Megan Washington – Begin Again (Jasper Leak Remix)

beingagainmeganwashington

Award winning artist and one of Australia’s hugest musical darling, Megan Washington, has released a brilliantly minimal remix of her single ‘Begin Again’ taken from the 2014 sophomore album There There.

Collaborating with producer, Jasper Leak, (SIA, Tegan & Sara) the mix almost sounds a little hollow, sort of drowning out Washington’s hugely powerful vocals in a mix of whitewashed synth that can sometimes make the track sound a bit slurred. Despite this, it’s a largely successful remix that navigates the song through a soundscape of hauntingly sinister beats and samples and adds a curious new element to an inspiring ballad that fans know and love.

Megan Washington has just been announced on the prestigious 2015 Splendour In The Grass Festival Line-up in Byron Bay, Australia and will perform alongside Blur, Florence And The Machine, Tame Impala and many more.

Purity Ring – Begin Again

purityring

Now this is Purity Ring at their fucking greatest. “Begin Again” is the first time in recent memory I have heard the Canadian darlings put together a tune that actually sounds like it has some sort of pop-like structure. I mean, they received huge popularity off the format they had before, but this is a change for the duo that is hugely welcome. The track is classic Purity Ring with angelic, sweet and fragile vocals and huge apocalyptic synth, drum and bass.

The Canadians announced earlier last month their upcoming album Another Eternity which will be out on March 3rd via 4AD. They have also announced a world tour that will reach all sorts of places around Europe and America. Australia hasn’t yet been announced but fingers are crossed over here that we’ll get to see them again.
