No, we're not dead yet

I normally wouldn't be writing about a 3-question-long interview with Davey and pretend it's worth a post, but I feel like I need to prove that this blog is still going, despite the lack of news. Well, to be honest, there was the exciting news that the band and Polyvinyl finally realized a street team couldn't hurt, but by the time I was ready to inform you, all the positions had already been filled, and it's not like whoever is reading this page isn't checking or the band's facebook page or twitter.
Head over to Ethos magazine for the interview in question - not that you will learn anything new from it (well, maybe the release date for Yip Deceiver's LP - April 12th - I'm not sure we had a set date before).

So I guess all we have to do now is wait for The Controller Sphere to come out. My guess is that it'll coincide with the beginning of the new tour, so it should be 6 weeks away. Still, you'd expect the track listing and the artwork and whatnot to be public by now, but I may be getting impatient in my old age.

My City, My Secret

I'm not sure when this thing aired in the US, but I found a video of My City, My Secret, featuring Dottie and Bryan (See the post below) It's like the shortest and coolest tour guide you've ever seen - and I'm sure you (with your keen eyes and of Montreal-obsessed mind) will recognize a few people there. And some of you (well, more like 5 of us, I guess) will recognize a 2-second-long snippet from Spenser Simrill's documentary, Family Nouveau. You can watch it here. So far I only have this link to a facebook video, and some of you with no facebook account may not be able to watch it, but I'm not sure CNN will be okay with me uploading it on youtube, and I'm already out of "get out of jail free" cards.
