DOWNLOAD: Tycho - "Dive" (Keep Shelly in Athens Remix) (MP3)
Tycho (aka Scott Hansen) released the very solid Dive LP last year and has been touring in support of it. On April 3, he'll release a 12" single for the album's title track which includes remixes of the song by Memoryhouse and Keep Shelly in Athens. KSiA's remix, which you can download above or stream below, replaces the song's late night highway driving feel with a skittering beat similar to their work on "Campus Martius."
Tycho is currently finishing up a tour in Europe but he'll make his way back over to North America for SXSW, where he's currently got 4 shows scheduled (though more be announced). He'll play a Terrorbird/Force Field party on March 14 at Red 7, an IODA party at Red Eyed Fly on 3/14 with The Wedding Present, Thee Oh Sees, Polica, and others, and the Ghostly International Official Showcase at Club Deville on 3/14 with Matthew Dear, Mux Mool, Shigeto, Com Truise, and Choir of Young Believers (that's three shows in one day if you're following along), and a FILTER party at Clive Bar on 3/16 with Grimes, YACHT, New Build, and MNDR. You can view those dates in list format below.

KSiA in Chicago in November (more by Ben Rodig)
Their most recent offering is the Campus Martius EP that came out earlier this month, which I wrote about on BrooklynVegan:
The material on Campus Martius is noticeably darker than the other tracks the duo released this year, which have generally sounded much breezier. The first original track is a slow burner called "The Chains," filled mostly by a muffled rhythm and Sarah P's drifting vocals, until thunderous snares and industrial synths take over at the song's end. While Sarah's vocals are increasingly becoming the focal point of the group, the EP's title track is largely instrumental (very Pet Sounds of them). The song's drum patterns are light, but by far the most spastic on the EP, and the only trace of vocals is in the form of some great pitch-shifted samples. The darker edge of this EP comes out the strongest on its closing track, "Struggle With Yourself," which utilizes the muddiest synths I've ever heard on a KSiA song.You can buy it at eMusic.
