Episode Summary

Views of Montreal
Braids was born while buying a blueberry muffin in the school cafeteria during break. "We should start a band", Austin said to Raphie. "Yes, that would be cool", Said Raphie to Austin. Katie and Taylor were already members. That was their last year of High School. The band took awhile off after school - playing every day in the garage. The next year they moved together to Montreal, as graceful as a flock of migrating birds, finding themselves in a bitter cold Eastern winter. This time they practiced in a ware house with Metal bands and cigarettes, they took the metro, they stayed up late, they were happy. They lived together for the spring and listened to records at night. Now the girls live together and the boys live together. They're recording a record at Taylor and Austin's house, soon they'll have their own. Braids is a band of best friends making experimental indie pop. They have a lot of fun doing it and even got to make a video with Vincent Moon and Nora in the train yard. What a beautiful sky that day. Raphaelle It's been months since I first heard about the mysterious Clues, founded by Alden Penner of the genius Unicorns, and Brendan Reed, an ex Arcade Fire member. I was immediately smitten by the first track released, Perfect Fit, and a few months later, the album blew me. Then I found that Pop Montreal festival was starting jsut a few days after I arrived in my new adoptive country, that Clues would be playing it, and that Vincent Moon and his camera would also be there. A few days before fiming them, I finally had the chance of seeing Clues live, at Cabaret Juste Pour Rire. You can feel it when on stage, it's the infant prodigies of a whole city who are playing. The venue shakes, it gives you shivers and a broad smile, you just turn around and see people radiant with joy, yelling, calling the musicians by their name, dancing, singing, clapping and cheering. I forgot how many encores, i forgot how long they played, I was on cloud nine the whole night. Thmoreless
