Young Galaxy quietly released one of the best singles of their career last week, a bonus track from their excellent 2015 release Falsework. The Montreal trio are in fine electro-disco form on “Were You Ever a Dreamer?”, which has a deep, soulful swing. It’s a slow, smooth synth-pop swaggerer of the highest order.

Young Galaxy are on tour right now. And Falsework is available from Paper Bag Records.

MP3: Johan Agebjörn – You Passed Through (Feat. Young Galaxy)

johan-agebjorn

We’ve been long-time, no, FOREVER admirers of Lund-based producer Johan Agebjörn, not least for his work as one-half of Sally Shapiro. As Canadian bloggers, we’ve only written about him once before, when Sally Shapiro collaborated with Toronto’s Electric Youth on the Somewhere Else now-classic track “Starman”. So today, we’re so pleased to hear him working with Montreal’s Young Galaxy on the latest single from his phenomenal solo record Notes.

An organ-based electronic waltz, it’s a deeply immersive track, meditative and warm, with Young Galaxy vocalist Catherine McCandless turning in a truly inspired performance. A perfect song for winter wandering and pondering. In fact, we really can’t recommend Agebjörn’s new album more highly for that. Notes is out February 10 on Paper Bag, and you should order your copy now.
