I spent part of the afternoon messing around with Purity Ring 's 'Obedear' - here's the outcome.
Free remix of Purity Ring's "Obedear" anyone? Yeah, I thought so. The latest installment of what I'm sure will be a slew of other remixes of the track comes from an upcoming producer by the name of Beauchamp.
On September 25th, Rhode Island noise-rock duo Lightning Bolt will release a rarities collection entitled Oblivion Hunter via Load Records. The seven-track effort collects "lost" cuts recorded in 2008 and will be available digitally and on 123 vinyl. The five-minute opener "King Candy" is pure, overwhelming dissonance, manically combining heavy drums, distorted vocals, and heaps of fuzz that detonate with the power of a noise-rock A-bomb. In support of the effort, the band will be on the road throughout the fall, starting tonight [...]

If you’re a regular reader here on Thoughts on Tracks, you know my love for Purity Ring . And if you aren’t a regular reader here on our fun little blog, well then, I’ll just be honest and say you probably should be. In any case, if you’re within a short car ride, megabus trip, riverboat or even walking distance to Cincinnati then you need to get yourself here this Saturday night for when Purity Ring blows the lid off Mayday in the eclectic Northside neighborhood. Having gotten the opportunity to scope them in person earlier this [...]

Norman Wong/Jules Schill It's a real puzzle to me why Toronto's Snowblink aren't huge, and I mean huge in relative Canadian indie terms, not absolute household name terms, I'm not delusional. Their 2011 debut Long Live was an unqualified art-folk jewel , as simple and homespun as it was rich and complex, and not content to simply let the record speak for itself, they also toured it across North America and Europe, supporting not only some A-list Canadian talent but Wilco's Jeff Tweedy on his Spring 2011 solo tour. [...]
If 2Pac had lived long enough to necessitate a career reinvention in this age of populist rap music, I wonder which musical direction he would have taken? Chip Ivory, aka Ryan Driscoll, gives us a window into that parallel universe with this left field mash up of the rapper's seminal hit 'Dear Momma' with electronic duo Purity Ring's 'Obedear'.
Por Tomás Fernández Fiks Si viniera algún desentendido de otra época y nos pidiera un ejemplo de música en el año 2012 probablemente Shrines sería una buena elección. Lo primero que se siente al escuchar el disco debut de Purity Ring es cuán actual es; como si en ese compilado de once canciones se encontrara un resumen estético de, por lo menos, una parte importante de la música indie del presente que se podría rotular de forma muy abarcativa bajo la denominación “electro pop”. [...]

Zuzana Hudackova It's shaping up to be an Autumn of Can-rock double bills high on value. Folks thought that it was a pretty impressive pairing of talent when it was announced last month that Dan Mangan and The Rural Alberta Advantage were teaming up to cross the country in October, or the June announcement that Metric and Stars were hitting the country's arenas together, but that were just the first of a number of impressive double-bills looking to share driving duties across Canada this Fall.

We get sent a lot of music. All bloggers do. Most of it is utter rubbish, or entirely inappropriate for our tastes, but on the odd occasion something aligns perfectly with our quality controls and it gets on The Recommender. The majority of those that get on are of a very high standard, but, even though we have loved their music enough to enter them upon this blog's picky pages, not every artist is entirely resetting the bar. After all, just hitting the high standards is enough to get us excited, but every now and again we discover an artist [...]

Here is this week's music singles chart for the week ending August 12 - 18. It is still a few weeks left before summer is going to end. This week's #1 single goes to UK's The xx. Looks like there is high anticipation when Coexist drops on September 11, 2012. I prefer Chained more than Angels. There are four new debuts from Jens Lekman and Wild Nothing. Check it out!
