Dystimulation

Music and other modern musings

Dear Australia, I Love you.

I would really like to know what it is about Australia that inspires so many great acts, Cut Copy, PNAU, Empire of the Sun, Kylie Minogue, The Galvatrons, Ladyhawke(though she is from New Zealand but I am sure she shares similar ‘down under’ influences) and today’s post, Bag Raiders. Perhaps its the mega amounts of sun they receive, their proximity to Asia, or maybe their isolation (geographically) from the rest of the world – I am note sure. What I do know is that somehow the world down under keeps producing some pretty novel sounds.

Bag Raiders have a pretty solid sound – somewhere between Justice and Miami Horror, but its their remixing abilities that I give them the most praise for.

The originals:
Bag Raiders – Shooting Stars

And their best remixes:
Cut Copy – Far Away (Bag Raiders Rmx)
The Galvatrons – When we were kids (Bag Raiders Rmx)
