Austra is one of those bands I feel like everyone should know, but surprisingly they don't. A few of you have written to me to say how much you liked that I had shared the lovely St. Vincent with you last month (you know you can leave comments, right?) so I thought perhaps it was time I share another favorite. Austra has been on my playlist all summer, and if you don't know them you're definitely missing out. Formed in Toronto in 2009, they have dark electronic sound that I generally always enjoy. Their music is definitely simpler and less light spirited than St.Vincent, but it definitely has an element of quirkiness that I appreciate. Here is one of their more recent videos and both of their full albums. Enjoy!
