Young Galaxy – Peripheral Visionaries
Young Galaxy – Cover Your Tracks
Okay, we really should have had these up a few months ago. Our bad. If you haven’t already heard, Montreal’s Young Galaxy have pulled a genre change, away from indie rock and towards dark disco, for their new album Shapeshifting (out Feb. 8). These singles indicate that they have made the correct decision. The change in genre was helped by having Dan Lissvik of Studio produce. Interestingly he produced the whole thing without ever meeting them, it was all done over Skype. Can’t wait to hear this album. Also, apparently one of their songs will soon be remixed by Grimes. Yes please!
Purity Ring – Ungirthed
Purity Ring is a new project from Corin Roddick of Gobble Gobble and former Gobble member Megan James, who now lives in Halifax. What an amazing first single. We anxiously await the next. Thanks to Happy Trendy for the tip.
Gatekeeper – Serpent (D’eon Remix)
Thom Yorke is a fan of Montreal’s D’eon. Look, there it is, D’eon’s work of genius “Kill A Man With A Joystick in Your Hand” sitting there near the end of the mix. Also, just heard this D’eon remix of “Serpent” by Gatekeeper. Excellent stuff. There is word of a 12″ around the corner, a split with Grimes. Oh yes.
