“Spellwork” And “Woodstock” (Live On Open Bar) (Video)


    Austra’s Feel It Break is one of the unexpected highlights of 2011. Once you’ve adjusted to singer Katie Stelmanis’ unusually vocal range the record reveals plenty of fascinating goth-pop rhythms and outright nods toward the wider pop arena.  Here on Fader’s Open Bar feature she’s joined by her fellow vocalists in the band, who congregate at Veronica Peoples Club in Brooklyn to perform a couple of stripped down a cappella pieces, including a cover of Joni Mitchell’s “Woodstock” and their own “Spellwork.” The latter is particularly impressive in this format, especially when you hear that incredible warble in Stelmanis’ voice.
