Pop Montreal was magic

We’ve crawled out from under hangovers to report on only the most exceptional, mind-melting moments at Pop 2013.

Meet the Montreal rapper who’s everywhere

You may have seen his name on Artbeat Montreal flyers, read his posts on MIMS and Mook Life, watched him lead a panel discussion at Slang Rap Democracy, or heard his 2011 EP Odd Man Out on your homie’s stereo — or, more recently, his collabo with Loe Pesci, the Narcicyst and Kaytranada, “Mine, Now,” soon to be released on OMO’s follow-up.

The sound of musical

Socalled crams rappers, singers, puppets, harpists, a string quartet and an indie rhythm section onto his new record, The Season.
