The debut from Aussies Bananagun was packed with funk breakdowns, a polyrhthmic pulse, and a dash of ’60s soul. The band gives a nice bonus today with the release of a remix for their first single “Out Of Reach.” There’s few better people to tap for ‘60s psych than Frank Maston. He’s lent production talents to Paint and Bifannah, played flute with Olden Yolk and worked up a few great masterworks of his own that perfectly capture a ‘60s Library psych feel. For the remix of “Out Of Reach” he strips away the crackled production and slows the song down into a sultry bit of swooning soul. The chiming guitars are replaced with a gauzy soul-jazz aesthetic and a heavier emphasis on the bass. It’s a nice recasting of the song as summery lounge fare that cools as it caresses. You can nab both the extra track and Bananagun’s latest over at their Bandcamp.
