ABRA ANNOUNCES NEW UK/EUROPE TOUR DATES + IGLOOGHOST REMIX

From the True Panther Sounds corner, we have some news for you this morning. ABRA will be heading back to UK & Europe (including Pitchfork Paris) in October on the heels of the release of her new EP entitled PRINCESS. If you have not been enjoying it in full these last few minutes of summer, then what have you been doing?

In light of this announcement, Brainfeeder producer IGLOOGHOST has remixed "CRYBABY" for your listening pleasure. Quote from said producer below:

“THE ORIGINAL CRYBABY WAS PACKED FULL OF SOOO MANY MOMENTS THAT WERE SO NUTS TO ME SO I WAS RLLY EXCITED TO TRY & DO MY OWN LIL SPIN ON IT. MY REGULAR SOLO IGLOOGHOST STUFF IS USUALLY SUPER SATURATED & I GUESS THERE'S AN EMPHASIS ON FITTING AS MANY SOUNDS IN AS I CAN - BUT FOR THIS ABRA THINGY I RLLY WANTED TO DO SOMETHING REALLY RESTRAINED & MORE BASED ON SPEEDY LIL RECURRING SIMPLE MELODIES/MOTIFS. IN MY HEAD, IT SOUNDS LIKE A LITTLE WATER SPIRIT GIRL CRYING IN A ZEN GARDEN. ಢ︵ಢ"

THUMP premiered the remix and had said it added "futurist sheen" to the track. Stream here: http://smarturl.it/ABRA_Crybaby
