Milwaukee’s music scene may boast oodles of top-shelf bands and an ever-growing number of high-profile acts, but it’s rarely given the remix treatment. That’s a shame, since remixes can offer listeners unique takes on previously adored material, and entry points to material that might otherwise be unfamiliar or unknown. Milwaukee-based electronic duo Kiings (a.k.a. Sean Foran and Chris Siegel) don’t get too obscure with their new Warehouses Possessed By The City EP, but for anyone who has yet to fall in love with, say, Field Report, the album is worth a listen. Warehouses features remixes of tunes from Field Report, Boy Blue, Altos, Gina Barrington, and Phox, and is being released through the city’s Unlooped label. (The EP’s title is taken from a Field Report lyric.) Even if you’re already familiar with these artists, Kiings’ lush, widescreen remix treatment casts the songs in an entirely different—and complimentary—light. The album can be streamed or downloaded for free below.
