I first heard Canadian dream pop indie band Young Galaxy via Henning Fürst's remix of "Queen Drum" from the album "Invisible Republic" from 2009. Because of Mr Fürst being on my best of list for 2010 with his remix of Yeasayer's "Madder Red" I looked for more remixes by him and found Young Galaxy.

In their dream pop sound I hear Tracey Thorn, Fleetwood Mac, Röyksopp, Lake Heartbeat, Slowdive, Annie, Jefferson Airplane and many more. Amazing sound with a incredible voice of Catherine McCandless.
When I then heard their new album "Shapeshifting" now in February released via Paper Bag Records I was absolutely amazed. It's one totally fantastic album produced by our Swedish master producer Dan Lissvik of Studio. An album, so solid and perfect within every angle. I could already say right now that this album will be on my best of 2011 album list, for sure. It's not a bad track on it but yet there are some tracks that sticks out even more. Here are my favourite one's from "Shapeshifting" and here you can buy the whole album to get as excited as me:
Young Galaxy - Blown Minded
Young Galaxy - We Have Everything
Young Galaxy - Peripheral Visionaries
Also on of my favourite one's is "Cover Your Tracks" that was released last week as an totally free EP along with remixes of Freedom Or Death, CFCF and Teen Daze.
