    The new single from AU.

    Luke Wyland and Dana Valatka, the Portland, Oregon-based duo known as AU, embody remarkable, frantic energy. On the verge of the release of their third album, out Spring 2012 on Hometapes (and on The Leaf Label in Europe), AU is making their first reveal in the shape of a limited edition 7" record. Fortifying Valatka's adrenalized percussion and Wyland's soaring vocals and multi-tentacled performance on keys and guitar, is man-machine Colin Stetson on alto and whopping bass saxophone (most recently seen on stage with Bon Iver). The B-side, a song woven by Wyland himself from a reinterpretation of the album's lead track, takes Stetson's wild wind a notch higher and into the brightly lit stratosphere.
