Its been a couple days away from the blog, sorry for the dust thats started to collect on the site. I spent my long weekend in Montreal and Montebello for a wedding of one of my best friends. Amazing time, minimal internet access.
Here’s what I’ve been hearing:
–Friends With Both Arms posted the new Memoryhouse video for “Caregiver”. The band are one of the many great artists playing the SXSW Silver Series, a busking-style event run by Invisible Children to raise awareness for the 25th year of war in East Africa.
–Wolf Gang does an amazing cover of Radiohead’s “Pyramid Song”.
–Head to Soundcloud to hear Altrice’s take on Caribou’s album Swim. Remember that contest to remix Caribou’s record? Altrice took top honours.
I came across this haunting acoustic version of “Lions In Cages” by Wolf Gang the other day. Beautifully done. The original version, which is quite a lot more upbeat, appears on my best of 2010 mixtape called “Class Of 2010”, co presented by Aux.tv. Its coming together as we speak, hopefully it will launch at the beginning of next week.
