Private ukulelclasses have just wrapped up for the season and I’m getting ready for a creative sabbatical that includes researching and writing a bizarre new tv series. More about that later…for now, Lederhosen Lucil is getting ready to host the EXPOZINE AWARDS in montreal Thursday, April 24th at Divan Orange. Later on in the summer I’ll be traveling to Europe to perform at the PRAGUE UKULELE FESTIVAL and will be booking some other special Euro tour dates. Paris – Berlin – Hamburg – Liege - who knows where my travels will take me?! Well, when I do they will be posted here and at Lederhosen Lucil’s site.
We couldn’t resist! After the success of last years custom written songs en francais et in english that were digitally delivered world-wide to beloved partners, friends, husbands, girlfriends, and wives “Chanson-O-Gramme’s” are back. Simply email Krista at the address provided and she will give you the instructions on how to order yours today!
In other news Krista & Lucil released a new album in November 2013 called “Guten Tag Gemini” (check out bandcamp to stream) as well as the official “Chicken On Clark” music video shot and edited in October 2013 in Montreal. We are hoping to see it in some upcoming bicycle film festivals…JA!
It’s our month! The perfect one during which to work on Lederhosen Lucil and my first ‘collaboration’ entitled “Guten tag, Gemini!” – ha ha! Surreal, silly and beautiful it shall be. We are busy writing, re-writing, recording, deliberating…all those things that go into making a DIY album. At the same time I’ve been going through dusty old boxes and sleeves of unmarked CDRs and came across this vintage Lucil live at Clyde’s (Pointe-Claire, Quebec) video. Friend and local legend Bloodshot Bill shared the night and you can see him rocking out in the video – such FUN was had!
And there’s more to come…till then, I leave you with this:
You can pre-order your copy of “Guten tag, Gemini!” here.
It’s been two years since I released the album “Between Atoms” and I have a new project that I’d like to record this summer and release in September 2013! It’s a Lederhosen Lucil/Krista Muir album called “Guten tag, Gemini!” and I’m raising funds to make it happen via friends, fans and family. Click HERE to find out more about the project and how you can become one of my patron saints.
Two new Krista songs to hear!
I have long loved making lo-fi videos. Here’s a wicked remix of my song “Between Atoms” by Pierre Crube (of Numéro). For the video featuring Shane Watt (Semi-fictional Mapmaker), I used prisms, lenses, a variety of sunglasses, a retro shower cap, beautiful marble moon (Justin Parr – Glassmaker, San Antonio) PhotoBooth, iMovie and LOT of imagination. DIY DIY DIY!
