  • On Saturday Pitchfork started with a dilemma, Kevin Morby or Royal Headache? I had recently seen a set by Morby at Schubas so I opted for Royal Headache. I did stick around for one song by Morby and Will Miller from Whitney was joining them on stage to play trumpet. Some of festival highlights tend to be those mini […]

  • Montreal’s Suuns produce music that is cool, calm, and collected: prog-pop melodies with a wry vibe. Their last two LP’s Zeros QC and Images Du Futur were refreshing and sleek in a scene that was mostly saturated with derivative...
