Austra’s new single, “Habitat”, is quickly becoming one of my favorite songs of the year.  They make dance music accessible to the kids that haven’t gotten comfortable in the deep end of the dance party pool.  Austra coaxes those rhythmically-challenged kids to dip their toes in…then the knees…then to the waist…

At the 1:15 mark, “Habitat” breaks out into a mesmerizing trance beat, luring those unsuspecting indie kids out of the pool and into the dark forest, beckoned by Katie Stelmanis’ soul-piercing howl.  “I want you, brother…I need you, brother”, she says.  Those kids won’t make it out alive.

Hey Canucks, Paper Bag Records has copies in your neck of the woods HERE.
