When Nine Inch Nails frontman, Trent Reznor, isn’t winning the Academy Award for Best Original Score for The Social Network or composing the theme song for Black Ops II, he finds time to produce seductively eerie music as How to Destroy Angels, HTDA. Alongside his wife, Mariqueen Maandig, fellow film scorer, Atticus Ross, and Nine Inch Nails graphic designer, Rob Sheridan, An Omen EP marked the second extended play from the post-industrial overachievers. Trent said of the release, “We were experimenting around with the juxtaposition of something familiar and almost folky sounding sitting in a very cold and sterile environment.” Deep. “Ice Age” is hauntingly sexy with a mandolin that makes me want to get the yule log out and make a Christmas fire of my own. To our satisfaction, Deadmau5 got his nimble little hands on the juxtaposized folk masterpiece adding an arousing array of calming bleeps and bloops. While I may not showboat around town in my Honda Civic, windows down and mid-winter, blasting this remix, I will sit quietly on a Sunday and let it bring a tear to my eye.
