New Music: Young Galaxy

Hotly tipped Canadian trio, Young Galaxy, have toured with Arcade Fire, been nominated for a Polaris Prize (the Canadian Mercury Prize), dominated the music blogosphere – number 1 on Hype Machine – and now release their third album‘Shapeshifting’ on May 23rd (in the UK) through Smalltown Supersound, the label that brought you Annie and Lindstrom.

Young Galaxy completed ‘Shapeshifting’ at home and then sent it away, across the ocean, to one of the world’s most acclaimed and secretive producers. For nine months, Dan Lissvik, half of the Swedish duo Studio, curved and refashioned these tracks; he made and remade them.

In October 2010, Lissvik sat down at his computer in Gothenburg. Stephen Ramsayand Catherine McCandless (of Young Galaxy) sat down at theirs in Montreal. And across 3,500 miles, Skype-ing with a friend they have never met, Young Galaxy heard their third album for the first time. Check out here.
