Intrepid Keepers of the Dream Canyons are heading to the US for a brief run of DJ dates at the end of this month. New York, Philly and Palm Springs are the lucky hosts to their jungle-infused sunshine-making beats, full dates and information below.
To be taken in over three huge screens accompanied by a 5-piece live band, the work is entitled '100 Million Nights' and is a sight and sound to behold.
'Tonight', from Canyons 2011 release 'Keep Your Dreams', is given a kaleidoscopic visual treatment from drug rug dreamteam Chromosphere (Yoshi Sodeoka & Sabrina Ratté. Keep Your Dreams is out now and available from ModShop / iTunes / JB Hifi.
If you're itching for a live fixin' of the Canyons lads, they'll be playing October 19th as part of Modular's Friday takeovers at the Beach Road Hotel in Bondi during October. More tour dates below.
It's always nice when we can get a couple Modular label mates to collaborate and for you, in turn, to be able to listen. So here, we proudly present Tame Impala's 'Elephant', as remixed by Canyons. It's yours for free.
'Elephant' is taken from Tame Impala's highly anticipated new album 'Lonerism', out Oct 5th (AUS) / Oct 8th (UK/EU) / Oct 9th (USA).
We are very happy to both announce and present a 'Month of Fridays' down at the Beach Road Hotel in Bondi during October. It will be free entry from 8pm to 12am every week and guaranteed good times.

We held an intimate dinner catered by the awesome Longrain at the Modular headquarters for friends and family in town for the Vivid festival. Guests included Kindness, Tom Vek, Nick and Brian from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs', Van She, Canyons, Beni, as well as friends Money Mark from the Beastie Boys, Sam Spiegel, Lover and Ksubi.
Directed by the same people behind some of your favourite clips from M83, Bag Raiders and Sebastien Tellier, Fleur & Manu. It's a kaleidoscope of friends, lovers, sunshine and memories.
We love a good sale but what we love even more is those treasures you find. The rare items that make you squeal. That limited pressing that gives you goosebumps.
To celebrate that feeling and record stores everywhere, the ModShop is proud to present a selection of super limited test pressings of some of our big releases of the last couple years.
Record Store Day is this coming Saturday April 21.
Canyons' story is one of intrigue and mystery, one that can be traced back to the Nether Valley in the outer regions of the Western Australian landscape. Ryan Grieve and Leo Thomson began making music separately, under various guises, before coming together as Canyons.
