Julien Baker Announces 'Little Oblivion Remixes'

Julien Baker, has announced Little Oblivions Remixes EP which features select tracks off the original release, featuring remixed and reworked and Hand selected by Baker herself, it features contributions from singer-songwriter Half Waif, celebrated electronic composer Helios, Australian folktonica songwriter Gordi and shoegaze pioneer Jesu. Along with the news, Baker has shared Helios’ take on “Bloodshot.”

Helios says, “I was excited when Julien Baker reached out about doing a remix, because I respect her work and it was an interesting challenge to do a remix of singer/songwriter material in the context of my approach which is more in the electronic/ambient world. I wanted to keep the integrity of the original composition, which was great, but also wanted to create enough of a spin to give it a distinctly new quality. My approach to remixes is to use as much of the original material as possible, but to use those elements as a base to create a variety of new textures. So I took a lot of the guitar and percussion elements and ran them through some old tape recorders to give it a rough “handmade” quality, reversed them, chopped them up or manipulated them with reverbs and delays to create ambient soundscapes. I treated Julien’s vocals to match the rougher, more lo-fi quality I used with the instrumental elements. Harmonically, I changed up the chord changes to give the vocal melody a slightly new framework and arrangement on which to sit and create some new twists and turns and builds in the composition. It was one of the most fun remixes I’ve done to date, with such strong original material it gave me a lot to play around with.”

Baker recently played her first show in support of Little Oblivions at The Newport Folk Festival and will hit the road this fall for tours in both North America and Europe. The first leg will kick off in Birmingham, AL on September 3 and the tour will take her across the US concluding on November 16 in St. Louis, MO. The European tour starts on April 15, 2022 in Utrecht.

Baker has performed her single “Hardline” on Late Night with Seth Meyers, “Faith Healer” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and “Favor” on The Late Late Show with James Corden. She has also appeared on CBS This Morning’s Saturday Sessions. The performance, filmed in Nashville, featured the album tracks “Faith Healer,” “Heatwave” and “Hardline.”
