Julien Baker releases ‘Little Oblivions Remixes’ EP

Julien Baker has released her Little Oblivions Remixes EP.

The new collection sees renowned artists reworking tracks from her recently released album, Little Oblivions. Little Oblivions Remixes features remixes from Half Waif, Helios, Gordi, Thao, and Jesu. Just yesterday, Baker shared the remix of “Ringside” from Australian singer-songwriter Gordi.

“I first met Julien in Barcelona in 2017,” Gordi explains. “We spent a munch of time together at Eaux Claires festival in 2018 making music – we even played an hour long improvised set together to a crowd of a thousand people from this treehouse that was like a huge musical instrumenta with lots of tiny loop pedal stations… it was as weird as it sounds. But because of the way we think about chords and melodies and songwriting, we could really connect on the fly and make something beautiful. I loved having the opportunity to dig through the stems on this new Julien track and reimagine it.”

Previously, Baker shared the Jesu remix of “Favor” and the Helios remix of “Bloodshot.”

Thao explains of her Little Oblivions Remixes contribution:

“I was immediately drawn to ‘Ziptie’ for Julien’s beautiful melodies and haunting, arresting imagery. I knew I wanted to create a lot of different additional sounds and melodies inspired by the lyrics. I pictured a sort of post-apocalyptic, incredulous, acerbic, off-kilter and morose dance party (one of my top 3 dance party themes). I programmed rough sketches of the drum parts and built out the track with synths, bass, guitar, and drum machines. I asked my friend and incredible drummer Jason Slota to record live parts. I edited and patched segments of his drums, and then glued everything together with more synths and vocals. It was an immense pleasure to immerse myself in such beautiful vocal tracks, and I wanted to bring them to the fore as much as possible. I’m so happy I got to remix this song. Thank you Julien!”
