Song of the week: Young Galaxy, “Cover Your Tracks”
Categories: anna, mp3, young galaxy

Recently discovered this beautiful new song from the Montreal-based Young Galaxy, who have toured and worked with another of my favorite bands, The Besnard Lakes. While Young Galaxy’s past work has more of a slow-droning guitar-based vibe a la the Besnards, this track represents a different direction, combining a dual vocals and a chanting chorus with tropical drums reminiscent of jj or the Knife’s “Heartbeats.” Super, super pretty. The band’s new effort, Shapeshifting, comes out in spring 2011 on Paper Bag Records.
