San Franciscan shoegaze revisionists Weekend recently took on the curious task of remixing “So I Can Grow,” the A-Side of post-Mika Miko gloom troopers Cold Showers’ recently released Decay single, out last month via Art Fag. (You may have also caught the B-side, a down-and-out take on the Cars “Double Life.”) It’s a nightmarish, nerve-shredding re-imagining that ups the tempo, stretches echos for days, and, using all possible means, conjures the sort of squall one might anticipate but never sidestep.
