A few weeks back we shared a new spin on The Car’s Moving In Stereo courtesy of devious Austin neo-new wavers, Candi & The Strangers, and I gotta admit, I’m really digging this band. Perhaps it has something to do with the way their music veers from Teutonic detachment to dreamy seduction in the bat of a heavily mascaraed eye. Maybe it’s the way the paper-thin snare sounds resonate in my cranium. More likely it has something to do with adolescent crushes on the genre’s original leading ladies, like Blondie, Terri Nunn and Dale Bozzio. That’s neither here nor there, and really, it’s nothing that ten years of intense therapy can’t solve.
Anyway, the band’s newest release, 10th Of Always, will be arriving on February 8th, and to get yer juices flowing, Candi & and her Strangers have been good enough to allow us to premiere a Skank Jones remix of another album track, Glide. Enjoy the tune, that’s yours to keep, and if you’re in Austin this Saturday night, there are certainly worse places to be than the band’s CD release soiree at ND.
