CORYMB is Boom Bip's adjunct to SEED TO SUN, and its opening track, "From Left to Right" has the same feel of abstract hip-hop that marked that album (albeit it with a touch more electric guitar). But a good part of CORYMB consists of remixes. Several of the remixers are simpatico with Boom Bip's own sensibilities: cLOUDDEAD take the abstraction of "Closed Shoulders" one step further, into near ambience, while Lali Puna put the rhythm front and center on their mix of "Awaiting an Accident." Others, like Venetian Snares, do their own thing -- "The Unthinkable" becomes a frenzied drum 'n' bass, for instance, while Four Tet bring a jazzy double bass to "Third Stream." Mogwai make "The Use of Unacceptable Colors in Nature" into the sonic equivalent of watching a sunset over a mountain lake. The Boards of Canada, similarly, give a CAMPFIRE HEADPHASE-era remix to "Last Walk Around Mirror Lake," making it even more dreamy than before. The remainder of this album are tracks from a live Peel Session, but here "First Walk" has a more rhythmic quality than its album counterpart. A dreamy continuation.
