If you happen to be in Montreal tonight, I’d highly advise you head to The Green Room. Local band On Bodies is celebrating the release of their fantastic first record, The After EP with a performance (Sick Friend and DJ Faggotron will also partake). If you aren’t in Montreal, check out a bunch of tracks from the band here. The EP will be available online soon, but you can find copies in Montreal at Phonopolis (5403A Parc) and Cheap Thrills (2044 Metcalfe), or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org so they can snail mail a you a copy ($5 plus shipping).
Now, I’ll admit that the members of On Bodies – Mark Ambrose Harris, Sheena Hoszko, and Brian Fauteux – happen to be dear friends of mine, but that doesn’t mean my gushing doesn’t come honestly: Over the past three years, I’ve watched first hand as their music matured into the soulful mix of dark and danceable synth-pop present on The After EP, which even still is nothing compared to what they can do with a live show. So if you’re not in Montreal, enjoy this and keep an eye out for them in your local concert listings.
