Come celebrate the end of 2013 and the holiday season with the Bonsound crew! Wear your goldest chains and your shiniest bling bling (if you feel like it). DJs Scott C and Andy Williams from The GOODS will be in charge of making you dance. All this is going down Saturday, December 14th at La Sala Rossa! It's free and everyone is invited!
Dead Obies present their new music video, directed by Martin C. Pariseau (Roméo & Fils), for Do or Die and In America.
Groenland is on a roll! Their song The Chase can be heard in British Airways' latest web ad and they've recently won two awards at the Quebec Indie Music Awards (GAMIQ): Pop Album of the Year and Breakthrough Artist of the Year.
Montréal $ud, the ambitious first album from the montréalais-by-rive-sud collective Dead Obies, is available now digitally via Bonsound (a vinyl album will be available at a later date). The tracks chronicle the proverbial stations of the cross by six young Jesus figures (MCs Snail Kid, 20some, Yes Mccan, O.G. BEAR, RCA, and producer VNCE) as they travel from the suburbs (Montréal-Sud, Longueuil's original name) to the big city. Each of the 17 songs is packed with locational and generational aspirations and anxieties. Buy the album on their website or on iTunes.
Don't miss the free album launch show in Montreal, at Cabaret du Mile-End, on November 13th, presented in collaboration with Coup de coeur francophone!
