Two of Baltimore’s best — Bruce Willen of now-defunct noise punks Double Dagger and William Cashion of synth-pop outfit Future Islands — have joined forces to form Peals, an intimate instrumental project set to release its first full-length, Walking Field, on May 14 via Thrill Jockey. Fitting then that “Blue Elvis,” a meditative sparkler off Peals’ upcoming debut, is getting the remix treatment from fellow Charm City luminary Dan Deacon. The hyperkinetic electro-wizard doesn’t overdo the enthusiasm on this alternate take, opting instead to speed it up just enough to encourage listeners out of their dimly lit rooms.
