Alex Bergeron, Year of Glad mastermind, will be hosting his second installment of “Church of the Air” this afternoon on our Montreal Sessions!! He’ll be having plenty of special guests on air from 3 to 5PM local time. Matt Legroulx of EXPWY and a few of his Kinnta Records cohorts will be joining him in the studio. Dam Ships will also be doing a live performance of the floor, don’t miss it!!





Wow, Montreal, you have outdone yourself: saw Peter Brotzmann, the Ratchet Orchestra, the French-American Peace Ensemble, Nu Sensae, Babysitter + JLK, Mikal Cronin, EXPWY and more in the past week alone∑ still reeling a bit and catching my breath over here in the music dept.

Enough blathering, back to work – here are some charts.

Interview w/ Porn Persons + Expwy on New Shit 4/8

porn persons

We had a wild time interviewing Rodna Howard and her legal scientist from the band Porn Persons. Look out for a transcription wherein we discuss the legal ramifications of a falling ton of bricks vs. the feather of an illegal pelican. Plus, we interviewed the 50s prog, bubblegum pop, AM-radio-Tommy-aspiring, (often) one man band, Expressway. Both bands will be playing our Total Eclipse Festival Series. Check our playlist below, plus a fan-made video for Expwy, and take a listen to the show over at the archives!
