It's Thursday, Let's Dance! - The Cansecos @ Sala Rossa Tonight

Posted by Sarah / April 30, 2009

cansecos07a.jpgI assume that by now, those of you who are students are all done exams and ripe for a night of good old fashion dancing. There's seriously no better way to unwind than to let it all out and shake it off. There's the odd few electro bands that I really get into from time to time and The Cansecos happens to be one of them. They have a way of mashing up real instruments, organic music, and processed beats, which always feels more real and is a much appreciated quality. I first heard them last year on CBC Radio 3, where their song "Raised by Wolves" was a big hit on the R3-30 and immediately took a liking to them. I got together with the boys from The Cansecos a few minutes ago (literally, not even an hour ago... I'm still out of breath from my windy bike ride back) and talked music with the four gentlemen

Their latest "official" album was released at the very end of 2007. It's a really nice, heady album that I enjoyed waking up to last week a few days in a row. After "Juices", The Cansecos have put out free records on the web, the first one being a bunch of disco remixes of some of their songs, and the latest was a disco mix that was provoked by the people's interest in the disco tunes used in the said remixes. They say audiences usually get both types of tunes when they go see their live act.

Since I'm less familiar with electronic music, I was curious about how they go into the process of creating such music. Apparently, Juices sprung out of a recorded drum session from which they extracted beats and noodled around with. The finished product of the record is the result of polishing work that took place somewhere between their bedrooms and the stage (ahum!).

The boys are completely enamored with our beautiful city. Seriously, when I asked them what they thought about Montreal, their replies communicated such favorable passion that it was hard not to blush (lucky for me it was dark on Casa's terrace). They love our beautiful women, our vibe and our overall sense of style (as much for clothes as for architecture). Apparently we have a way of making things beautiful. Though they haven't all been properly "poutinified", they did put my knowledge of the provincial tradition to the test by proposing that the first poutines used to be thrown in paper bags (fries, gravy, cheese, alouette!) and shaken around in the said bag before being served. Honestly, I couldn't confirm what appeared to be a strange idea about where the poutine came from (where I come from, poutine is a ball of salted pork rolled into an inch thick coating of mashed taters and then boiled). I pray you readers, both me AND The Cansecos need to be enlightened about the accuracy of this story.

Bah, even if you don't know the answer, you still have time to run out your door and go shake it at Sala... oh, and they're opening for Shout Out Out Out Out so run, don't walk!
