DOWNLOAD: Eight And A Half - Scissors (Tokimonsta Remix)
Eight And A Half is a brand new band assembled from fractions of The Stills and Broken Social Scene. You've heard of those guys, yes you have, because they made some of the most magical music to emerge from Canada since Bryan Adams got his first real six-string, played it till his fingers bled, and then spent the next 30 years slowly bleeding to death. If the original version of "Scissors" is built differently from the indie-rock anthems Justin Peroff, Dave Hamelin and Liam O'Neill make in their other bands, then this remix from Tokimonsta pushes it even further into the (relative) electronic wilderness. Beats stagger and stack up on themselves, voices reach out of the cogs like crumpled cats. Pay your respects to dead kittens and bled-dry Canadian rock gods by buying this digitally today. A debut album from Eight And A Half will arrive early 2012.
