Chris Garneau released ‘Winter Games,’ got remixed by Xiu Xiu (who is about to go on tour) — listen


Brooklyn’s Chris Garneau released the five-years-in-the-making Winter Games back in November and it’s a gorgeous, orchestral ode to the season we’re currently frozen in in NYC. You can stream the whole album on Rdio.

Meanwhile, Garneau has been giving out tracks to remix. We’ve got the premiere of “Oh God” as reworked by Xiu Xiu‘s Jamie Stewart. The original is the closest the album comes to straight-up pop but Stewart drags it through the digital mud while simultaneously making it much more dancefloor-friendly. You can stream that below.

No upcoming dates for Chris at the moment, but Xiu Xiu will soon head out on a big tour, which as previously mentioned, includes a NYC show at Knitting Factory. All dates are listed along with a new Xiu Xiu song too, below.

“Lawrence Liquors” is from Xiu Xiiu’s upcoming record, Angel Guts: Red Classroom , out via Polyvinyl on 2/4.
