Austra : Home # Ital remix

Austra - "Home"

For their second album Olympia – the follow-up to 2011’s excellent Feel It Break, out June 18 via Domino – Toronto’s Austra have expanded both their sound and their line-up, doubling in size from a trio to a six-piece and throwing more classic house and techno influences into the mix alongside the band’s usual icy synth-pop and frontwoman Katie Stelmanis’ goth diva vocals. As such, first single “Home” has proved fertile ground for remixing: Detroit dance legend Kevin Saunderson has already turned in a great old-school version, and now former Black Eyes/ Mi Ami member Daniel Martin-McCormick AKA Ital has transformed the track into an epic, immersive slice of twitchy, tranced-out electronica. Compare and contrast with the lush, shapeshifting original below.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
