Pop Montreal Picks: 6 acts to catch on Sunday, September 21
Sep 21, 2014 12:37pm | Chart Attack
Pop Montréal takes over the other capital of Québec from September 17 to 21. We're assembling six loosely chronological concert picks for every day, to guide your festival crawl. Here are our picks for Sunday, September 21.

Tyler Messick - 7:30PM @ Fédération Ukrainienne :: Salle St-Ambroise

Rural Pennsylvania-born, Halifax-trained, and now, Montreal-based folkie weirdo Tyler Messick played backup to Joel Plaskett and Al Tuck before setting out by his lonesome. It's one helluva pedigree, but Messick proves to be every bit the storyteller that the pastoral upbringing thing suggests.

Jim-E Stack - 8PM @ SAT

Brooklyn producer Jim-E Stack does loungey downtempo (but "loungey downtempo" in a less Massive Attack-, more Shlohmo-type way). A great stop whether you're just gearing up or, somehow, already coming down.

Each Other - 9:05PM @ Metropolis / Suzanne Vega - 9:10PM @ Fédération Ukrainienne :: Salle St-Ambroise

Decisions, decisions the Montreal-by-way-of-Halifax garage psych trio are one of the buzziest indie bands in the country; on the other hand, Vega's songwriting is a high-watermark for late '80s pop. (Even if you're asking "Suzanne who?," her "Luka" and "Tom's Diner" own at least a few neurons somewhere in your brain). It's like Hawaiian pizza vs. Chianti. If only you could have both.

Pop Montreal Saturday Recap: Glorious noise from Deafheaven, I Smell Blood, Big Brave and more

Saturday I realized I hadnt really made use of my earplugs throughout much of Pop Montreal, but thankfully there was a host of great acts willing to remedy that for me.

Playing first on a great lineup of bands curated by Hamiltons Perdu Records, I Smell Blood's sinewy, muscular songs writhed and snapped in wild and wonderful ways. As a bass and drum duo they immediately call to mind Death From Above 1979, but the distorted bass squelches and jazzier drum style puts them closer to the likes of Lightning Bolt or fellow Southern Ontarians Toronto Homicide Squad. Like their songs, I Smell Bloods set was short and to the point, but they mightve been in a hurry for other reasons: before they launched into their final song, the drummer quipped: after this were going to fuck off and get drunk in Montreal.

Their brief performance meant I could run down to see Montreals own Fakes at La Sala Rosa, but my gut told me Il Motore (or Bar le "Ritz" PDB or whatever its called now) would be a full house for No Joy and Deafheaven. My suspicions were confirmed to me as I hoofed it along Jean Talon street, seeing an increasing number of hoodies and dark clothing congregating outside the venue. Sure enough, the event was sold out, so I was stuck waiting outside with the other lanyards and wristbands until all the ticket-holders had showed up.

Inside Win Butlers POP Vs. Jock III Celebrity Basketball Game And Afterparty
Sep 21, 2014 7:30am | StereoGum

Who says indie rockers can’t dominate on the basketball court? At yesterday’s POP vs. Jock basketball game, played for the third year in a row at the POP Montreal festival, Arcade Fire’s Win Butler and a group of musicians including his bandmate and brother Will, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, and Nikolai Fraiture of The Strokes showed they could give college-level players a run for their money. They took on team Jock, which boasted members of the McGill and Concordia University basketball teams. After a slow start in the first quarter, POP dominated later in the game and came back to win 101-92.
