With as much Indie music as Noctum processes, somehow this tune skated by his radar entirely. It was only after hearing a friend sing along to a clubby remix that he scoped the original and shared it with Tonebreaker.

Our initial remix attempts yielded a sort of two-step revival that neither Tonebreaker nor Noctum were genuinely happy with. With frustration rising and the project almost on the ropes, we determined that while we enjoyed many of the elements that we had designed, working without raw stems left us with very little creative breathing room.

So we scrapped the original track and looked at what remained.

With no acapella of Lykke Li vocals available, we searched the dregs of the Internet to find a generic European Cover CD by the non-descript name, "Tribute Mega Stars." On this was a very solid recording of an unknown vocalist singing "I Follow Rivers." We would love to credit the source of these vocals but without any real documentation there's no way to find out who she is. So we placed these vocals over our arrangement and immediately, they breathed life into the track revealing empty sonic gaps for us to sink our collective teeth into.

Three weeks later we had a track... Nay... A cover. Outside the lyrical content, everything's been sampled, sliced and synthesized to fit our new iteration. Without further adieu, we present Libations & Oscillations cover of Lykke Li's phenomenal song, I Follow Rivers.

If you dig the tune, please toss us a heart over at Hype Machine - http://hypem.com/track/1r0bq/Libations+&+Oscillations+-+I+Follow+Rivers+(Lykke+Li+Cover)
