good fucking god someone yank that mic from Jenny Hval.
don't get it twisted, the Jason remix for instance is fucking enjoyable. it's a remix, and Perfume Genius still outpaces pop, rock, alternative and all musicians in 2021.
I normally not a fan of Remix albums but this completely won me over. The 80s dance sound is perfectly mixed with Perfume Genius and definitely a great driving with the windows down type album.
Favorite track: Your Body Changes Everything (Boy Harsher Remix).
2020 saw the release of "Set My Heart On Fire Immediately," Perfume Genius’ most celebrated album to date which topped many end of year lists and cemented him as one of his generations most innovative and essential artists. Today, Perfume Genius (Mike Hadreas) announces "IMMEDIATELY Remixes," available February 19, a companion album which sees every song on Set My Heart On Fire Immediately remixed in original running sequence by an all-star cast of Jaakko Eino Kalevi, A. G. Cook, Jim-E Stack, Planningtorock, Jenny Hval, Initial Talk, Boy Harsher, Nídia, Danny L Harle, Westerman, Actress, Koreless and Katie Dey.
"I'm very honored to have all these incredible musicians rework these songs,” says Hadreas. “I felt personally remixed listening to their versions, hearing the spirit of my song completely transformed was very magical. Each one feels like a little portal to a fucked up shared world."
From operatic acid-rave ('Just A Touch’) to opulent 80's synth-funk ('On The Floor’), ambient club polyrhythms (‘Moonbend’) to breakbeat-addled electronic pop (‘Describe’), tech-damaged tremolo waltz (‘One More Try’) to a mid-song running artist commentary on the remix itself ('Leave’), "IMMEDIATELY Remixes" is an endlessly surprising, imaginative and replayable set to match its source material.
