The Report From The Alternate Side for June 19th

by Russ Borris

Every Wednesday afternoon around 3:45 with Dennis Elsas, find out the latest happenings on The Alternate Side.

Austra just released their new album yesterday and it's a huge step forward for the band.  Formed a few years ago in Toronto, Austra started out as the chief project for Katie Stelmanis.  However, on the new album Olympia, the songs are much more collaborative.  The band spent a lot of time on the road and that certainly has influenced the sound of the new album.  The result is more cohesive and bigger, and reflects a band that is evolving quickly.

See Austra at Music Hall of Williamsburg tomorrow night and check out something from the new album this afternoon on The Report From The Alternate Side around 3:45!
