Hits The Spot: Loves Eternal Odyssey

We first shone a light on Abe a while ago, and today the torch burns in their direction again with this remix of How To Dress Well's Can't See My Own Face.

As influenced-admirers of Tom Krell's softly-softly approach, Abe delicately re-direct his bedroom R 'n' B deeper into late night Benzo oblivion; opting not to alter the arrangement dramatically, they simply stretch the original out, introducing extended and re-worked 'tro's and a little of the warped 90's soul sound they're quickly establishing as their own.

Lifting an already fragile vocal, it's re-laid loosely over loops old and new with a second-hand stickiness that leaves it sounding barely there, curled up at the edges, close to losing it's grip on a residual reality...

What the fuck am I talking about? What does that even mean? I'll tell you: nothing. You can make your own minds up, you don't need me chatting sixth-form shit @ U.
