Pearl & The Oysters‘ Stones Throw debut Coast 2 Coast released back in April and now Juju and Jojo are calling upon some of their favorite musicians and collaborators to remix tracks from the record for their upcoming Coast 2 Coast Remixes EP, out December 8.
For the first song, the duo reached out to Los Angeles artist Vicky Farewell for a bubble pop version of “Fireflies”. Where Coast 2 Coast sees the morning sun rise over swamps of Florida and sandy L.A. beaches, Coast 2 Coast Remixes captures the duo at night, sipping colorful cocktails while watching rockets land on the moon.
Next up: Salami Rose Joe Louis’ remix of “Loading Screen”, a track about “screen addiction and over-stimulation in the www age.” Using her studies in planetary sciences as inspiration, Louis explores ideas of multiverses and climate change in her music. She shares this concern with Pearl & The Oysters, who express anxiety about the state of the planet throughout Coast 2 Coast.
Friend and labelmate Jerry Paper shared their remix of “Konami”, a song which was originally inspired by Juliette’s white noise machine used to overcome restless nights. Pearl & The Oysters have been friends with Jerry Paper since they moved to L.A., and supported them on tour in the US which is where Paper first heard the song.
