Following a pair of celebrated US tours this past fall, Jagwar Ma are back today to share Cut Copy's remix of "Uncertainty," a standout from their 2013 debut LP Howlin, as they launch another run of US tour dates. The track is from their new Uncertainty Remixes EP that features Ewan Pearson, MssingNo and Charles Murdoch's take on the track, in addition to Cut Copy's, which is now available.
For this year's Record Store Day, Jagwar Ma have announced a split release with Temples. The limited edition 12-inch see a remix swap between the two acts, and will be available in the UK from April 19th via Heavenly Recordings. Remember, these two bands might just be the reason that Oasis never reforms, as Noah Gallagher once stated that every time he meets with his former bandmates, they are "too busy talking about fucking Temples and Jagwar Ma".

About Jagwar Ma:
Jagwar Ma formed in Sydney Australia when Jono Ma and Gabriel Winterfield bonded over a mutual passion of melody and experimental beats. The pair set out creating a sound that would capture their love for contemporary electronica and classic American Soul, Joe Meek and King Tubby, vintage drum machines and radio frequency manipulation, improvised percussion. Fusing the elements of disparate music, the vocal sweetness of Laurel Canyon, Carl Wilson and Bruce Johnston, and the modern electronic space of the past 40 years, they created a contemporary take on psychedelia, with the beauty and simplicity of classic sun-soaked, beach pop.
In mid 2012 Jagwar Ma decamped to a space in France to record their debut album - just the two of them in an empty farm two hours south of Paris, with an 808, a Fender Jaguar, a laptop and a pair of vintage Neve console channels. Their time at La Briche echoes like a strange psychedelic film: cycling in fields of sunflowers, cheese, caveman beards and going crazy in the studio. While working they listened to twisted electronica from Liars, Aphex Twin and Autechre. "And then when we sat down to dinner we'd listen to Sinatra and Nat King Cole" says Gab. Added to that were the neighbours who were into hardcore dub..."They were from a scene which is based around homemade soundsystems," says Jono, "they take them out in to the middle of nowhere and play literally the
hardest most sinister kind of music I've ever experienced. It is the weirdest thing in the world."

Jagwar Ma were on a mission to re-create a two man wall of sound ensued and with help from friends, locals and a pre-historic desk once used by Conny Plank, they set about re-inventing the warmth, harmony and audio sunshine they had first hatched back in Oz. Their collaborators along the way included long-time friend Warpaint drummer, Stella Mozgawa and renowned DJ and producer, Ewan Pearson on mixing duties. By the dying days of 2012 their time in France had not been ill spent and a debut album Howlin was recorded and ready to be mixed in Berlin & London before being released in 2013. With the album release and subsequent touring they continue to build a passionate live following around the world.
