Listen: Canadian Electro-Trio Austra Covers “Woodstock”


This electronic re-imagining of the classic Joni Mitchell ’60s burner hit the Internet last week, courtesy of covers blog, Cover Me. The Canadian band just released their debut album, Feel It Break, on Domino, and put out a nice video for the synthy lead single, “Lose It.” At South By Southwest, Austra shook the room at Emo’s during the official Domino party. In their take on “Woodstock,” they let some watery synths and singer Katie Stelmanis get the tune started, before dropping a big dance beat around the one-minute mark.
