Album launch of Mon Electric Bijou’s 7th studio album, Out of Souvenirs with special guest: the one and only Travelling Headcase.
Mon Electric Bijou
Mon Electric Bijou is a Montreal-based rock and alt-country outfit, created in 2002 by Martin Saz. Taking as much influence from the British invasion-style rock of The Who and The Kinks as Guided By Voices and Gram Parsons, Mon Electric Bijou’s songs combine melodicism and noise in fully distinct fashion.
Travelling Headcase plays some heartfelt acoustic blues…his very somber and reflective pieces recall Tim Buckley and, especially, Nick Drake. Still unique enough to command his own stylistic take on his narcotic presentation of the folk/blues music he’s playing, Travelling Headcase gets high (no pun intended) marks for his brutal honesty and fine, introspective (if sparse) lyrics.
