Austra – “Home (Ital’s Immersion Mix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

Austra and Ital are both feel-good stories about the nice things that can happen when punks pick up computers. Austra’s frontwoman Katie Stelmanis was a shining light of Toronto’s art-punk scene for years before she put together her icy electro-goth group, and Daniel Martin-McCormick spent time in the great percussive skree bands Black Eyes and Mi Ami before he began making stripped-back, conceptual dance music as Ital. And now Ital has put together an itchy, skeletal eight-minute remix of “Home,” the throbbing first single from Austra’s new album Olympia. Below, listen to that remix, as well as another from Detroit techno legend Kevin Saunderson, and check out Austra’s upcoming tour dates.

Both remixes come from a 12″ version of “Home,” limited to 500 copies and coming this summer from Domino/Paper Bag. Here’s the tracklist.
