The physical copies of Henry Laufer’s Vacation EP host a raft of remixes by Nicolas Jaar, Salva, Groundislava, and Airhead. The latter name, Airhead, is the brainchild of Rob McAndrews and besides his notable collaboration with James Blake in 2010, he’s released next to nothing. However, throughout the past couple months, when he’s had some spare time from providing his services as the guitarist for James Blake’s live sets, he’s crafted an EP, set to be released on R&S later this year.
His interpretation of Shlohmo‘s ‘The Way You Do’ offers a taste of what to expect from his forthcoming record. Airhead’s rendering is a meticulous and stunningly diffuse tune that turns on slow, yearning chords and ominous undertones.
