First Spin: Get School of Seven Bells' Remix of A Place to Bury Strangers' 'So Far Away'

Here's to opposites. For their remix of A Place to Bury Strangers' "So Far Away," soft-spoken New York dreamweavers School of Seven Bells sanded (not dulled!) and bandaged the definitively blown-out textures in which the former specializes. The result is dynamite: uncompromising, ethereal, soft in all the right places, serrated everywhere else.
