Remixes from Lion

Peter Murphy 6/16/2015


Peter Murphy's Remixes from Lion is a companion piece to his 2014 LP of the same name, which saw the "Godfather of Goth" digging deep into electro-pop and darkwave textures with mostly positive results. Produced by Killing Joke's Martin "Youth" Glover, Lion was a typically moody affair with a surprising amount of venom, and with its thick, synth-heavy sound, lends itself well to the remix process. Rather than farm it out to various DJs and producers, Glover handled most of the remixes himself, giving it a cohesion similar to the original release. If the extended mixes feel a little too early-'90s at times, it can be forgiven considering that both artist and producer were enjoying a heyday in those heady times of surging alt-rock and college radio. The throwback sound works well on standouts like "I Am My Own Name" and the heavy "Hang Up." Also featured are a handful of bonus tracks from the Lion sessions, the best of which is the Bowie-esque "Gabriel," which comes off like a gothy "Drive-In Saturday" with its lush, glammy arrangement. Like most remix albums, this is hit or miss, but fans of Murphy, Glover, and their 2010s collaborations won't be disappointed. ~ Timothy Monger
