Here’s a cool rework (saying “remix” feels weird – you’ll understand when you press play) of the Antlers’ Burst Apart highlight “No Widows” by the cellist Brent Arnold, who’s calling his revision “Empty Windows.” He takes the original’s vocal line and some other elements and packs in layer upon layer of soaring, sweeping, emotive cellos. Apparently some of these cellos were recorded in a library in a castle, which is pretty appropriate – the whole thing sounds at once baroque and thoroughly modern. Check it out.

Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
