We were interviewed about our studio, The Bottle Garden, on CBC Montreal show Cinq à Six with Jeannette Kelly in March. We rambled about analog recording, building the studio, and gossiped about bands who’ve passed through. We played some of our own music, as well as some artists who’ve recorded in the Bottle Garden (we couldn’t play them all, unfortunately!) , including Lantern, Sheer Agony, TOPS, Jef Barbara, Moss Lime, and Exit Someone. We also got to play ‘Song For Insane Times’ by Kevin Ayers, as an example of one of our favourite recordings.
You can listen to the whole interview in the archives here.
There’s also a short web writeup here.

We’ve entered our triptych video “Surveilling the Void” into something called the Kodak Super 8 Audience Awards contest… If you like our video, please take a moment to vote for us.
The newly edited 3-parter stars the inimitable Tessa Smith of Fixture Records and Brave Radar as a solitary spy wandering around a desolate outpost. It features 3 songs from our last LP ‘Do Not Affect a Breezy Manner’: “Lash + Brow”, “Jojo’s X-tal Set”, and “Eva”.

If you can only attend two concerts this year, consider chartering a Concorde to wherever Kraftwerk’s playing next, then get back to Montreal in time for this one:

Wise to pre-order now as it’s sure to do socko shifting (units-wise) and sell out swiftly.
And here’s one of Paula’s undeniable hits:
And here’s a somewhat annoying-to-navigate playlist of our recent vids:
