The Sun Glitters remix of Shocking Pinks’ “St. Louis” is marvelously aqueous — filmy, bubbling sound swallowing Gemma Symes’ distant voice. The result is stunning: the song feels eerie and woozy, pulsing ominously, changing shape and slowly reconfiguring over and over and over. Even when the drums kick in, at around the 2:30 mark, Symes’ voice makes the song feel paranormal. It drifts sadly and spookily between the washes of synths, a lone voyager on a strange electronic sea.
