Joy Division is one of my favorite band.
I was recording a new track and noticed that the chords progression, even though slower, darker & kinda far-fetched, had similarities to "New Dawn Fades". Every time I would work on my track, I couldn't get the original one out of my head. So I gave up and went ahead to record a cover instead, embracing the essence of its mood --- doom-gaze style!
I impulsively decided to make a video for it, shot in NYC:
I also fell on Moby & Dave Navarro's cover, who managed to completely butcher the song. So this is kind of a response to it as well... although I'll probably get bashed on Youtube like everybody else.

CATALOGUE is a music event of improvised music on analog synths, debuting at the festival this year.
CATALOGUE is not a traditional music performance. Musicians will be displaced all around the venue, and there's no stage. "Sound stations" — an analog synth, an effect pedal and an amp — will be located around the space, and musicians are invited to use any vacant station at their will.
See local artists The World Provider, Montag, Bernardino Femminielli, and Numéro# — along with other Pop Montreal performers who join in. Visuals by the amazing, trippy Organ Mood.
The CATALOGUE itself is a registry that logs participants' contributions, so that all musicians will be credited on the session recording — available for download on the CATALOGUE website.
All musicians performing at Pop Montreal 2009 are invited to be a part of CATALOGUE. Go to http://www.montag.ca/catalogue to learn more.
PARTICIPANTS include members of...

So, Nadja is back in Canada! First show in Montreal in a year or so...
Funnily enough, it'll be the first thisquietarmy show since I last played with them on the last day of our European tour in Szczcecin, Poland on June 21st. I've played some local gigs since I came back, but they were for the most part improvised or collaborative sets... which were well needed after playing semi-rehearsed material for 3 weeks straight, almost every day.
Also, after several months of inactivity, Casa Del Popolo is back in full operating mode as a legitimate venue! We all missed this place dearly, I've already seen a few shows there since the re-opening this month, and it's stronger than ever!
Looking forward to it!
