Dottie & BP on CNN

Not quite sure what this is about or whether it will be broadcast on CNN Europe (or Asia, for that matter), but let it be said that Dottie and Bryan shot a documentary on Athens, Ga called "My city, my secret". Need I say more? (answer no, because that's all I've got anyway)


(you would have thought I'd have a picture of both in the same frame, but you would have been wrong)

Florida tour wrap-up

After a snowy start that forced the band to reschedule their Mobile, Al show, the traditional Florida leg of the winter tour seemed to have gone great. (That's what you guys told me, anyway.) We could have thought they would introduce a lot of new material, what with thecontrollersphere EP coming out in a few months, and rumors that the next album is already under way, but only one new song was performed. It is tentatively titled Slave Translator. Watch the video below to hear what it sounds like... I'm not sure this is the whole song**, as people seem to remember it as a longer song, or rather a piecing together of two or three different songs, Coquelicot-style. Or Skeletal Lamping-style. It actually kind of ends like And I've Seen A Bloody Shadow, only more extreme.

** sk8rrjon842, who apparently was the only person in Florida with enough sense to record the new song, tells us that it is the full song minus the opening 4 seconds or so. Thanks for sharing!

They also added a new Prince cover to the collection - Sex Shooter. Be sure to visit Matt's collection of of Montreal covers over at You Ain't No Picasso, though it hasn't been updated in a year. You'll still find 88 covers the band has performed over the years, so if you haven't done so already, you might want to download all of this.

Two interviews surfaced during this tour too : The Broward Palm Beach New Times had the good idea to ask David about his involvement with the band and the meaning of False Priest. Creative Loafing interviewed Kevin. All the usual questions were asked, but there were also a few that were not the obvious ones, so it is still a pretty interesting read. There's also a tiny bit about what the future holds, and figuring out what's next is definitely what has us scratching our heads right now, right? Don't expect any clear answer there, Kevin is rather cryptic.

Spring 2011 tour dates announced! got the scoop (take that, P4K!?) and announced new tour dates earlier today. Of course, if you live in the US or Canada, it's great news, but if you don't, you'll be more interested in the small but information-packed interview that goes with it. In it, Kevin reveals details on a few of the songs that will be on the Controller Sphere (or thecontrollersphere, or the controllersphere - they lost me there), and gives a few hints as to what the next album will sound like, and it's going to sound good.

As the band heads out to (hopefully) sunny Florida today, posted a 4-page long interview with Davey. Check it out, and don't forget to show Yip Deceiver some love as they go on tour by the end of the month (check out the dates and the details two posts down). Yip Deceiver remixed one of Sugar & Gold's new song from their upcoming Bodyaches EP (out soon on Antenna Records) and you can listen to it and download it from Antenna Records' site right now.

Watch of Montreal's New Year's Eve show on youtube!

A big thank you to Mister Lettuce who taped the band's last 2010 show (and the first one of 2011 in a way) and uploaded it to youtube for the whole world to see. Enjoy!
