Balmorhea's All is Wild, All is Silent has received praise from critics, fans, and most importantly from the band's close friends. Many of their friends are not surprisingly musicians themselves. The idea to release the All is Wild, All is Silent Remixes evolved organically as the band asked a few of their closest friends if they'd like to remix a track. To their surprise 11 of their friends jumped at the opportunity to create remixes of these wordless narratives that have become so meaningful to them.
The resulting album is distinctly more experimental than the original album, but no less joyous and haunting. Many of the tracks retain Balmorhea's uniquely American optimism, though some hardly leave a trace of the original's simplicity and restraint. Eluvium's 17 minute remix of "Settler" opens the album, evolving from swirls of vocals and upright bass into swells of blissful drones. In contrast, The Fun Years' remix of "Coahuila" brings the drums to the forefront, almost morphing the track into something akin to a pop/rock song. Yet another appThe acoustic fingerpicking of "Elegy" is turned inside-out with Bexar Bexar's chaotic and metallic wall-of-noise remix. Peter Broderick's unique remix of "November 1, 1832" begins as a spoken letter to Rob and Michael of Balmorhea. As the track develops, multiple layers of Peter's intense vocals build, resonating the song's unforgettable feeling of longing.
