The remixed track is pulled from Coughlan's upcoming EP which features unreleased material from his 2021 album Song Of Co-Aklan.
Today, we welcome to our screens a trippy new music video from the singular Cathlan Coughlan. It accompanies the track, 'Crow Mother II', an electronic remix by Kevin Sharkey.
Now, a year later, Coughlan is set to release an intriguing addendum to that album - E.P. of Co-Aklan. This will be a digital-only offering out via Dimple Discs. It contains three unreleased songs from the 2021 Co-Aklan sessions, plus the remixed 'Crow Mother II'. Kevin Sharkey transforms the theatrical fable into a 6-minute acid-house tinged odyssey. The new EP will be available to stream and download this Friday, May 13th.
Coughlan notes, "'Crow Mother II' is the point where all the recent provocations come home to roost. We’ve insulted one another’s beliefs and holy ground, sold each other lethal products as though they were merchantable, and added poison to the leisure drinks.
So it’s time. Kevin Sharkey’s 'Unrepentant Acid' mix seeks to create a Third Summer Of Love, wherein the wise veterans of London’s acid house scene are shipped in time-lapse pods to view the end of the Anthropocene era, post-conflict, where the plankton inherit the nutrition and the real estate of Earth - but the individual planktons also, it seems, enjoy a good individual rave-up amid the murk of the deepening ocean. Can the plankton’s own Stone Roses second album bust-up be far off?”
Have fun figuring out what that all means while enjoying the pleasantly disorienting music video directed by Andy Golding (The Wolfhounds, Dragon Welding). Golding was also responsible for February 2021's video release 'Owl In The Parlour'.
E.P. of Co-Aklan will be released Friday, May 13 on all digital services.
