Our last radio show for the CKUT Montreal Sessions is today and we’re the featured band! We’ve been absolutely loving our residency at the radio station and today we’ll be premiering new, unreleased songs of ours recorded at Digital Bird Studios as well as a pre-taped live set of even newer tunes recorded at CKUT last weekend.  Then we’ll have a heart to heart about ’em on air.  Listen on-line (ckut.ca) or tune your radio to 90.3FM here in Montreal between 3-5pm.  If you can’t tune in at that time be sure to visit our website afterward for links to the archive of the show!

Our dear friend, Maximilien Bouchard, took some photos of our set on Saturday night at Divan Orange. Thanks Max! (Check out his sweet croon on the tune “Oh how I walked down your street“)

Tour poster! Silkscreened!

The recession has hit industries hard all across Canada. Indie rock is no exception. To pool resources and lower costs, we have agreed to tour with Toronto’s Modernboys Moderngirls in Ontario and Quebec. To console oursleves, Nightwood will be tour blogging here and on Indyish.com while on the road!

Jan 14 @ Jimmy Jazz, GUELPH, ON
Jan 15 @ Phog Lounge, WINDSOR, ON
Jan 16 @ Call the Office, LONDON, ON
Jan 17 @ Mansion, KINGSTON, ON (Nightwood only – Produced by YGK Productions, CFRC and Exclaim!)
Jan 18 @ Bands Undone, OTTAWA, ON (Nightwood only/WEB ONLY event)
Jan 19 @ The Horseshoe, TORONTO, ON (Nightwood only)

Feb 5 @ Montreal House, PETERBOROUGH, ON
Feb 6 @ Café Dekcuf, OTTAWA, ON

Nightwood and Modernboys Moderngirls both share a DIY attitude to recording, touring and releasing music. We’ve also both recently released debut full-length albums (Carta Marina and I Might As Well Break It respectively).

This is no friendship wagon, however. Each band has promised to out perform the other nightly. This is Montreal vs.Toronto – a rivalry rooted in Canadian tradition. Every city, every venue – hometown pride will be at stake. Trash talking and dirty tricks are in, leaving unscathed is not. The bands will drink, they will play, we will travel together, and eventually, will very likely be embarrassed by the video and photo evidence of our tour together.

There is some light in these dark times: we are pleased to announce the pleasure we take in swinging first in the ring with the release of our new music video for the song The Bright Girls of Summer!

Your know us, of course, so here’s a bit about the other band:
MODERNBOYS MODERNGIRLS (Akira Alemany, Brett Millius, Juan Carlos Rivas) songs and shows combine punk and soul music. The band released their highly praised debut album I Might As Well Break It this past September with distribution from Fontana North. The band has built upon rave reviews for their live performances at showcase in the past year at Edgefest, NXNE, Halifax Pop Explosion, as well as their debut shows in NYC. Modernboys Moderngirls will be recording several new singles as well as producing their first music video this winter.

Check out our new music video for the song The Bright Girls of Summer!

Serving Suggestion: Please wait for the video to load properly and then listen to it as loud as possible!

Nightwood time-lapsed the entire recording process of our latest record, Carta Marina. This music video is a condensed version of the time-lapses, which run approximately 14 minutes long when viewed in a unedited back-to-back sequence. We couldn’t include the mastering sequence at Greymarket or the additional mixing at Tyler Crawford’s place, but you can check out those videos (and each day) in full right here!

The Bright Girls of Summer is the last song on Carta Marina. We hadn’t planned on making a video for it so soon, but it works beautifully with the time lapse imagery. We really like this video because it’s a neat little time capsule about how we made the record and the people who helped us along the way. We encourage you to read the lyrics right here, if that’s your kind of thing.

  • Recent review of Carta Marina on In Your Speakers.
  • More about the record.
  • In Montreal, you can pick up the record at Phonopolis, Sound Central and Cheap Thrills!
  • If you’re elsewhere in the world, you can purchase the album on  iTunes or order the record (which comes with a digital download card) from Etsy or Indyish.

Two shapes, two colours and one image!

Holla! Check these out! Each of our t-shirts was lovingly silkscreened by the band! The t-shirt features a section of the 16th century Carta Marina (“map of the sea”) by Olaus Magnus and was printed with washable white ink onto a super-soft jersey cotton American Apparel t-shirt. So buy one and choose the colour, style and size that best suits you! Check ’em out in our Etsy shoppe, or pick one up at a show. Also, have a peep at an earlier conversation we had about t-shirts.

Close up!
