New UK act Laminate Pet Animal gives Boston synthrock band Magic Man’s infectious song Out Of Mind a droopy, slowed down remix. The darkly simmering, sensually seductive version of a song I love very dearly won a remix contest that Magic Man had set up for the track. Every time I return to this remix, I find myself fully riveted and drifting along with the song’s swirly dreaminess. It’s certainly a change in atmosphere from Magic Man’s usually radiant and upbeat sound.

Laminate Pet Animal is a pretty cool and puzzling name, but there’s nothing confusing about how great the UK band’s debut single Because Of You, released earlier this year. Because Of You starts out with a synthwavey Future Islands like vibe, but that quickly fades and transitions into deep, booming bass, paired with buttery vocals and elegant piano, much more Movement meets RÜFÜS DU SOL. The darkly pumping, infectiously grooving electronic track is on Laminate Pet Animal’s newly released EP, Shed The Skin, which can be streamed on soundcloud and purchased on iTunes.
