Montreal-based dream-pop quartet [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Young Galaxy[/lastfm] tries something new on its forthcoming album Shapeshifting (out in Feb 2011) by enlisting [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Dan Lissvik[/lastfm] of the Swedish nu-disco duo [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Studio[/lastfm] to produce. Unlike anything the band has done before (they're more known for their brand of dramatic art-rock), the group has released a free MP3 of "Peripheral Visionaries," an intimate, slow disco number with sweet vocals that groove but won't blast you out of your socks.  Free MP3, plus details on the new album Citing [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]New Order[/lastfm],[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Knife[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Eurythmics [/lastfm] as influences for the new sound, the “Peripheral Visionaries” will appeal to those looking for that same sort of theme--one that's sexy with lots of synths and bass, creating a more dance-rock vibe. Before you download the new single, check out one of my personal favorite remixes from Dan Lissvik transforming the eerie sounds of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Fever Ray[/lastfm]'s "When I Grow Up." It's a good one! [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5MbZEyHy0iM&fs=1&hl=en_US] Tracklisting: 1. "Nth" 2. "The Angels Are Surely Weeping" 3. "Blown Minded" 4. "We Have Everything" 5.
