, AKA electronic artist Katie Stelmanis, released her stunning album Future Politics
earlier this year, so in honor of that, we're throwing it back to our electrifying concert with her and her band a few years back at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel.
When watching her perform songs like "Home," "Hurt Me Now," and "Painful Like," I'm a bit stunned. Her voice sounds exactly the same - almost completely stripped of flaws. I caught Austra at Warsaw in Brooklyn earlier this month and the thing that amazed me the most was her voice. It was so pure, so untethered. To know that it is basically something she has always had is crazy, and we'll never stop loving it.
