‘Things Take Time, Take Time’ according to the next album by Australian artist Courtney Barnett. What doesn’t take much time is messing about with some of the tracks on it, courtesy of a neat ‘Stem Mixer’ site launched in advance of the album.
It offers up three of the album’s tracks in their individual stems: drums, bass, various guitars, synths and vocals depending on the track.
The interaction involves dragging faders to turn the volume up or down on each stem, as well as muting or soloing them, with the ability to create a loop and set it running too.
Unsurprisingly you can’t save the results or share them, but the site points fans in the direction of pre-saving or pre-ordering the album itself to hear Barnett’s official mix when it comes out.
