The Midnight Poutine Podcast - Oct. 10-24

Posted by Emily Hill / October 10, 2013

cocorosie.jpgWe're back, poutiners. It's a post-Pop recovery podcast where we load your plate with two weeks worth of tunes. Settle in as we discuss spamming Hugo Manuel, 80s slowdance jams, and smoking out with Ty Segall. Things get touchy when we contest band name punctuation (you're not off the hook, Godspeed). Plus, Greg and Amie coin new genres (hashtag kill-wave, hashtag disco-funk-tro). This kind of a big deal. Dibs, Pitchfork.

Happy turkey day, y'all!

MP_Technical KidmanFix.jpgPull up those bootstraps, poutiners! You've gone hard Wednesday and Thursday, and there is no time to slow down. Rally some weekend energy, because your Friday is stacked with Pop Montreal gems. In our third episode of the Pop Montreal podcast marathon, you'll find big names like The Dream (playing with MP sweetheart Mozart's Sister), and Local Natives (playing with shoegaze kings Wild Nothing). But it's the up-and-coming talent that will really blow your mind: Our favs Emilie & Ogden will be harp strummin' at their album launch at Le Belmont, and save some dance party energy for a late night with Technical Kidman at Kathy and Kimy.
We're getting punchy, listeners. And it's not over yet!

Passovah Preview: Why Noah Bick is Kind of a Big Deal

Posted by Emily Hill / July 24, 2013

Or seen him working at Blue Skies Turn Black shows. Who is this guy? And why do we get the feeling he's kind of a big deal?

Appendices2.pngÇa y est. Le festival Juste Pour Rire 2013 a commencé. Mettant en vedette des stars autant anglophones que francophones, le festival met les deux approches d'humour côte à côte. Forcement ça relève des comparisons et criques. Mais sont-elles justes?
