You gotta trust your friends when they tip you to new bands.
The other night, during an unexpected late night drinking session in the East End, I got three great recommendations of bands to check out, including a tip to hear new music from some band with Holy in the name. Holy…. something. I confirmed it the next morning that I should hear the newest from from Holy Family. The Montreal (via Gothenburg, Sweden) duo are Anton Ekman + Viktor Hansson, who’ve got a new record out called “Can’t Dance, Won’t Steal, Need Some Help”. The album has the band compiling 5 tracks from their shared one-room Montreal apartment with the other 5 tracks completed while in Gothenburg.
I don’t know where “Alexander The Great” was recorded, but it’s my choice for your first listen. Anyone going to M For Montreal next week? If I were, I’d be making time to see this band.
