Austra (DJ Set), Doldrums (DJ Set)
We are super pumped to bring twin DJ sets by spooky Canadians Austra and Doldrums! Come out and get ~haunted~.
- AUSTRA (DJ SET) -
"Toronto's Austra is epically haunting electro that darkly throbs with thunderously rich club beats... the kind of booming beats that go creep in the night.
The trio is comprised of Katie Stelmanis, Maya Postepski and Dorian Wolf, and together they make those kinds of sounds that get under your skin and cling to your bones.
Their recent release, The Beat and the Pulse, is not only a perfect title for what this band sounds like, but it's also super solid in its dark, ambient awesomeness. It's got a mighty good goth-y groove going on... maybe The Knife meets Cold Cave or something.
Oh yeah, that 12" was put out by One Big Silence (also home to Diamond Rings), the record label run by Mike Haliechuk of Fucked Up. Anyway, you should check out Austra. They'll change your mood. " ohmyrockness
- DOLDRUMS (DJ SET) -
A hypnotic mixture of beat-laden trance, sensuous pop, sample collage and noise experimentalism, Doldrums come to us by way of Toronto, with numerous cult favorite releases, including a split with Portishead on XL, three 7" records on We Are Busy Bodies, and a VHS split with Parrot Talk.
