'DFA Boat Party Presents Canyons'
As Canyons, Aussies Leo Holiday and Ryan Sea-mist know how to make asses quake on both hemispheres. With an acid-splashed house sound that is by turns both scoured and sleek, they're about to drop their debut single on DFA, with a follow-up full length expected on Modular (which, you'll recall, was basically the trajectory of their countrymen Cut Copy). They're climbing on the People Don't Dance No More party boat with fellow pretty gritty boys from the DFA Jacques Renault and Justin Miller, along with resident DJs Robert Blair and David Bruno. Boat departs at midnight from Skyport Marina.
