Music’s Mitosis

Music’s Mitosis is a music trivia podcast. Each episode features a guest band, with bandmates competing against each other for trivia victory!

It’s basically a show full of indie musicians nerding out on music trivia and history.

Our aim is to celebrate the music that influenced these musicians and comes through in their sound.

#22 • Preoccupations

October 17, 2016

Preoccupations (fka Viet Cong) is a Calgary based band but since Matt Flegel recently moved to Montreal we figured they make the cut. This band is so good and has so many great sounds but mostly it is their impeccable taste, musically and otherwise that makes them one of the coolest bands going. (Except Monty is a huge GnR nerd. YAY!)

#21 • Technical Kidman

June 8, 2016

Technical indeed. This prog/Industrial band is so sharp and tight they border on electro. That said there is a human element that shines through the machines and their song writing is far more interesting than any formulaic dance music. They have a new album out which you can get here: Something Stranger Coming on the Horizon and the play Youngnesse they did the music for is on stage now at Festival OFFTA in Montreal! 

#20 • The Barr Brothers

May 3, 2016

The Barr Brothers can play just about anything they want. Country, rock, folk, blues and a mix of everything, actual brothers Andrew Barr (Drums) and Brad (Guitar, vocals) along with harpist Sarah Page are all over the map. Luckily they are talented enough to go wherever their instincts lead never losing sight of an identity that always feels authentic. Their new EP Alta Falls is out this week.

#19 • SUUNS

April 12, 2016

Suuns are the perfect combination of simple and complex. Post post post punk, slightly experimental, definitely dark. Once I told Ben Shemie they were like a zero-pop band. He said “does that mean we’ll never be popular?” No, Ben, no it doesn’t.

#18 • Par for the Course

February 25, 2016

DJ team Par for the Course lay down an awesome soundtrack at Nouveau Palais on thursday nights in Montreal. Eric Dougherty (also an amazing musician and singer p.s.) and Jacob Spector are the perfect duo to ask, “Is the Macarena relevant?” and “Do you think Harry Nilsson would make a good drinking buddy?” So come on inside, we’ll get you a martini and find out.

Songs we played: Glen Campbell: Wichita Lineman, Los Del Rio (ft. Bayside Boys Remix): Macarena, The Microphones: I Felt Your Shape.

#17 • Katie Moore

February 3, 2016

Katie Moore has been on everyone’s albums. From The Barr Brothers to Socalled and that doesn’t include the live shows! But she is also a singer and musician in her own right and we had her and her partner Andrew Horton (also her bass player and fishing buddy!) in for some trivia and to discuss her latest album, Fooled By the Fun.

You can buy the album here:

The songs we played: Heart Like a Wheel, Chain-Link, Fooled By the Fun.
