Au Palais - Tender Mercy
Addictive beats...check. Beautiful and haunting synth arrangements...check. Georgeous harmonies and vocals...check. Pretty much everything you need in a catchy tune is available from the brother and sister duo of Au Palais. Originally hailing from Toronto (fellow Canucks) and now calling London home, they are releasing a fantastic EP titled "Tender Mercy." Give it a listen, and then head on over here and pre-order yourself a copy. Don't take our word for it, Pitchfork files them under best new music. On a side note, supporting indie music is critical to keeping bands like this alive, and to quote Martha Stewart, that is a good thing. Seriously...you can spare five quid.
