Well, it certainly has been a while (about three years, in fact) since we last heard from the kraut-obsessed synth adventurers known as Tussle. The group has just reappeared on a new split-12″ (pictured above) with the experimental-electro alias of Trans Am drummer Sebastian Thomson, Publicist, for a release that arrived this week courtesy of SF-based label Voltaire. Here we have Tussle’s blistering remix of Thomson’s “Hand to Mouth” tune (also posted for download a while back), on which the sonic tinkerers expand the original track into more of a dancefloor heater by more than doubling the song’s length and taking it on a voyage through a seemingly endless sea of analog processors. The Split Infinitive EP, which will have its official release party in SF this Saturday (details here), features one original and one remix from each party involved, and can be streamed in its entirety after the jump.
