Animaux – Alaska (Cactus Channel Sp00ky Remix)

*Click the download button above and join the bands mailing list to get your copy*

To commemorate their double header show later this month with Animaux, The Cactus Channel have released a special online remix of Animaux’s ‘Alaska’. It’s not just any old remix though – none of that Ableton shit. The band got into their bungalow and recorded their own song underneath the ‘Alaska’ acapella, completely transforming the original into a spooky soul banger.

A ten piece band from Melbourne, Australia — all born in the 90s and raised on the internet, The Cactus Channel are consistently turning heads and shifting opinions about what it is to be an instrumental 10 piece band in the era of laptop producers and Kanye.

Animaux. They’re young, but rest assured, this is no ordinary teeny-bopper band. Sure, in this day and age of synth and autotune they have a bigger brass section than most bands, but that doesn’t mean they won’t get you up and moshing.

Alaska (Cactus Channel Sp00ky Remix) is only available online and will be performed live once only at The John Curtin Hotel on 29th August.

San Lazaro launch live video series

When Bob Knob isn’t cranking out some tasty tunes in the studio and isn’t suffocating under a pile of officework from me, he can be found bass in hand at the stern (or perhaps aft?) of San Lazaro.   The band has just launched their “Live At The Farm” series, capturing them playing live out in the country.  See what they’re all about below.

You can also listen to their EP Serendipity here, which is available on 12″ vinyl, CD and digitally. There’s even a free download. Go get it!
