Igloofest Recap >> Weekend One

Igloofest! January 16 - February 8, 2015 >> Presented by Sapporo


Samson and Dalilah by Camille Saint-Saëns

Presented by l'Opéra de Montréal

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Samson and Delilah, a brief summary of the story as presented in the opera will precede the review of the show:

Act 1 – A Square in Gaza
The Hebrews are being held in slavery by the Philistines. Samson, bestowed with incredible strength by God, encourages them to have faith in their God and hope for the future. Abimélech, governor of the city, arrives with guards to mock, discourage and oppress them. Samson beats Abimélech in a fight and encourages his people to revolt. They win and the High Priest of Dagon (one of the gods worshipped by the Philistines) is angered.


Hound - Out Of Time

SRA 2014

The debut album by Philly rockers Hound allows each of us to scratch our rock itch, to indulge in an album that is relentless rock 'n' roll. Out Of Time consists of ten tracks, six of which are under three minutes in length. At less than twenty-eight minutes, this album doesn't allow for any superfluous bells or whistles, there's rockin' to be done.


Q&A - Mr. Green Live from the Streets

Live from the Streets is an original series on Noisey featuring producer Mr. Green who records street sounds, chops them up, and then collaborates with hip hop's finest artists to create the freshest beats around. Ariel DJ Misschief from CJLO's Greedy Graffiti (Thursday 2 PM) catches up with Mr. Green to find out more about the project, staying positive, and the best place to chill in Brooklyn.

 

When did you start producing tracks and when did you make the first you were truly proud of?


Confessions of an Instagram Addict

I hate to say it, but I am an Instagram addict. I see friends and they tell me, “Oh I loved your photos on Instagram, you really post a lot!” A back-handed compliment, praised tinged with judgment. I don’t really know anyone in my personal life who uses the medium so ardently, so consistently, so obsessively, and to what end?


Eagle Tears

Self-released, July 2014

If I try to describe the debut album from Eagle Tears, I think of times when music actually held some technical clout. I think the '70s. There's a total '70s metal and hard rock vibe, but to stop there would be to easy. I'll have to get to that in my summation, it'll come.
 


Caribou - Our Love

Our Love is Dan Snaith's fourth LP, and first in four years, under his Caribou moniker. Throughout the 10 tracks of the album, Snaith creates a rich tapestry of sounds that have a warmth and richness to them that envelops the listener at each turn. It's always quite amazing to find artists who can take the seemingly cold and calculating (computers, software programs, electronic equipment, and so on) and manipulate them to ultimately achieve a sound that offers a kind of 21st Century campfire warmth.


Highlights 2014 - Seb Black + Eddie Paul @ Casa del Popolo

This is the first in a series of photo essays that take a look back at some of the highlights from the year 2014. Kicking off the series is Montreal's own Seb Black at Casa del Popolo on March 20th.
