Before their new album The L Shaped Man, Ceremony weren’t really the kind of band that you could remix. There just wasn’t enough breathing room in any of their tracks for someone to wedge themselves in there and break it down. But with a lighter sound comes some more freedom, which allowed David West from Total Control/Rat Columns/Rank Xerox to come in under the name Liberation and deconstruct single “Your Life In France” into a sputtering, ominous drone. Listen below.
Ceremony’s The L Shaped Man is out now via Matador.
