The Muscadettes releasing new EP (stream two songs), playing M for Montreal showcase & other CMJ shows
by Bill Pearis
Montreal-based garage pop duo The Muscadettes released the Side A EP this past spring, and they’re ready to follow it up with the Side B EP on November 6 via PaperCup Music. We’ve got the premiere of one of its tracks, “Stray Cats,” which is one of the band’s dreamier songs. (Also its lead guitar line reminds me of the horn charts on “Apache” by Incredible Bongo Band. But I digress.) You can stream it and another track from Side B, below.
The Muscadettes are playing M for Montreal’s annual Friday CMJ showcase at Arlene’s Grocery (10/16, 11 PM set) with Solids, Chocolat, Nancy Pants, Look Vibrant, Elliot Maginot (and free poutine at 7 PM). They’ve also got a couple other CMJ shows: Tuesday, October 13 at Rockwood Music Hall (5 PM set) with Lucy & La Mer, The Walking Sticks and Oh, Cassius; and then they’ll also play Elvis Guesthouse on Saturday, October 17 (4:30 PM set) for the free PaperCup day party with Racoon Fighter, Little Racer, Suburban Living, The Teen Age, and Weekender.
