WHOA. Here’s one of Detroit techno progenitors Kevin Saunderson (!) remixing Austra‘s “Home.” A 12″ is on the way with an Ital remix too. That couldn’t-be-anticipated-more next Austra album Olympia is out June 18.
Landscapes – In Limbo (Maya Postepski Remix)
Maya Postepski (Trust and Austra) again and again solidifies herself as one of the best remixers in the country, if not he world. Here is an epic, nine minute long reworking of dreamgaze band Landshapes. Silent Shout will be presenting Princess Century, Maya’s solo project, on May 25th in Toronto where she will be releasing her debut album, Lossless on Kennington Records.
Maya Postepski aka Princess Century (of Austra, formerly of Trust) strikes again. Beautiful remix!
Maya Postepski (of Trust and Austra) is bringing back her previously shelved solo project! Princess Century was one of our favourite faves before we started the music series and blog, and now we can expect a full album’s worth of material on April 29. Our first sneak peak is this video, which features Jess Forest of Castle If fame (who was amazing at our CMW showcase on Saturday). Directed by Kate Young and Leah Finkel.
Oh my God, new Austra. New album announced!! Olympia will be out June 17!
Great new track involving Toronto favourites Austra – this is a collaboration with UK producer Hervé.
Woodhands – Rock ‘n’ Roll Suicide
Well, this comes as a surprise. Presumably in anticipation for their tenth anniversary music festival, Paper Bag Records have released a cover album of the classic Bowie album. For free! Okay, well, we love Bowie, and we love a bunch of these artists, so we’re pretty happy.
Listen to Silent Shout favourites Austra, CFCF and Woodhands show off their glam side, then go to Paper Bag’s website and download this welcomed gift.
So, how about they do the whole discography now? Katie Stelmanis belting out I’m Afraid of Americans would be damn fine.

09.21 – Jef Barbara, Tops @ Le Cabaret du Mile End
Tonight, it’s clear that Mission Santa Cruz is the place to be, with two of the best live acts in the country, Austra and Doldrums, holding forth with the super-sexy Cosmetics opening. But if you can fit in Kuhrye-oo at Royal Phoenix, we highly recommend that too.
Silkken Laumann – House Of Common Problems
Prince Innocence – Girls
Moon King – Sleeping in My Car

Obviously all of these artists are worth seeing, but decisions have to be made. Doldrums and Moon King at Club Balattou is probably the best bet of the night. Warm Myth is also playing and Austra is DJing, just making it that much more amazing. Silkken Laumann at O Patro Vys and Prince Innocence at the Royal Phoenix are our other can’t-miss picks of the night. See whatever you can!
