It's been a little while since we've heard from local lo-fi ambient popsters George&Caplin (in part, presumably, because Jeffrey Wentworth Stevens was busy recording a pair of killer EPs with Joe Sampson as Wentworth Kersey) but we've just received word that the duo have new material incoming. The first release we'll see, near the end of the year, is a remix album from Plastic Sound Supply of select tracks from the duo's last release, the excellent He Really Got Through to Advertising. Artists such as CacheFlowe, Equulei, Scaffolding and Colortone Library will provide a variety of takes on Advertising material in styles including experimental, dubstep, glitch hop, techno and shoegaze -- maybe even all at once. Then, sometime next year, G&C will release a proper follow up, which they've been working on for some time. We can't wait.
