It's been awhile since we've heard anything from Matthew Dear that wasn't, at least vaguely, band oriented. And it's been over two years since we've gotten a remix from Mr. Dear.

This all changed today, with the release of Matthew Dear's remix of Nigel Godrich featuring band Ultraísta's "Smalltalk".

In a very different approach from Prefuse 73's remix of the same band, Dear stretches the original song to nearly double its length, and ups its electronic abstraction ten fold.

Dear crafts "Smalltalk" into something very in line with his earlier work, though he still leaves Laura Bettinson's angelic vocals.

Listen to it above.
