On this remix album, David Pajo (ex-Slint, Tortoise) offers up his Aerial M project to the cutting boards of Flacco, Tied & Tickled Trio, DJ Your Food and Bundy K. Brown. All four tracks are based around Aerial M's "Wedding Song No. 3," but a number of the band's other songs pop up on the record in some form. Flacco comes up with a Tortoise-y treatment, laying chugging percussion behind the song's major-key guitar melody. Tied & Tickled obliterate the original version of the track with a hyperactive saxophone and the sounds of an orchestra warming up. DJ Your Food builds his mix on the original track's "bridge," treating it with tranced-out, far-off effects (think Brown's Directions in Music record) and mind-melding beats. But it's Brown's 18-minute epic that covers the most ground. He best captures the spirit of the disc when he introduces the solemn riff from M's "Aass" and obscures its appearance like so many funhouse mirrors. Post Global Music makes for an interesting, if not entirely on-target, addition to the Aerial M discography.
