From November 18th-21st, Grimes, Hudson Mohawke, and Hey Rosetta! brought out crowds in droves for the 10th annual M For Montreal. Headliners aside, this is one of Canada’s premiere festivals for musical discovery. Wander into any show on any given night, and you’re bound to see something new and unexpected. With that in mind, we tackled the schedule with a sleep-deprived sense of adventure in a quest to hear some new music. What did we find? A Saskatchewanian rap crew, a mask wearing trap-rock band, and nipple-baring, ‘80s worshipping sleaze-wave duo, just to name a few.
Here are five musical discoveries we made while attending this year’s M For Montreal.
