Codes In The Clouds have worked with a huge variety of artists over the years. In 2010 they released their Paper Canyon Recycled record, with remixes from Nils Frahm, Rival Consoles, Maybeshewill, Library Tapes and more. More recently, they have released records together with Erased Tapes and Hobbledehoy Records, as well as a series of remix collaborations offering unique interpretations of their tracks.
A little over a year after releasing the self-titled album Codes In The Clouds, the band proudly present a pair of new versions of the album track ‘Sixes and Seventeens’ – bringing together defining artists Mogwai and 65daysofstatic, and pressed with utmost care on a limited-edition 12” single.
Mogwai take an expansive approach with a cosmic, intense, triumphant timbre. Layering additional guitar, soft synthesizers, indistinct loops, and hazy who-knows-what…
65daysofstatic somewhat more brualist interpretation carries an anxious tension. In part both deconstructs and builds upon the original, slow-building, stately and beautiful.
Stephen from Codes says of the release: “It’s been such a huge privilege for us to collaborate on this project with two bands that have been so influential on us, and everyone else, for so long. Thinking back to the feeling of being in the crowd at Mogwai and 65 gigs, it makes you remember how lucky you are to have something out there that you’ve worked on together with them. It’s something really special to us. That’s why we had to press it to vinyl. We’re all incredibly excited.”
The Sixes and Seventeens (Versions) 12″ contains two new versions of the song by Mogwai and 65daysofstatic from 2019’s self-titled full-length, as well as the original album version by Codes In The Clouds. Black vinyl limited to 300 copies worldwide can be pre-ordered here
