Really excited for the new Canyons song and album coming out. Thanks Modular for the update. They're one of my favorite Australian acts today, making consistently solid disco and psychedelica for the people. They're even from Perth!
This of course has reminded me of their most quality lines of work to date, namely their remixing of pretty much every Tame Impala song, their label mates and buddies back in Perth. None of these reworks are the same in genre. It ranges from the delirium of 41 Mosquitoes to the poolside wonder of Solitude is Bliss, the disco stomp of Half Full Glass of Wine and the epic camel ride through the desert that is their Sundown Syndrome remix. However they all seem to embody this feeling of 40 degree heat and general psychadellica, a spirit which makes it true Australian music.
Its starting to heat up here in Perth, unseasonably early too. I'm fine with this, cause while I'm not fine with being back in Perth itself (no shots), it's a lot better when it is distinctively Perth. This means scorching 40 degree days, car rides with the window down and Triple J playing loud, parties, festivals and occasionally the beach. It's what I missed when I was away. Perth summers aren't for the faint of heart. But these songs will soundtrack it for you in style.
