I’m not in the habit of recommending a single on the strength of one mix, but in the case of Mono’s SLIMCEA GIRL, I’ll make an exception. The Aloof make a slow and dubby version that’s simply sublime; the instruments and vocals, starting with the strings and bass and adding layers incrementally to accrue and swell majestically. When the piano line comes it, it’s almost as a relief of the surging power. The original itself is no slouch: it’s reminiscent of 60s British pop, all sunshine and lights, even though the vocals tell of eating disorders. The various other mixes, ranging from the funky downtempo of Ashley Beedle or the acidic downtempo of Fuzz Townsend to the breaks of the Sol Brothers and Danmass, are fine to mediocre, but pale in comparison.
