There was a time when Canada could do no wrong. It seemed that with each passing week there was another new exciting act to discover. Times have been less dramatic of late but there are signs of a mini revival. First Caribou dropped a brilliant new album called ‘Andorra’ and now Vancouver based Montag (aka Antoine BÃ©dard) is making similarly inspiring electronic noises on his third album ‘Going Places’. Not that Montag should be a total stranger as he has already twisted ‘Set Yourself On Fire’ by Stars for their remix album. ‘Going Places’ was created with the help some notable collaborators including M83, Au Revoir Simone, Amy Millan and Beach House and was lovingly put together in Montag’s home studio. So far, so interesting and thankfully the music entirely lives up to the billing. The album’s title track was imaginatively conceived from the collective imaginations of over 70 interweb dreamers. From such complexity seeps sonic gold as ‘Going Places’ slowly morphs into an utterly compelling listen. Gentle yet diverse Montag could be about to kickstart Canada’s next assault on the blogosphere and beyond. KD
