The best "Reckoner" remix

Nosaj Thing is hitting up Fortune Sound Club this Tuesday. I'm more than excited for this show. I've heard many of Nosaj Thing's remixes and even though they're slow for the most part, they're put together wonderfully and bring me back to reality.

Sneak peak: you won't regret listening to this if you like Radiohead and remixing. Best "Reckoner" remix I've heard so far.

La Roux coming back to Vancouver

Thanks to a dear friend of mine, I now know that La Roux is coming back to Vancouver on April 18! I'm so happy that she is playing at a better venue this time around (the Commodore Ballroom). As many of you know, I'm not a big fan of the Biltmore's structure, which is where she played last time she came to Vancouver. Since this last concert, her musical reputation has grown exponentially so I would suggest getting tickets as soon as possible.

Here's a remix by Le Castle Vania to hold you, and myself, off until the show.

Up-and-coming Fan Death

Fan Death is a modernized disco/electro female duo from Vancouver (holla!). I remember seeing them for the first time at the Biltmore opening for Metronomy last year. That concert was a gong show. I had a hard time paying attention to the music so Fan Death didn't resonate with me as they did later on. Note: this concert was so nutso, most of what I remember is the lead singer of Fan Death, Dandi Wind, crowd surfing and basically walking on the ceiling while being carried by the crowd, which I admit was pretty cool. I saw them again headlining their own show at the Bourbon. This one was great and I really wanted to purchase a CD after but they didn't have any produced yet. Fan Death has three videos but no CD yet. However, they do have an EP called A Coin For The Well that I should get my hands on soon. The band is now signed to Pharmacy Recording Company, which is apparently a division of Universal.

At the moment, they are touring with Vampire Weekend in Europe and the UK; many of these shows are sold out. A couple of weeks ago, I saw that they would be back in North America touring with Little Boots. But unfortunately, it looks like that's been deleted now. Maybe it'll come back?

I'm pretty excited that they're going to appear on the cover of the next issue of ION magazine. My favourite Vancouver band on my favourite Vancouver magazine, yes!

Check out Fan Death's video for "Cannibal" below! This is probably my favourite video out of all three.
