Montreal Strikes Again!

• These days, unbeknownst to many Americans, Montreal is a hotbed of progressive musical activity. This city is just pumping out great band after great band. Unfortunately, not a lot of them get any airplay here in the States. One more reason to stream CBC on your computers. HELLO! Get with the 00s already! You’re missing out on some great music. Especially Laurie Brown’s show “The Signal” which runs from 10:00 P.M. Eastern Time until 1 A.M. Anyway, I digress. The Montreal Scene was already pretty rich with new groups, and then here comes The High Dials. I really like this band. Maybe it’s because I grew up in the late 60s and early 70s musically. The High Dials are a sort of blend of the Byrds, Beatles, and the whole British Invasion. Plus a small smattering of psychedelic. The glorious 3Bs. If you enjoy pretty (guilty, caught me using that word again) harmonies, well crafted tunes and excellent musicianship, you will definitely like the High Dials. Peace!
