Noise Artists Remixing Railcar's "Cathedral with no Eyes"

Good news for fans of noise and the shrill! Later this month railcars will be releasing an EP with a number of equally talented noise artists’ remixes of the title track, from their latest album, "Cathedral With No Eyes". San Francisco’s own (or at least formerly so) Xiu Xiu  is providing one of the remixes, making a lovely scrambled version of an already chaotic song, with Portland’s White Rainbow and Massachusetts’ Truman Peyote also contributing their own versions. Other's promised to appear on the EP include Lucky Dragon and Neon Navajo with more still to be announced.  While the Truman Peyote version can be heard here and the White Rainbow remix can be previewed over at XLR8R, the patient will get to hear the Xiu Xiu adaptation, as well as the others, when the EP is released for free from Aria’s website.

In the meantime, as railcars finish up their European tour, Aria has been soliciting donations through Kickstarter so that he can do a full cover of the Kate Bush album Hounds of Love. So, if you’re curious to see how Aria Jalali’s imagination will render this album, drop him a few dimes and wait for the copy he will send. For a hint of how he might be inclined to interpret it check out his cover of the Cranberries' song “Linger” here.
