Carden Plains

July 20th, 2011

Jacob Faurholt is a trustworthy dude. We simply trust his taste in music. He introduced us to a friend and collaborator, Soren Brothers, a Canadian musician whom he met a couple of years ago in Montreal, and had moved to Berlin around the same time he did. That’s about the only thing we could tell you about SB, but I guess his music speaks for itself. Listen to ‘Carden Plains‘ by ‘Man meets bear’, SB`s psuedonimon.

Yellow bird project

January 27th, 2011

I am all cited to tell you about this wonderful nonprofit organization I have discovered,  based in Montreal founded by 2 uni grads, Casey and Matt. Its called The Yellow bird project, and they work with an amzing roster of indie artists ( Bon Iver, Andrew Bird, Beach house, Devendra Banhart, Grizzly Bear, Joseph Arthur, to name but a few), to create unique T shirts designs that benefit an array of charities, each chosen by the artists.

Read what they say about themselves: ..”You can think of us as a tree of creativity, with branches joining together indie musicians, charitable organizations, and t-shirts with a fashionable punch. We’re a non-profit Montreal based organization dedicated to bringing our customers the finest of quality, originality, and philanthropy. We seek out only the coolest of cool artists, collaborate with them to design awesomely awesome tee-shirts, and give all the prettiest of pretty profits to charities of the artists’ choice.”

The mission:

1. To raise money for charities directly through the barter and trade of our fab tee-shirts. Unfortunately we no longer accept goats; money proved to be an easier currency to store.

2. To raise awareness for charity organizations and their aims through artists’ endorsement. YBP is a very different venue for these charities. It brings in a lot of younger people and encourages philanthropy from treble and bass clefts. It is definitely more work to have multiple charities, rather than one fund, but we think it allows the artists to pick something that is truly important to them. 

3. To raise the profile of artists we like. We by no means want to or presume to have the ability to make artists into marketed machines and different versions of Ms. Spears, but we want to help raise their profiles and get them the attention that they deserve. We hope YBP can in some way help artists and music to prosper, and in turn help those less fortunate.

Listen to their Theme song written and performed by The tallest man on earth:

Chills

January 25th, 2011

Its not a coincidence this concert took place at the Glenn Gould studio. A madman to madman, Glenn Gould and Chilly Gonzales, 2 piano monsters, the latter has been our favorite for quite some time, and this CBC concert is a must for fans and passer bys. Its starts with some serious solo piano ala Erik Satie and continues with monologues, rap and some singing. For those of you who don’t know the monster; ..” Chilly Gonzales (a.k.a. Gonzales, a.k.a. Jason Beck) is a musical chameleon. He’s a pianist with serious classical chops, who sounds like Erik Satie and also puts out electronica records. On other records he raps, he sings, and collaborates with the likes of Feist, Peaches, Mocky and Buck 65 on some of their best-known work. He grew up in Montreal, tried a Canadian music career there and in Toronto, found himself artistically in Berlin and now lives in Paris“…
