808 State

Thermo Kings

Hypnotic

A brilliant collection of remixes. 808 State themselves handle the majority, with a couple drop-ins from Brian Eno (good) and the Propellerheads (eh). Starting with a lush melodies, tracks like “Joyrider,” “Balboa,” and “Lopez” take on new and unexpected dimensions. Eno’s rendition of “Lopez” exists in a realm of rockatronics that I’d never known existed before, while the paranoid mix of “Paradan” by 808 State sounds like music for dejected robots.

Back in 2018, Lily and Generoso selected Adirley Queirós’s Once There Was Brasilia as a top ten film. That feature’s cinematographer, Joana Pimenta, has now co-directed with Queirós one of the most expansive political films we’ve seen this year, Dry Ground Burning. Lily and Generoso interviewed Pimenta at AFI Fest earlier this month.
