Death Cab For Cutie - "Keys and Codes Remix EP"

Death Cab For Cutie's excellent album Codes And Keys released earlier this year, and the band relied on keyboards and synths more than ever so it is only natural that they would release Keys and Codes, a remix EP.  Out last week on Atlantic Records, they enlisted Cut Copy, Ulrich Schnauss, Yeasayer, RAC, Dillon Francis, Unicorn Kid and The 2 Bears to put their own unique spin on 7 of the original Codes And Keys tracks. 

Standouts include the glittering 80's time-warp that the Scottish 8-bit producer Unicorn Kid puts on "Unobstructed Views" and the warped bass, squelching synths and minimal vocals that dubstep producer Dillon Francis uses on "Underneath The Sycamore".  Ulrich Schnauss uses some subterranean bass to give the standout "Home Is A Fire" a dreamy re-texturing and indie favorites Cut Copy give "Doors Unlocked And Open" a tropical disco vibe.
