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.

Montreal’s Young Galaxy have shown themselves to be amazing remixers this year, we’re still really into their take on Rachel Zeffira. But their Holobody remix, of one of our favourite songs of last year, tops it wethinks. Sounding huge!

Check out Holobody’s brand new album here.

Montreal’s Young Galaxy flex their pop muscles on Ultramarine, their fourth album and second since shape-shifting into an electronic outfit with the help of production from Studio’s Dan Lissvik. This album sees Catherine McCandless taking over full-time lead vocalist duty, and she shines while delivering earnest romanticisms and soaring choruses over bright synths and summery percussion. The release date is timed perfectly with the season, allowing the record to serve as the opening credits for the warm weather memories ahead. While opener “Pretty Boy” has the strongest emotional impact, it’s the earworm hook of “Priviliged Poor” and the hopeful lyrics of “New Summer” that keep drawing me back in.

Ultramarine is available through Paper Bag Records.

Young Galaxy delivers one of the best remixes we’ve heard this year – it’s a chugging krautrock dark electro epic, not what we’d have expected from them. Briliant!
