Alex Zelenka , ingénieur et remixeur de Crystal Castles , nous offre son tout dernier remix pour le morceau Sick Muse , extrait de l'album Fantasy du groupe canadien Metric . Une version electro qui nous envoute dès les premières secondes avec le choix pour le producteur de conserver la magnifique voix de Emily Haines , décision que l'on valide sans hésitation.
Not so long ago we've featured Alex Zelenka's remix of Angus & Julia Stone’s “Big Jet Plane” (...listen/download...) and it got so much attention for a Sunday track! Not surprising at all, if you listen to it. This time the NYC-based producer is back with his redemption of Metric's modern classic "Sick Muse" taken from [...]
The only theme we have for this mix is that its heavy on the progressive house theme. Since this is a variance from the usual indie rock we cater so heavily towards, this list is no exception in terms of remixes which we tout frequently on MUF. In our eyes, this list is not meant to match our Best Remixes You've Ever Heard series. Rather its meant for ear candy only to quickly glaze over our past week of discoveries and tracks that have been remixed, rewound and sent in our direction. We're sure you'll find at [...]
Marc Pannozzo It's true that Crystal Castles had to push the release of their third album (III) back a week from this past Tuesday to next, but they only barely needed the extra time. The record went up as an advance stream earlier this week at MuchMusic , offering further evidence that the Toronto duo of Alice Glass and Ethan Kath have come a long way since the glitchy, more spectacle than songcraft hype of their 2008 self-titled debut . (III) is still built on bent beats, shrieked [...]

Here's another one of the great photographers that will be displaying and selling their photography at Photo Pop 2012 this Friday at Red 7. If you're lucky, Rick might give you the sexy photo of me stuffing my face with a cupcake backstage at ACL. His photo to the left is from a GWAR shoot, and you can also read on to find out why he's mad I called Emily Haines to just chat. Here's Rick. ATH: What started your career as a music photographer?

Glaswegian four-piece Verse Metrics bring you the free download single 'Aches'. In August 2012 the band recorded 5 new tracks with engineer Jamie Savage at Chem19 studios.

Viernes 12 de octubre de 2012, parte 1 de 3. Austin City Limits 2012. Antes que relatarles esta experiencia, es importante recalcar que nuestra experiencia en conciertos y festivales se remitía solamente a México y nada más, así que el hecho de haber asistido a este festival ha sido nuevo, revolucionario, y muy emotivo para [...]
We battled the elements. We battled our livers. We battled the battles. Really happy I had a legit excuse to not watch the Longhorns. Yech. Rain was in the forecast. The poncho that had been neatly folded in factory specifications previously dormant in my camera bag for three festivals was going to be called into duty. Two heavy bursts occurred, before and after the Shins. I was able to keep relatively dry as the revelers drank in the rain. People that weren't there asked me yesterday how muddy I got. Apparently, the news sensationalized the few real mud [...]
Watch new video covers of David Bowie, Linkin Park, The Mars Volta, Willie Nelson, the Chemical Brothers, and Gotye (not the song you think).
El grupo sueco, Peter Bjorn & John , grabó I Wish I Was A Spy para el programa infantil Yo Gabba Gabba! que se transmite por Nick Jr. Aunque dura solo dos minutos tiene todos los elementos característicos de la banda que lo convierten en un tema muy amigable para los niños: la singular voz de serpentina de Peter Morén , riffs estilo James Bond [...]
From eating expired power bars from the 99 cents store to playing The Greek Theatre. It took about 10 years, but Metric finally made it. Talented frontwoman Emily Haines thanked the people that helped out in the human ways, not just the business ways. "This is rock-n-roll for fuck's sake." Before the last song with the amazing guitarist James Shaw, Haines let the crowd know about the evening - "It's kind of something we created together. It's ours."

Emily and company brought it to Los Angeles in a big way!
