My National Post review of the sweaty dance party that everyone’s favourite Montreal electro-funk duo Chromeo started with their show at Sound Academy last week. Dave 1 and P-Thugg tweeted me after I posted the link to the review so that was pretty cool.
Death From Above 1979 - “Romantic Rights”
JFK and Sebastien, you’ve done it again. I saw Death From Above 1979 at the Sound Academy on Friday night and it was every bit as memorable as when I saw them in Montreal this summer. Grainger even sang a few lines from this 50 Cent classic as the intro to “Blood On Our Hands”. It was awesome to hear the lesser known “You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine” and “You’re Lovely (But You’ve Got Lots Of Problems)” in the encore as well. The only question that remains: will we ever see new music from the duo?
I’m not sure how many people actually read these reviews, but here’s another regardless. Not mentioned in this review: how incredibly, incredibly hungover I was from the night before. This show also made me recall listening to my roommate’s vinyl copy of The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place on lazy Sunday afternoons in second year. Good times.
