The cult favourites, much loved by the late John Peel amongst others, have been away for quite a while now, but have emerged with their third album, the forthcoming Night Fold Around Me, This remix is available on limited edition vinyl and on download, and is remixed by Danton Supple, who has previously worked with Coldplay and Morrissey.
Given Supple's previous collaborations, Princess isn't what you'd expect. With its squelchy bass and Shaun Ryder-esque vocals, this conjures up images of Manchester in the early '90s. "Let the children all burn while the population loots" - which sounds very odd when compared to the blissed out feel of the track. It's catchy, addictive and feels slightly sleazy - which is a very good thing.
Back up track Vespers is remixed by Bullet Proof Sounds and is more dancefloor orientated than its companion song. Going by these two tracks, Night Fold Around Me should be one of 2005's more interesting listens.
