What We’ve Been Neglecting To Tell You

In Choice Cuts, Gigs, Montréal, Song Reviews, Worldwide on February 14, 2011 at 1:34 pm

Get ready.

I’ve been snowed-under (get it?) in work lately. Or at the very least, buried in what I should be doing. So with that being said my show-going/midday-procrastinating has been and will continue to be minimal for the rest of this week. However, don’t let this trick you into thinking there’s nothing good going on in Montreal these days.

Tonight Jan 30: HOW TO DRESS WELL & GRIMES @ Casa Del Popolo

In Celebrate Your Scene, Gigs, Montréal, Worldwide on January 30, 2011 at 8:00 am

How To Dress Well have been building a nice little following lately, with fans from all over the spectrum digging his brand of vaguely lo-fi R&B.

Most music that can be labelled as R&B, and has found it’s way into my ear-path, is smooth, featuring mostly cleaner production and the kind of voice a man like myself wouldn’t mind being able to claim as their own. This is different. Read the rest of this entry »

Partying All Tomorrow With Neutral Milk Hotel

In Gigs, New Jersey, Worldwide on January 26, 2011 at 2:02 am

I looked through all of their songs in my Itunes and couldn’t come up with a better pun or poor clever turn of phrase for the title then the one I put up, so, live with it. If it’s any consolation, Jeff fucking Mangum is making the rare trek down from the cave which he likely inhabits up on a quiet mountain somewhere to grace us with a performance, both in my home, the lovely Garden State. The most noted hipster recluse since J.D. Salinger is performing at All Tomorrow’s Parties in Asbury Park on September 30, a festival curated by a specific band-in this case, the renowned trip hop group Portishead. He will also be playing a show shortly after, also in Asbury Park.

THIS IS HUGE. This show is basically the-dream. As Steve mentioned in his review of their debut LP, Native Speaker, for which this show celebrates, Braids are our most tagged artist and truly one of my favorite bands. Their debut album is nearly perfect and their live show is an incredible experience, as we’ve certainly mentioned before.
