This twin set of brilliant musicians has been gaining an electronic audience for a while, arguably beginning with the hot mash of Mylo's "Paris Four Hundred" and "Walking With A Ghost". 2010 brings the sisters' new single off of Sainthood, "Alligator", and a 17-track EP jam-packed with a slew of mixes for your aural pleasure. The majority of the mixes are under or around 5 minutes and length and vary in style. Standouts of this group include Passion Pit's retro-effervescent mix, the electronically-spastic and nearly beatless mix provided by Four Tet, and Automatic Panic's drum kit n' moog-fest. VHS or Beta provides an inspired freestyle-esque mix as well. The EP also contains some club-length mixes provided by Josh Harris, Hamel, Kevin St. Croix, Mad Decent, and Morgan Page. This group of mixers also steer the track in a variety of directions, with Mad Decent's techy and glitchy mix being the most radical of the bunch. Josh Harris and Hamel give standard club mixes while Kevin St. Croix drives the track into grungy electro territory. Morgan Page serves up the most solid club offering of the package though with a classy progressive house treatment. There are plenty of options for all listeners, but regardless of which mix you pick the girls still sound fantastic.
