As mentioned before, Young Prisms play tonight (3/5) at Glasslands with Austin's Boy Friend. The San Francisco band's second album, In Between, is out at the end of the month and we've got the premiere of Violens' remix of the album's lead track, "Floating in Blue." Violens took the very shoegazy original and kind of turned it into a late-80s New Order track. You can compare and contrast -- both versions are downloadable above.
Speaking of Violens, they just signed to Slumberland who will release their new album True on May 15. If you followed their monthly digital single releases last year, you may recognize a few of the songs on True. One of the new ones on the album, "Unfolding Black Wings," is downloadable at the top of this post.
