Young Galaxy release Falsework, tour (2016)

Last week, Montreal’s Young Galaxy released their excellent new album Falsework via Paper Bag Records. Today, they announce a run of dates in Canada and New York early next year.

Falsework is the follow-up to the Polaris Music Prize short-listed Ultramarine and their third album produced by Dan Lissvik (Studio, Atelje). Of the record, Stereogum have noted, “Young Galaxy may have a little problem on their hands: They’re just too consistently good! For their past few albums – and on their upcoming one, Falsework – the Montreal band trades in the same kind of spotless, slinking R&B, and they’re super good at what they do. ”
The winter of 2014/2015 took Young Galaxy from their studio in Montreal to Gothenburg and back. The band’s brilliant new full length Falsework completes the sound they have been mining on their past two albums Shapeshifting (2011) and Ultramarine (2013) with producer Dan Lissvik. The album is undeniably synth pop without the simplicity and was informed and inspired by 80’s electro, acid house and R&B music that was well ahead of its time. Falsework was made using machines from the past to sound like music from the future.
During the writing and recording of the Falsework, Young Galaxy and Paper Bag Records commissioned Scotiabank Giller Prize winning novelist/blogger/journalist
Sean Michaels to write a story that would work as a campaign piece to the album. Read the story here
