New Song
A few days ago I recorded a new song in my kitchen. Video is here. Song is below. Hope you like it.
State Shirt – Suffer Someday (Live)

Remixes
A bunch of new remixes have come in. Here are just a few. Remix contest winner will be announced shortly!
Diode (Terry Burton) – Computer (Analog Mix by Diode)
The Orchestral Movement of 1932 – Conway Station Road (The Next Train Mix)
Show Your Shoe – Fell Out Of The Sky (Show Your Shoe remix)
Teru – Enter…
Decaying_Machine – Chemma Chi [dark times machine rmx]
Ballzac – Fell Out Of The Sky (commercial dance remix)
Christof Barber – Computer (Christof Barber remix)

I remixed myself
Is it a faux pas to remix yourself? A couple days ago I created a mashup of several Vidian songs with my song “Life Isn’t Everything”. It also features vocals from c.layne, Brad Sucks and Kristen Hersh for good measure. Definitely doesn’t sound like State Shirt– has more of a Daft Punk feel.
State Shirt – Almost Alive (mash-up)

More songs to remix
A few more songs are available for remixing. Source files for Life Isn’t Everything, Don’t Die and Edison’s Medicine are available for downloading here.

    Self-remixes are always a great way to experiment with music and come out with alternate versions, which is also a fun way to make a “b-sides” compilation or whatever. There’s plenty of history of mainstream acts doing that too (The Roots, Beck, Cibo Matto, Postal Service, and even The Beatles – long before Love they did several mixes of Revolution 1, Let It Be, and Across The Universe, for example).

    I also need to get better about remixing stuff. I’ve wanted to remix some of your songs for years but somehow your contest wasn’t enough of an inspiration for me to finally do it.
