Petit MEG deviendra grand

Posted by Gabby / August 12, 2013

20130812_MEG1.jpgIl était une fois un petit festival de musique électro à Montréal, qui s'appelait le MEG (pour Montreal Electro Groove). Fondé en 1999 par Jacques Primeau et Mustapha Terki, ce festival depuis a reçu la royauté des artistes électro, pop, rock, folk, hip-hop et toutes les déclinaisons possibles et imaginables que le mélange de ces genres pourrait engendrer, de MIA à Justice. Cette année, le festival a fêté ses 15 ans en grande pompe avec une belle brochette de musique qui a éclairé la ville pendant plus d'une semaine, du 25 juillet au 3 août. Petit retour sur du gros fun.

The Midnight Poutine Podcast -June 27-July 3, 2013

Posted by Gabby / June 27, 2013

20130627_podcastpic.jpgIt's been a gray, depressing, stormy and humid week, with some rare bouts of sunshine - not exactly the best kind of weather to be enjoying Montreal and summer in general, but we can handle it... on the one condition that it stops soon, because Francofolies might be over, but Jazz Fest is taking over Place des Festivals, and the festival wheel just keeps on turnin'. Thank goodness we have Emily Hill here with us this week to help us deal with everything. Ready?

The Midnight Poutine Podcast - June 5-11, 2013

Posted by Gabby / June 5, 2013

20130605_podcastpic.jpgWe're just one podcast away from our 300th, and we're a bit giddy. We've finally got some big plans to announce, and not just that. This week we had the honour of being photographed and interviewed by the Gazette's finest. With a huge lens staring us right in our face, we talk about the end of Mutek, the beginning of Fringe, and just about anything else under the weather, which is still acting up. Go home Mother Nature, you're drunk. In the meantime, we'll have to make do, so here's some cheery early summer music and the promise of a great picnic in the park. See you there!

David Martel brings it home with a new EP

Posted by Gabby / May 30, 2013

20130530_davidmartel.jpgEver since the release in 2009 of his debut album I Hardly Knew Me, musician and songwriter David Martel has been captivating local and not-so-local music lovers with his beautifully crafted orchestral folk songs. Since then, he's taken a slightly rockier, more experimental turn, and with his brand new EP, Versus Us, he gives us a taste of his new sound. We had a lovely little chat with Mr. Martel himself about new friends, old friends, and the new material he'll be launching tomorrow at Breakglass Studios, where the EP was recorded.
