music montreal

i love teenage girls who love elephant 6. i love teenage girls who love built to spill, animal collective, pavement. i love teenage girls who love music in which the community is dominated by mid-30s men. i love how nonjudgemental they are when you’re new to the music, don’t know a song, don’t have every single  album on limited-press vinyl, aren’t good at remembering names, can’t play an instrument. i love teenage girls who experiment with music when there’s a world of criticism waiting out there for us. it makes me hopeful for the future of the music we love and makes me not want to give up on learning new things about music. we have so much power. i love us.

of Montreal


One, two, three, four

Montreal is where I began to feel inside
The gray sadness of winter
You told me that this isn’t it and I drove away

Walking to the statue in the park
Through snow drifts up over our knees
And every street sign written in French
We sat by the statue, you looked in my eyes
And then said, “I’m so sorry”

Later, laying on your bed
Wondering what’s going wrong
Every time I’d ask, you’d start crying
And whisper, “I don’t know why
I only know what I feel, what a voice says to me”

I may be here now
But I’ve never left Montreal

Mysterious Band - Untitled [Diggin’ Holes][Live]

Okay this has a really cool backstory that blew my mind (since I’m a big E6 fan too). In the early 2000s, Isaac Brock teamed up with Elephant 6 members Julian Koster (of Neutral Milk Hotel and The Music Tapes), Bill Doss (of The Olivia Tremor Control), Robbie Cucchiaro (of The Music Tapes), and Kevin Barnes (of of Montreal) and formed a sort of super group only known as “Mysterious Band”. According to people in the E6 facebook group, this band played a few more times with more people.

This recording was released on a compilation called Border Music…Flicker Of A Smile - Athens Experimental (U.S. Pop Life Vol. 10), which was only released in Japan.
