The mix of I Didn’t See It Coming by Cold Cave is now available to download for free from Stereogum!
The track is one of the three new mixes of ‘Write About Love’ songs which appear on the forthcoming Come on Sister 12″ single which is available from next week (UK) and the following one (USA) via Rough Trade / Matador. You can also pre-order it directly from us, with copies sent out on the release date.
Wes Eisold, aka Cold Cave, says of the mix:
“This will be scattered, but.. In 1998 I lived on a street called the Eastern Promenade in Portland, Maine. A past-time of mine was walking the sea lined street listening to “If You’re Feeling Sinister” and “The Boy With The Arab Strap.” Belle was new and exciting and it felt as if articulation, literation and genuine honesty had made a much needed return that hadn’t existed like this since the Smiths. Elegant and seedy. I missed their first Boston show but it was instantly bootlegged. I bought a copy shortly after at Mystery Train from Peter Prescott. It’s still the very small personal triumphs that make everything worth it, and I’m happy that years later I got to release records on the same label as Belle and Burma. I wanted the remix to take me back to Boston days of late 90’s/early 2000’s. Gibby’s Start, the Pill or the Manray. It works for me then and now. Hope you enjoy.”
