We Could Be Arsonists (Damian Taylor Remix)

  • Artists Damian Taylor, Loquat
  • Release Date 2013-01-29
  • Labels Tommy Boy
  • Catalog TB2699
  • Description Through dangerously evocative lyrics and ultra-melodic songs, San Francisco's Loquat has captivated fans from as far as Tel Aviv, Hong Kong, and Kraków, and has infiltrated electromagnetic TV waves through such shows as MTV's "Teen Mom", P. Diddy's "Making The Band," and CW's "One Tree Hill." Meanwhile, Loquat has played Treasure Island Music Festival, SXSW, and CMJ and has shared the stage with the likes of Miike Snow, Goldfrapp, TV on the Radio, Nortec Collective, The Cardigans, and Liz Phair. On Loquat's third full-length album, We Could Be Arsonists, the band tells intricate tales of train terrorism, space expeditions, and criminal infamy-mixing in modern twists of new wave, psychedelic rock, indie-electronic, and jangle-y pop. This track is remixed by Damian Taylor, with an even darker twist on the songs already sinister theme of infamy. It is the first of six Loquat remixes coming out on Tommy Boy in 2013. Establishing his career in London, Damian Taylor has produced, engineered, programmed, and composed for Björk, The Killers, Arcade Fire, UNKLE, Kasabian, Frou Frou, and more. He met Loquat soon after setting up his Golden Ratio studio in Montreal and remixed We Could Be Arsonists, the title track from the San Francisco bands third album (originally released last year on Nacional Records [Nortec Collective,Manu Chao]). Taylor's version will also be represented in a video by producer/director Micah Gendron, featuring actor John Ennis from Mr. Show, Walk Hard, and Zodiac. Meanwhile, stay tuned for other Loquat remixes by Morgan Page, Junior Sanchez, Bostich of Nortec Collective, Dan Sena, and Natema.
