Brooklyn-based quintet Extra Life recently debuted a brand new Tyondai Braxton (Battles) remix of their single “Head Shrinker,” with Stereogum, available for mp3 download here via LOAF. Stereogum premiered the band’s memorable “Head Shrinker” video a few months back, and calls the Braxton remix an “insectoid scratch-implosion, giving [Extra Life] their first pair of slippery dancing shoes.”

Taken from Extra Life’s lauded sophomore album Made Flesh, out now on LOAF, “Head Shrinker” gets a unique re-invention by Braxton as a futuristic robo disco group that creates an intricate web of electronic sound. The remix is off of the band’s forthcoming remix EP, Splayed Flesh, coming out June 22nd on Planaria/Sockets.

Extra Life will be touring Europe throughout May and June in support of Made Flesh and Splayed Flesh.
