So when Vaynshtok approached me to premiere a remix he did of "Yes, Some Things Are So Heavy" by Brooklyn indie-rock outfit Conveyor, I was interested; once I heard the song, I was hooked. Today's 12 O'Clock Track is the premiere in question, which you can hear after the jump.
Vaynshtok's remix is a moody, chopped-and-screwed take on the original, but halfway through the tune the producer cranks up the tempo and tosses some high-pitched, hyperfast synth patterns into the mix. It can sound a bit jarring at times, but Vaynshtok keeps the remix grounded in the woozy atmosphere that opens the track. Take a listen to it below, and give a listen to the original tune by Conveyor, who play an early show at the Empty Bottle on Sunday.
