Half-Light

Rostam - "Bike Dream" Rostam - "Never Going To Catch Me" A few minutes ago, in the fall, when it was still summer, I had this perfect routine. Every morning, I'd lift myself from the dream of the revolving city...

You would have loved these owls

Nathaniel Russell - "It Is Hard To Be Good" Nathaniel Russell - "Run To A Loving One" Last night my friend told me a story about this job he used to have in California, measuring owls and then letting...

raw vegetables

The Famines - "Faux Famous" [Bandcamp] Sometimes, raw simple things is all you need like eating vegetables with hummus....

Sterling Silver Lasers

A$AP Mob - "Raf (feat. A$AP Rocky, Playboi Carti, Quavo, Lil Uzi Vert & Frank Ocean)" This song is mostly just A Song, and barely even that - it's twice as long as it should be, way too much and...

Charles Bradley

An excerpt from Sappy Times' 2011 edition: Charles Bradley comes out in a red and gold suit, flying like a screaming soul eagle. We cheer, but not yet knowing. His band is magic, treasure, the finest things you could find....

Big Feel

Beverly Glenn-Copeland - "Ever New" Lido Pimienta - "La Capacidad" Partner - "Remember This" I've been trying to figure out exactly what to say about Sappyfest 12 since I got back home from it more than a month ago. Everything...

that young feeling

Yves Tumor - "The Feeling When You Walk Away" [Bandcamp] So Pop Montreal is coming up soon here. I look through its lineup and make me feel old that I don't know many of them but then, I listen through...

Do You

SZA - "Anything" When fall first starts encroaching you need a spell - something small to push you past your wistfulness into the core of things, so you can appreciate the way the sunshine is instead of getting mired inside...

fuck 'em

Kyle Landstra - "Vestige I" [Bandcamp] I am meditating right now listening to this. neo-nazis. fuck 'em....

SHAMBLING

Keith Jarrett - "Treasure Island" [buy] This is shuffling music. A song travelling at half-speed with no destination in mind. It stops to look in every shop window. It rolls down the street noticing the orange of summer dawn...

Estivale

Dylarama - "Saison Estivale" We caught this song on the car radio, coming in static-shot like a transmission from outer space. Stripped down to just voice and woozy guitars, this would be a perfectly fine normal good song, but the.....

PUNK VERITÉ

Doggo - "1342" [bandcamp] Doggo - "Not Bitter" [bandcamp] (Or if you're in Montreal buy a tape from the band!) Big feelings, lots of words crammed into short songs, no-bullshit raw pop punk. That's the Doggo formula. Coming straight...

PATIENT COMEBACK

Goldfish - "Charm". In 1996, a band called Goldfish started recording an album. 21 years later, they finished it. Predictions of the Future is a time-capsule from a departed Montreal - tough, luscious, part-tarnished. Punk-rock from an era when punk...

Living in the elevator

(photo source) Francis Bebey - "Bissau" (Buy) Lately, I've been swamped with work and didn't get a chance to write here. My apologies. It's been eating shit food too. just bread rice and bag of chips. Again, I go...

Girls Girls

The Young Disciples & Co. - Girls Girls Girls I have not been writing here too much because I am embarrassed at how little new music I've listened to this summer. I know the point of this whole thing is...

RIVER OF DUST

Culture Abuse - "So Busted" [buy] These are the facts: the ever-present rattle of the wind through the tall grass. The low trickle of the stream across the dry riverbed. The travelling dust, getting into homes and clothes and...

MARKY MOONE

Television - "Marquee Moon (Live 1978)" [buy] "I don't know why anyone else even bothered making music after this performance." - Spike (The lupins are here! I love this photo by Spike)...

SHINE BRIGHT

Moss Lime - "I Always Get What I Want" [buy] This is psych-up music for a world-class diamond thief. She plays it in her headphones in the backseat of her limo, as the chauffeur whisks her to the second...

Wolf Like

Sonny Smith - "Wolf Like Howls from the Bathhouse (South East Land Otter Champs)" We're tiptoeing into the glowing edges of my favourite season now, the one where everything really starts to overlap. Past and present, day and evening, sound...

Peece

The Clean - "Point That Thing Somewhere" [Buy] I hope people don't think I'm disgusting but I was peeing this morning in a rush. I put the seat up and started peeing with such a force but seat bounced back...
