Top-20 countdown - no.17

Austra - Feel It Break

Canada keeps churning out so much good music that I am starting to think the northernmost countries must have something in their water that influences their musicians so much. Austra has the wonderful Katie Stelmanis as a singer and main driving force, an incredible voice that transforms their music and makes it instantly identifiable. A d├ębut album that has half its songs as potential singles is, for me, quite a formidable achievement. The music is strong, spare, electronic, addictive. 

So far:
18. Soley - We Sink
19. Cat's Eyes - Cat's Eyes
20. St. Vincent - Strange Mercy
