Fawns Of Love – Someday (Robin Guthrie Version)

Robin Guthrie has recorded and mixed The Fawns Of Love track Someday from last years Permanent album which I said was ripe for a remix when it first came out!

Guthrie has always been one of my favourite remixes and he slows the track right down turning it into a dreamy, swirling ethereal track that highlights the lovely voice of Jenny Andreotti.

These follow the direction of the art-punk sounds of The Fire Engines, The Scars and Josef K as well as the revivalists such as Navvy and Franz Ferdinand.
