Montreal Monday – Blue Hawaii

Second edition of ‘Montreal Music’!

Blue Hawaii are a side project of Braids’ Raphaelle Standell-Preston. Like Braids, they play art rock with a bit of experimental stuff, and I would agree with Wikipedia assessment of Braids as being shoe-gaze.

They will be commencing a tour soon (see the end of this post), with the CD launch for their new album Untogether this Thursday night at La Plante with Doldrums, who are also launching a new disc (dual CD launch!), the show is only $5 in advance, or $8 at the door.

Track 2, “Try to Be”, from their upcoming album:
