Noel Gallagher gets remixed by Beyond the Wizard’s Sleeve (listen); Webster Hall show on presale
by Bill Pearis
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds‘ new single “Ballad of the Mighty I” has been “re-animated” by Beyond the Wizard’s Sleeve, aka Erol Alkan and Richard Norris’ psychedelic disco collaboration that recently did similar work on Temples’ entire debut album. A good candidate for what they do, the song gets stripped down, and rebuilt with harps and a wall of melotrons — it might even be better than the original. (It might also be BtWS’s best “re-imagination” since Midlake’s “Roscoe.”) You can stream that, along with the original version, below.
