opening bars of “Purifying Tone”, the melodies, Tracy Tracy’s voice, and the perfect choruses, like on “Lose The Reason”. But integrating all of these elements within the extraterrestrial musical language of the Argentinian band MODULAR perfects them in a way that makes it seem like the British band had intentionally recorded the tracks so that Marianna Badaracco and Pablo Dahy could inflict their spacey mischief.

It is this unthinkable combination that makes this release so unusual and special. These songs, the arrangements, the characteristics that have made THE PRIMITIVES the timeless band they are today, are what have helped take MODULAR’s interpretation to the next level. Yes, we have the analogue toying of STEREOLAB, the martial rhythms of kraut-rock, the outer-space noise and magic of Juan García Esquivel, but those clearly recognizable melodies, the solid, hummable, pristine choruses of the British group, give these “reconstructions” a malleability that make them so addictive, like a bright, open space you can step into and take deep, deep breaths. “Purifying Tone” is a trip to the future and the past, a Venusian suit for an other-worldly hit, and “Lose The Reason” increases its levels of dance-ability and excitement to unimaginable levels.

On the digital version of the Single and on the download included with the 500-print limited-edition, clear, 7” we have instrumental versions of the same “revisions”. Just like on the Maxis from the 80s. Playful and playable. As if MODULAR themselves said: “We’ve already played. Now we can let you play with my new toy for a while”. But look out, this “toy” is addictive.

Track Name: Purifying Tone (Reworked By Modular)
I've found a sound that will block you out
That will lock you out of my mind

Just turn the dial
Find the frequency
Set the tone
And I'll be just fine

I won't think of you at all

I've found a sound that will crush you
That will flush you out of my mind

I just turn the dial
Find the frequency
Set the tone
Then everything's fine

And I won't think of you at all
I won't think of you at all
Track Name: Lose The Reason (Reworked By Modular)
What will we do come tomorrow?
It will happen anyway
Still some time that we could borrow
Not enough to last a day
So this fire is growing dimmer
So this flame is growing small
Sift the ashes find a glimmer
Nothing glowing here at all

How did we lose the reason
Where has it gone?
What happened to the season in the sun?
How did we lose the reason
Where has it gone?
What happened to the season?
In the sun
In the sun
In the sun

What will we do come tomorrow?
It will happen anyway
No more hopes or dreams to follow
Nothing left just walk away
So this fire is growing dimmer
So this flame is growing small
Sift the ashes find a glimmer
Nothing glowing here at all

How did we lose the reason
Where has it gone?
What happened to the season in the sun?
How did we lose the reason
Where has it gone?
What happened to the season
In the sun
In the sun
In the sun
