Fuck Montreal 

Saturn Return (independent)


Two years after its entire online discography disappeared, Halifax ex-pats turned pug farmers Fuck Montreal are back with Saturn Return, a 31-track super compilation. Lurching from freaked-out pseudo pop to near dirges, this is the best of the best of Alex Currie and Jenna Empey’s basement-born lovechild. There’s lots to get excited about on this tape; Currie can create a percussive wall with a suitcase and a lunchbox, and Empey’s vocals on “Knife Fuck” and their cover of “I’m on Fire” make her the ghost I most want/am most afraid to be haunted by. This is the spooky, sludgy, sometimes sparse nightmare-scape we all deserve.
