CBC Song of the Summer!

9 Aug

CBC Song of the Summer!

It’s time to vote for the CBC Song of the Summer! My song “Between Atoms Le Pierre Crube Remix” is long-listed for the prize so please scroll down and vote for me!

In other news I’ve been hermitting away at the Haunted Hallways studio in Montreal as “Guten Tag, Gemini!” is taking shape and will be released in October 2013. This now 15-track album spans garage, pop, hip hop and a few suprises and includes a duet Lederhosen Lucil and I sing about women’s hockey called “Skate For Their Lives.” We can’t WAIT to release it!!!

We are also seeking out a director/producer for a video for “Chicken On Clark.” It is an epic bicycle concept so a cyclist director would be ideal! Email us with your suggestions and links to their work. 

Upcoming events in August:  August 20th Krista and her Terrific Tenor appear at the Cameron House. August 22nd “The Pet Shop Girls” DJ night at The Unloveble (Krista and Mar Sellars’ tribute night to the PSB).

Vintage Lucil continues as we write our new record!

4 Jun

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.

“Guten tag, Gemini!”

20 May

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.

Between Atoms Le Pierre Crube Remix

15 May

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!

If you want to add this track to your collection you can download it exclusively on bandcamp and help support my upcoming project: http://kristamuir.bandcamp.com/

Marfa, I love you all right!

26 Mar

Well the wind is whipping dust all over the place and I’ve been busy writing in this adobe bungalow on Texas street in the heart of Marfa. I performed at the patio at the historic El Paisano hotel on Saturday for locals, tourists and a gaggle of fancy wedding goers! Tomorrow night I’ll be playing a special set (with KM and Lederhosen Lucil songs) as “Pickwick & the Twisted Satyr.” 8pm at the Lonely Horse Saloon (formerly known as Ray’s Bar). “Drunken Parents,” an Italian punk cover band will play afterwards.

A few days ago I just couldn’t resist penning this little country love song to Miss Marfa herself. Enjoy!
