Sun Masks is an album full of evocative tension, a daydreamy blend of poetry and electronic composition that's as colorful as it is haunting. Each remix captures a different part of this mood. Kim Ann Foxman makes a dusky synth pop cut out of "Hoping By Shopping." Borusiade, a Romanian artist with music on labels like Cititrax and Jennifer Cardini's Correspondant, smudges "Wrong Love" into a hazy darkwave ballad.
Avalon Emerson and Lena Willikens both remix what for me is easily Sun Masks' best song, "Lego." Willikens remoulds it into a lean and psychedelic groover, precisely the kind of thing she makes and plays so well. Emerson's remix is in the style of her Cybernedits, letting the original play out more or less unchanged over a rumbling techno beat. The result is exceptional, a strange and euphoric banger that's up there with "The Frontier." Beyond presenting a bundle of wonderfully offbeat summer club tracks, Sun Masks Remixes highlights the link between the old music Dark Entries reissues and the new music it inspires.
