Finally, the British and Canadians made amends. After years of feuds the power of music has healed the open wound of colonialism's failures.
The industry has spoken and Four Tet is back on top with his marvelous seventh album There Is Love In You. Caribou's Swim is getting the same level of praise, which worried me that perhaps this electronica town ain't big enough for the both of them. I mean, there can only be one Highlander, right?
There will be no bloodshed. Kieran Hebdan does not see it in those terms, instead he gave his new single “Angel Echoes” up to Dan Staith to remix. “Angel Echoes” as an album opener is an invitation with its chopped looping vocals that introduce the album's title. The Caribou remix introduces a club warble and drum roll to move the echoes from your headphones to the booming system surrounding the dance floor. You can get the Caribou remix from Kieran's Soundcloud page or avoid the pesky web browsing and download it directly from us.
The Angel Echoes 12″ is out August on Domino Records. The digital pack will include extra remixes by Joy Orbison and others.</p>
