On Wednesday October 3, Lee Fields and his band The Expressions will be stopping by Montreal's Cabaret Mile-End as part of a world tour promoting their latest record Faithful Man.
Brasstronaut, the great six piece indie band from Vancouver who got on the Polaris long-list in 2010 with their first album, are back in Montreal this Friday June 22 at Divan Orange. Last month, they released their second LP on Unfamiliar Records titled Mean Sun. The album is a perfect summer morning playlist and these guys are rumored to put on a great live performance. If this ain't reason enough to go to the show, openeing acts Útidúr, a ten piece band from Iceland, and Sweet Mother Logic who have their lil buzz going on and should be worth checking out as well.
Calling all electro-pop enthusiasts!
Midnight Poutine is giving away a few tickets to see the Class Actress & Penguin Prison show at Cabaret Mile-End this Friday, June 8th.
This show will be the last date of a co-headlining tour both artists started last month.
Era ExtraÃ±a, Neon Indian's second LP, came out last month and it is pure electro-pop bliss! Following an unexpected 4-track EP collaboration with The Flaming Lips out last spring, Alan Palomo (better know as Neon Indian) finally released a sequel to the amazing 2009 Psychic Chasms. Supporting the new album, Palomo and his musicians are touring North American alongside amazing synth artist Com Truise from New Jersey, and the intriguing up-and-coming band from Edmonton, Purity Ring.
Sam Beam, better know as Iron & Wine, has been establishing himself as an one of the most talented folk artist of his generation. It all started with his first album released in 2002 on Sub Pop, followed by two other LPs, several contributions to soundtracks (a Postal Service cover of Such Great Heights for the Garden State movie, notably), EPs / B-sides compilations and live albums. This past January, Beam moved on to Warner Music and released his forth LP, Kiss Each Other Clean. This last effort was well received critically as it is the next logical step for Iron & Wine songs, tinted by pop and 70s influences with bolder layers of sound.
