POP MTL 2013 Artist Pass: Aleks Schürmer of Syngja lists his show picks

Posted by Greg / September 26, 2013

20130926-PopPicks.jpgFor our Artist Pass series, we asked artists playing Pop Montreal which acts they plan on seeing at the festival once their own shows are over. The picks below belong to Aleks Schürmer, local music expert, co-director of digital baroque opera Le Pop D'Époque, and one third of the electro-classical band Syngja with Tyr Jami and Zuzu Knew.

Before heading out into the Pop Montreal wilderness, also take a look at my own guide to the festival and our podcast series featuring music from each of its five days.

¡FLIST! is about as visceral as one can get and still, you know, keep it together. Sweaty, dirty, crazy--but in a sexy way. And super dancey. The last time I saw him live, I heard some cute bb gay in the audience say "I wanna get ¡FLIST!-ed". But in a sexy way. Also, Team Rockit! (Saturday at Cabaret Playhouse)

It's always awesome to see D'Eon perform, but I've really been looking forward to this one. He's one of the only pop artists I know who I feel legitimately blurs the lines between pop and art. Don't miss this. (Thursday at Phi Centre)

Hua Li 化力 - Neo soul sexiness and serious rap skills in one tiny qt kawaii bb package. I've heard rumours she comes from outer space, also. Probably the gayest of all the Pop shows this year--Hua Li, Cakes Da Killa, The Salivation Army, Royal Phoenix. Super gay times. (Saturday at The Royal Phoenix)

Dresden Dresses - frenetic rave baby music to the nth degree. like if tumblr was a song. (Thursday at Église Pop Little Burgundy)

UN makes me want to dance, which is weird, cos I'm one of those 'I don't dance' people usually. When I saw them at NXNE this year, they even made me forget how much I dislike being in Toronto... (Friday at Club Lambi)

See Syngja play tonight at the Church of St. John the Evangelist and Saturday at Divan Orange.

Watch/listen to a playlist Aleks's picks below.
