You could say we've been psyched to hear Austra's new record Olympia since we saw the band play some of it at SXSW, but in fact, we've been psyched for Olympia since we first heard "Home," the record's lead single. Actually, you know what, we've been excited for more music from Austra since the first time we listened to them - the six-piece make some of the most beautiful, spine-tingling, and brilliantly inspired electronic music out there. Thanks to NPR, you can now stream Olympia a week in advance of its release date, and it's lovely - Katie Stelmanis's voice is truly sublime, soaring over her band's masterful infusions of classic house and techno with something all their own. Check it out - physical copies are out June 18.
