DOWNLOAD: Hundred Waters - "Thistle" (TOKiMONSTA Remix) (MP3)
After recently finishing up the Full Flex Express Tour with Skrillex, Diplo, Grimes, and others, art pop group Hundred Waters announced that they signed to Skrillex's label, OWSLA, and that their first release for the label will be the Thistle EP (due out 8/21). The EP features remixes of the track "Thistle" from their excellent self titled debut LP by Araabmuzik, Star Slinger, TOKiMONSTA, Lockah, Different Sleep, and Troublemaker. Our first taste of that EP comes today (via P4K) with a remix of the track by TOKiMONSTA (who was also on the Full Flex Express Tour). It's a great listen and hearing how natural Hundred Waters sounds with screwed vocals and heavy beats makes it a little less wtf that they signed to Skrillex's label. You can download the remix above and check out a trailer for the EP below. If you haven't heard their LP yet, you can stream it in full below.
Since we last spoke, Moon Diagrams (aka Deerhunter drummer Moses Archuleta) was added to that Bowery Ballroom show too. Moon Diagrams will also be supporting a number of dates on Ariel Pink's upcoming tour, but not the NYC show at Webster Hall (9/14) with Bodyguard and TEEN (tickets).
A list of all Moon Diagrams dates and the Hundred Waters stream and video are below.
