Your favorite quiet-to-ungodly-loud post-rock Scotsmen are no strangers to the guest-remix LP -- recall Kicking a Dead Pig -- so this grab bag of reworked tracks from the band's 2011 jam Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will is no amateur hour. Approaches pleasingly vary, but Uneasy '80s Sci-Fi Dance Party is the unofficial theme; the two versions of "Rano Pano" (Klad Hest's frantic NES-game-from-hell scramble and drone maven Tim Hecker's Drive-soundtrack-dissolving-in-feedback assault) sum it up. If it's snarling guitars you seek, go for The Soft Moon's feral "San Pedro."
