Austra
Future Politics

Austra’s third album Future Politics arrives just at the right time. It has the ambitious mission of making sense of the current state of the world. Future Politics is filled with crystalline anthems, inspired by group leader Katie Stelmanis’ time living in Montreal and Mexico City, that have enough...view item »


Austra
Olympia

A few years ago an unusual thing happened. I got massively into Zola Jesus and that’s despite one of the jokers here telling me she sounded like Shakespeare’s Sister. ‘Stridulum II’ is still one of my most enjoyed records of r...view item »


Austra + Gina X
Mayan Drums

This is one of those 12”s where you get pretty much an entire LP of mixes of one song. I’m sorry but I’m not reviewing all of them. On the first side there’s the original, an instrumental and an a capella, and then on the other side there’s the Zeus B Held Voice Versa Remix, Doldrums Remix and Herve Retro Dark Dub....view item »

Austra
Feel It Break Deluxe Edition

With the success of Zola Jesus and The Knife reverberating indefinitely, it was about time for a Frankenstein-like welding of the two. Austra appear purpose built on paper, gothy female vocals?

Austra
Sparkle

I'm not sure what Austra are. From listening to their slightly underwhelming album they are a kind of Zola Jesus-lite without the impressive hooter (voice). Here, they've been remixed by various producers I've never heard of. MNDR makes them sound like Debbie Harry fronting ...view item »

Austra
Beat And The Pulse

This is dark electro that had the guys in the office proper creaming their pants.They are avid readers of Wire so that should tell you which direction we are heading in. It's quite minimal and brooding. It has atmosphere and mood in spades. It reminds me of The Knife but with more gothic overtones. It sounds great and the production is full of w...view item »
