[Audio] Austra’s ‘Habitat’

 

Austra

Torontonian ElectroPop chanteuse Austra is gearing up for the release of her brand new EP. Titled Habitat the new one will come not only in digital format, but also in a limited run of 500 12”s. Following on from her last single, Hurt Me Now, itself taken from the amazing Olympia album, Habitat sees Katie Stelmanis returning to her more ethereal roots whilst injecting a little Deep House flair.

Long time live favourite, Habitat is an undulating, tribal epic. Moody and enigmatic, the bass rumbles, the kick drives and the uneasy industrial instrumentation rattles around the track creating a magical and futuristic soundscape. Katie’s haunting vocals temper the track’s edge and instilling a cinematic, narrative, feel. A timeless slice of electronic music.

MNDR reMixes Austra

Following on from their critically acclaimed début album, ‘Feel It Break’ Canadian Avant-Pop outfit Austra are earing up for the release of a reMix collection, titled ‘Sparkle’.

Alongside some producers such as Planningtorock and Mark Pistel featured in the package is this slice of dark tropical from New York’s raining SynthPop act MNDR. Amanda and Peter get their steel drums going for this mix which, combined with pulsating synths serve to create a mysterious vibe for the previously sparkling track. It’s a totally different mood for the song, but one that is perfectly complimentary to the original.

Diamond Rings reMixes Austra

It’s team Toronto verses team Toronto as Canadian SynthPop trio Austra are given the reMix treatment by the flamboyant Mr. Diamond Rings.

The track is part two of a six-part weekly series of Diamond Rings reMixes called ‘Rainbow reMix’ in anticipation of the Astralwerks re-release of his ‘Special Affections’ album. DR takes the track and gives it a solid ElectroPop going over, with retro beats and chainsaw guitar synth, before bringing it down with a chilled piano outro.
