    Escaping/Festivaling 

    Sailing To Nowhere – Broken Bells

    Right now I wish I could be… sailing to nowhere would be the most elegant solution to my situation. A great escape into the wild. My choice isn’t too far from this though. Leaving for a few days to the Canadian countryside, relaxing in a roundhouse cabin on the Lac Saint-Jean will make everything better, I know it.

    Another great thing will be waiting for me when I come back : Osheaga Festival (tickets still available BTW). Planning on going alone for a second year, music will be my only friend (eeeeemo). So many incredible bands that I discovered through this blog will be attending this year’s festival and I have the strong feeling that it will be epic.

    Beach House was the band that I wanted to see live at the very start. Their style reminded me of the old bands of the 60s with their dreamy music. Psychedelicious shiiiite :) Since I’ve always dreamt of being at the ’69 Woodstock Fest, this was the closest I could get for the moment …still very, VERY, freaking far… :(

    Zebra – Beach House

    But then I went DEEPER into the band list and found out about… The Morning Benders (GOD YES), The Black Keys, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros (:D), The National (ZOMG), Horse Feathers, Major Lazer (their last show in Montreal was insane), Snoop Dogg (never saw him live), We Are Wolves, Metric, Pawa Up First

    Now would be the time to post the biggest mashup of all those bands but I WON’T… because it would sound like shit :) Soooo I will just tell all you guys from Montreal and around to BUY SOME TICKETS FOR THIS AWESOME FESTIVAL ! Seriously, live music in the warmth of summer is such a wonderful experience. And it’s a good way of MAYBE meeting some bands (we never know what surprise life has in its pockets for YOU). It’s also a great way of discovering some new bands !

    So, I’ll see you guys there :)

    This Week is LIVE – Upcoming Shows 

    Hey guys !

    Since we are receiving loads of emails and…well… have a life, we are sometimes late on the answers. Sorry for all of those who didn’t get any.

    Now, we have received an email recently about the next shows in Montreal and this week is gonna be pretty awesome.

    Wednesday, July 21st : Groove Attic and La Strada @ les 3 Minots – 8:30pm

    Groove Attic is a great funky band from Montreal. Their music is so groooooovaaayyyy they are worth a listen in my opinion. I’ve heard that they are pretty awesome live ;) They are playing with La Strada from Broooklyyyyn (damn right). La Strada has a very nice style. Check out their myspace if you don’t know them. I really love their music. “Drawing on Jungian archetypes, folk tales and Franco-Baltic harmonies, La Strada offers up the best of the New York indie scene: interesting music made by talented people who have a point of view and a love for what they do.”The Huffington Post

    Thursday, July 22nd : Five Alarm Funk and Bananafish with The Thanya, Emilie and Ali Band @ Divan Orange – 8:30pm

    My personal favorite this week. Five Alarm Funk is a band from Vancouver that has the best style ever. A funky kind of music that will make you dance your ass off. Give their myspace a listen because you will get blown away. They are playing with Bananafish, a local band that mixes instruments in a pretty awesome way. They have a jazzy/progressive style that has to be beautiful in concert. The last band is another local creation. The Tanya, Emilie and Ali Band have this soothing indie acoustic style that we all love. They will all be there at Divan Orange this Thursday. Check out the BookFace event.

    Friday, July 23rd : This Invention Matters and Royal Canoe @ 3 Minots – 8:30pm

    Last show of the week featuring another local band : This Invention Matters. An pop band that makes me think about the bands we used to listen to when we were younger. They will be playing live with a Winnipeg based band Royal Canoe. These guys have some awesome songs, check them out on myspace (link above). Another funky style that meets afro-beat to make a inspiring style.

    All of those shows are organized by Indie Montreal. Go to their site to have all the info you need about the upcoming shows. The tickets to the shows are all under 10$ so GO CHECK IT OUT !

    We will be getting some tickets for the other shows coming at the end of the month so get ready for a little ticket giveaway guys :)

    Here’s a little song for you guys who are waiting for Osheaga to come :)

    Inuit Wedding – Pawa Up First

    Dancedancedance 

    Une artiste polyvalente, remplie de talent, dotée d’une voix vraiment spéciale : Lykke Li

    Elle était au festival Osheaga en août dernier… Je ne la connaissais que très peu et j’ai sacrifié son show pour pouvoir voir The Roots (loin d’être décu, ils nous ont donné tout un spectacle) et pour pouvoir avoir une bonne place pour Coldplay. Depuis que j’ai son album, je regrette vraiment de ne pas avoir pu assister à son spectacle. C’est une danseuse de ballet, c’est une chanteuse hors-pair, une musicienne talentueuse. Certains reconnaîtrons peut-être sa chanson Dance, Dance, Dance puisqu’elle est passée dans une pub française :

    Donc, voici son premier album Youth Novel – Lykke Li

    ET, avant de vous quitter, un vidéo qui m’a mis un énorme sourire aux lèvres, le bonheur au coeur :)

      Découvert il y a bien longtemps, j’ai été séduit à la premier écoute par la suédoise. Elle a récemment travaillé sur la BO de Twilight, j’attends sa track “Possibility” avec impatience tout comme celle de Bon Iver.

      Du talent “fait de concentré” chez ce band et cette chanteuse. J’ai bien hâte aussi de voir ce qu’ils nous réservent…

      ah c’est pour ca qu’elle est connu en France? plus d’un an que son cd est sorti et j’lentend a carrouf jme dit “tiens Lykke Li passe ici”? tu m’etonnes faut une pub ou que Ladyhawke soit le générique d’une serie pourri pour que ca passe… ridicule!

      Bref cet album est et restera une petite merveille, cette fille est magique, en live surtout ses chansons donnent tellement différent!
