Freundlings! It has started out to be a surreal Pop to be SURE! Krista took a recording workshop yesterday hosted by Howard Bilerman at his Hotel2Tango studio with legendary live analog recordist STEVE ALBINI. She learned some new mic tricks for her upcoming album (see pics below for serious Krista profiles). Then she headed down to food lab at SAT today where Steve Albini narrated as he cooked one of his typical "after studio session meals". Moderated by head chef Michelle Marek. What a surreal treat for all! Final dishes were complex greens, bulgar risotto and steak angler. No dessert necessary.

Meanwhile I'm (Lederhosen LUCIL!) gearing up to play KidsPop BBQ Saturday at 13h30 at Parc Petit Italie with a wicked entertaining line-up from 12:30-6:30pm, ja! Fabricville, Country, so many fun bands!!! I'll be there sporting our neue "HYPO RECORDS" Microecoatnomy Shop. We even accept plastic if you fancy buying merchandise from our "shop".

Here's a Luke Wilson impersonator modeling it during a trial run. JAAA! SO many bands to check aut this year JJ Fad, Shonen Knife, The Adam Brown, Ronnie Spector, Dot WigginsÉon und on see you there!!!

Lucil to play POP MONTREAL! Come aut September 20th to the Petit Italie Park for the FREE Pop Montreal BBQ/showcaseÉset times TBA!

And while we here at hypo records play on, we want to take the time to pay homage to our dear friend, supportive fan and fellow arts advocate/journalist Ange-Aimee Woods who passed away due to heart failure in July. Krista performed one of Woods' favorites at the memorial "No Matter How Far" - echoing Tshala Muana's words "We sing everything. We have nothing else."

A memorial bursary for journalism students has been created in her honor. If you would like to read more about Ange-Aimee's work or to contribute you can do so here.She rocked every Lederhosen Lucil show she came to and was consulting on our upcoming tv series.

Here is a little clip of Lederhosen Lucil singing her bicycle song "Chicken On Clark" live:

We were disheartened to hear that The Julie Ruin had to cancel the remainder of their tour due to Kathleen Hanna's Lyme disease. The silver lining was coming across the moving documentary about her life/the Riot Grrrl movement. The doc is called "The Punk Singer". If you haven't seen it...

Freundlings! We hope you are enjoying your summertime - picnic'ing, melonade, schwimming, und spending lots of time outdoors with the people you liebe! We had to change our June tour plans due to illness, but things are stable now and we're looking forward to continuing to work on the tv series we've long been dreaming of. In June we experienced Kid Koala's/KK Barrett's premiere of Nufonia Must Fall Live at the Luminato festival, and rocked Hamilton (at "This Ain't Hollywood" mit the ausgezeichnet Tamara Sandor und Annie & The Honks) und then Toronto on Friday the 13th (The Cavern - curated by ubermusik lieber Mar Sellars)!

Physical copies can be bought through the Lucil store and at live shows only. YAAAAAY!!!! Right now we are working on some select tour dates.

THE BRAND NEUE ALBUM "GUTEN TAG, GEMINI!" is so close freundlings! Lederhosen Lucil and Krista Muir finally came together in Haunted Hallways/Marsonic studios this summer/fall to produce an album featuring songs about women's hockey, hackers, vikings, sports, benign cysts, sensitive boys, rich families, bi-polarity and MORE! It is another DIY genre-bending album with pop, electro, garage and rock n' roll numbers. Special guests on sax, cello, drums, saw, viking chorusÉoh, it's a veritable treat! Tracks "Sensitive Boy/Rich Family" were done live off the floor with Krista/Lucil's friends "The Mercy Buckets" in Ottawa just after Krista's successful surgery (you need not ask - just listen to "Hair Baby" on the new album). JAAAAA!

This fall also brought a wicked collaboration between KM/LL and their favorite photographer Jocelyn Michel. What they created together is pure eye candy bliss! Deciding upon cover art and web redesign (yes, I know it's been a hilariously long time coming - our priorities have always been music, costumes, delicious food and THEN a modern websiteÉha ha!) will not be easy. Here are a few pics from the shoot:

Ich bin back in Montreal und almost fully recovered from what was definitely the most intense but fun SXSW to date! With over 8,000 bands playing over the course of the week it was hard not to get completely overwhelmed and lost in das mayhem. But Krista finally had the chance to see ausgezeichnet bands like The Magnetic Fields, Daniel Johnston, Lionel Ritchie (und Kenny Rogers came on stage to sing "Lady" mit him - das BEST!), The Cult (Krista caught the lead player's guitar pick, ja!), Gary Lucas' live soundtrack to Coffin Joe's "This Night I Will Possess Your Corpse" und so many random und amazing bands from Taiwan, Ireland, Iceland and beyond! She also ate much BBQ und participated in Fashion X and managed to see Bruce Springsteen's story-telling keynote speech at das conference centre. JA!

Before SXSW I had das pleasure of climbing out of Krista's suitcase und spieling in San Antonio at "Big Spill Festival" mit Best Coast, UN, und DJ Jester. Und after that at SX I rocked Ceeplus' Culture Vulture day party. Here I am rockin' in mein sailorhosen:

Krista has told me that this year she'll make time for me in das studio to record ein neue albummen. It's been a few years since my "Aqua Love" single release so I'm ready to REEEEECORD! I'll keep you posted on developments mein freundlings. Here's to spring!
