Australian duo Hermitude, made up of Luke Dubs (Luke Dubber) and El Gusto (Angus Stuart), have managed to explode onto the Australian electronic dance music scene with their unique blend of hip hop inspired bass music, much like fellow Aussie Flume. Their music is ultamitely more aggressive than that of Flume, perfectly combining elements of jazz, funk, along with hip hop fundamentals.

What really propelled their career and garnered attention worldwide – including numerous spots at Austin’s SXSW and Montreal’s very own Osheaga Music & Arts Festival – was the success of their album HyperParadise, which went on to reach Platinum status and was granted the esteemed Australian Music Prize award, and a massively popular remix of the title track by Flume. Among stops at Osheaga and Governor’s Ball, the Sydney electronic duo will also be releasing a brand new album in early May.

I reached Hermitude while they were in LAX on route to Denver to talk about their latest single “Through the Roof,” their forthcoming release and what fans can look forward to on March 28 when they play Studio Bar in Toronto, their only Canadian show (until Osheaga!). Here is our talk below:

 1D4A8946-Edit(1)

You just finished playing SXSW. How was the experience? Was it your first time there?

It was! A crazy festival, music seeping from every crack and crevice in Austin. It’s so exciting to be in that bubble and be hearing non stop sounds from every angle.

I have to say I’m really liking your latest single, “Through the Roof,” how has it been received?

Thanks! It’s been received quite well actually. Been getting lots of spins on the radio back home and is just starting to get played on radio over here. It always goes down well live. It’s got so much energy it’s hard not to bounce around to it!

Let’s talk new album. The release is scheduled for May 2015. ­What was your experience like creating this record? What can fans expect from it?

The album is titled Dark Night Sweet Light. It’s been a fun record to make, but it was quite a different experience to HyperParadise. With HyperParadise we had a whole year to fully devote to the writing process. We hadn’t been playing any gigs in that period so it gave us time to really focus and engage non stop for the whole process. With DNSW, we were touring a lot while writing the record off the back of HyperParadise. That meant we did a lot of writing on the road and in the studio in between travelling. We’re really pleased with the record, it has a different mood to our last one, and we feel our sound has developed a lot more in this last couple of years.

Did you have a vision in mind going into the album and did you know that it was going to turn out the way it did?

It took us a little while to find the sound of this record. With the hectic touring schedule we had we put down lots of different ideas in the beginning but it wasn’t for a good few months before the style of the record started to present itself. Once we agreed on where we were headed with the direction, it was just a matter of refining that style and working hard on it to get the best possible songs we could. When we started out we didn’t know what to expect, but as time went on it became clearer what kind of record we were writing.

Would you say your sound has changed since your last album HyperParadise? Has it been sparked by anything recently? 

Yeah, for sure. It’s developed. There’s elements of HyperParadise in there but there’s also some new sounds we’ve been experimenting with. I think we always draw on previous records when we write, you always learn so much with each record you make so you take that experience and build upon it. I think listening to new music is also a great way to get inspired. We always like to keep up with what’s happening musically around the globe in different genres. But then, sometimes, you can discover something old that opens your mind in a whole other way. 

You play Toronto on March 28th. What can fans expect for the show? Have you been playing any new material while you’ve been on the road?

Yeah, we have actually. We’ve been road testing some new beats on this tour and it’s going down a treat! So Toronto can expect some new bangers with some old classics. For those who don’t know we play a live set that consists of 2 turntables, an MPC 1000 sampler and 2 synthesisers. It’s a pretty high energy show so expect to keep those feet movin’!

Finally, give the readers a juicy tour story! Anything from a standout show to a crazy experience.

Probably the 2 wildest shows were BUKU fest in New Orleans or our show in Santa Ana Orange County. At BUKU we were on a boat on the Mississippi and people were jumping around so much we were rocking all over the place. In Santa Ana one guy kept throwing his girlfriend up in the air like she was a cheerleader!

Montreal is known for its abundance of art, and its importance in the international art world. The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and the Musée d’art contemporain are world-renowned institutions, which many Montrealers are familiar with. However, our city has so much more to offer–we’re lucky enough to have an incredible amount of galleries showing art by some of the world’s most celebrated, valued, and rising contemporary artists. This, mixed with an awesome street art culture, makes our city an artistic hub.

That being said, we know it is sometimes intimidating and confusing to navigate this scene. We’ve compiled a list of our favourite galleries and institutions in the city which we think everyone should pay a visit to. All of these galleries enthusiastically welcome all visitors. Even better, each of them have rotating exhibitions, and are thus always changing. Trust us–you’ll never run out of art to see in Montreal with this friendly guide!

The Montreal literary landmark, The Word Bookstore, turned 40 yesterday! The Word, located in the heart of the Mcgill ghetto at 469 Milton is a self-described “independent second hand bookstore.”

Founded in 1975 by McGill grads, Adrian and Luci King-Edwards, The Word hasn’t lost any of its charm from 1975 as the store has retained a similar decor for its 40 years in business. Don’t let that fool you, however, Adrian King-Edwards is known for his store’s neatness and the “tight ship” that he maintains at The Word.

According to The Montreal Gazette, before being a bookstore, 469 Milton was the location of a laundry. During their first few months in business, Adrian and Luci kept getting customers mistaking their bookstore for a laundry. Even though Adrian and Luci divorced in 2010, The Word will remain a family business. One of Adrian and Luci’s twin sons, Brendan, who grew up at the store and who is now 34, is the next in line to take over operations of The Word. We look forward to seeing what Brendan does with the place and we are looking forward to 50 years in business!

Just over a week ago the Jewish Food Project began and it will be running through March 31st. The series of pop-up cooking events kicked off with a workshop on cooking some unconventional Italian passover foods, like gnocchi and handmade pasta. The JFP aims to highlight the enormously wide variety of food that Jewish communities around the world eat—it’s so much more than matzo ball soup and bagels.

Among the workshops, there’s the opportunity to learn about Argentinian food, Italian food, middle-eastern food, Moroccan food, and modern American Jewish food. Other workshops focus on a skill in particular: cooking with fresh fish, cooking for specific diets, or improving your cooking-for-one game. The workshops are roughly $20 each, and you get more than your money’s worth of food and cooking tips. The workshop leaders were carefully selected and are all experts in their subject matter.

We attended the Flavours of Jewish Argentina workshop, where we made empanadas from scratch, sampled some lentil and sausage stew, and best of all, learned to make chimichurri, a truly valuable new skill.

We have our eyes on the Flavours of Morocco class, as well as the chef-taught Catch of the Day class where you can learn to make the best of whatever fish you can find.

Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with all the new music that’s released week after week – that’s why The Main has curated a special collection of top tracks this week to get you off on the right foot. This week we feature new music from Tanlines, Courtney Barnett, Toro Y Moi, Tobias Jesso Jr., Braids and more. Never heard of them? Even better. Enjoy!

1. Grimes – REALiTi

Claire Boucher, aka Grimes, has released a video for “REALiTi,” a track off the so-called “lost album,” a scrapped follow-up to Visions. She recorded the “demo” in early 2013 and shot the video while on a tour throughout Asia in March of 2013. Grimes is currently working on her fourth record. It’s on repeat for me.

2. Toro Y Moi – Buffalo

Oh boy! This latest track from Toro Y Moi has retro funk written all over it. It has its fair share of playful guitar bits and a slow section to really bring out Chaz Bundick’s endearing voice. We’ll definitely still be listening to this when summer comes around.

3. Courtney Barnett – Depreston

You’ve got to mark this release on your calendar. The Sunday-feel “Depreston” comes off Courtney Barnett’s March 24 release. Be sure to pick up Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit.

4. Modest Mouse – Of Course We All Know

More from Modest Mouse after pushing back their release date of Strangers to Ourselves to March 17th. A good portion of the album is already floating around and now they share “Of Course We Know,” the last track of the forthcoming LP. Not bad for a closer, what do you think?

5. Eternal Summers – Together Or Alone

Meet Eternal Summers an indie-pop trio hailing from Virginia. They recently offered up the first single off their fourth release, Gold And Stone. It’s sure got some ’90s alt/pop-rock tones to it that could brighten anyone’s day. The new record is out June 2nd via Kanine Records.

6. Tobias Jesso Jr. – Without You

The Canadian favourite is out with the third track is support of his debut, Goon. Making big, big waves already Tobias Jesso Jr., the Vancouver-native singer-songwriter enlists the help —not that he needs it— of Danielle Haim who plays drums on this number. Goon dropped March 17th.

7. Chromatics – I Can Never Be Myself When You’re Around

Chromatics are back with yet another fresh track off of their forthcoming full-length effort, Dear Tommy, via Italians Do It Better. “I Can Never Be Myself…” is a power-packed jam featuring guest vocals from Desire’s Megan Louise.

8. Sur Une Plage – Minimum

“Minimum” features the melancholic voice of Colin McKill amid splashes of retro-like synths. The Vancouver synth-pop band, Sur Une Plage, will be one to watch this year. Their debut, Legerdemain, dropped March 17th.

9. Tanlines – Slipping Away

Bam! The Brooklyn duo really packs a punch on “Slipping Away.” The song is breezy tropical vibes meets sunny summer afternoon dance party but is filled with an underlying sense of loss. The lead single from Tanlines will already find a home deep in your brain before the song’s end.

10. Braids – Taste

Montreal’s Braids treat us to “Taste” the second offering from Deep In The Iris. The dreamy tune comes with soothing vocals as Raphaelle Standell declares “You’re exactly what I like” Fall in love with Deep In The Iris April 28.

Montreal is a stronghold of culture. That’s why the country’s top film bureau, the National Film Board of Canada, decided it was time to revamp their facility and look. The NFB will be moving into the Îlot Balmoral, a sleek, modern building contracted by the city of Montreal to be built by the Montreal-based and award-winning architecture firm, Provencher-Roy.

Montreal city hall approved of this plan on Thursday. The project is expected to be complete in 2017, which happens to be the year of Montreal’s 375th birthday. This is just one of the many projects that will be constructed in commemoration of the city’s milestone. A few weeks ago the city announced it would be constructing a pedestrian promenade connecting the river and the mountain. 2017 will be an interesting year for the city of Montreal.

Stay alert of more details to come!

Instagrammers, whether you like it or not, are some of the most influential photographers of our age. We wanted to get to know the personalities behind the cameras, so we reached out to a few phone photographers who have been capturing their own unique beauty. These individuals have been hard at work shooting some of Montreal’s best sights, from dawn until dusk, across our city’s diverse landscapes.

Vincent Brillant, aka @montrealismes, is a young photographer who specializes in Montreal architecture. He is currently finishing his studies in professional photography at Dawson and his hobbies include photography (clearly!), urban exploration, music (death metal/black metal), politics, and many other things!

10986278_765352250228005_603868132_n

What are some of your favourite spots in Montreal? (You can include locations, restaurants, coffee shops etc)

I really like the Plateau; I’ve been living there for three years now. I love Parc Lafontaine, Square Saint-Louis and cafes and restaurants like Café “Les Entretiens” on Laurier. I also really like to walk randomly through the streets to discover new places! Drolet is a particularly photogenic street all year long!

10729257_1500206753583387_1669555755_n

When did you first start taking photographs and how has this affected your life?

I started taking photos in 2008. At that time I was doing my first program at CÉGEP in arts and I took an elective in photography. It was a course in film photography and our professor had given us a theme for our final project that we had to reproduce: “Montreal after the Third World War.” I searched google to try and find places that were abandoned or in decay around Montréal to do the project et and I was able to find an abandoned factory in St-Henri. I really loved the experience and, as soon as I developed my photos and saw the result, I knew immediately that I had to return and take some more photos for fun! I returned a second time with a friend and we really had fun! Later, I found out that a whole group of other people take photos in abandoned buildings as a hobby, and that there is a little community of urban explorers in Montreal. Meeting up with other photographers, I began to take photos of abandoned sites more and more often. It quickly changed from a simple hobby into a real passion and that’s how I decided to make it my career. Now it’s 2015, and I work as a professional photographer on this account, specializing in architecture. 

10895350_856532974428760_1202052631_n

What are your favourite things to photograph?

I love to capture moments, details, buildings, and urban environments. I love to walk through Montreal and bring attention to streets, to buildings, and to the details that surround me.

What is your process for taking the perfect photo, and where do you find your inspiration?

Usually my best photos aren’t planned in advance. I like to walk and take photos when I have time, and that’s it. I usually like to think that it’s the light that dictates if I’m going to go out —depending on where it falls I see things in different ways and that brings me to perceive my subjects in a unique way every time. I also find that instameets and instawalks has inspired me to reach a new level of photography. It is really refreshing when someone who comes with us sees details that we may have missed or sees a subject in a totally different way than us. It’s very inspiring! 

1538412_318198635049762_428663873_n

Where is a dream destination that you would love to visit and photograph?

I would really like to return to the Scandinavian countries. I travelled there in 2011, and it was simply incredible in the cities and countryside. The city of Bruges also had a superb atmosphere. Perhaps a big American city would be cool as well. Chicago? New York?

11055771_1607611819456430_1164958848_n

Your account @montréalismes was chosen as one of the 300 most prestigious accounts to follow on Instagram, has this affected your life or photography in any way? 

Like my passion for photography, Instagram has completely changed my life. When my account was chosen by instagram for the “suggested user list” in 2014, I had no idea the list even existed. I quickly saw the potential that this had and I decided to dedicate myself more seriously to Montrealismes. Instagram is truly a unique platform in a number of ways. The visibility that a user can attain on instagram is like nothing that else that exists. It’s thanks to my work on instagram that I find many of my contracts. 

10899235_798393126897775_1071714800_n

Who are some of your favourite instagrammers? 

That’s a tough question! I’m inspired by a lot of people: @nicholasdyee, @nunoassis, @legrandbazar, @fleurde.lys, @hebdomania, and many more!

In January, a Montreal startup introduced to the world a truly Canadian product: wooden sunglasses. GoWood is all about being “trendy, creative and unique.” The wood they use to make their sunglasses is 100% eco friendly, made from bamboo or Canadian maple. The sunglasses themselves are stylish, with a classic design, and of course, made extra-special with their unique wooden frames, making them perfect for winter and summer wear.

GoWood is tapped into skateboard culture. They even used recycled skateboard wood to make some of their sunglasses! Right now GoWood is available in one retail location, Modecho, all the way in Saint-Sauveur. Lucky for you, if you’re not near Saint-Sauveur, you can buy GoWood products online!

The price for a pair of GoWood sunglasses ranges from $49 with their “Los Angeles” model, which boasts bamboo legs, to $119 with its “Montreal”, “Vancouver”, and “Toulouse” models.
