“Girls go to college, to get more knowledge. Boys go to Jupiter, to get more stupider” sings Jacqueline Noire on Moonwood‘s latest slice of cosmic garage-punk, simply titled Jupiter. In the clip, animated by Jakob Rehlinger, Grimes sends Elon to the titular planet to eliminate some perceived alien threat and things don’t go well for the man-boy wonder. Then things get a bit weird.
Moonwood will be playing a set-long version of this song at the matinee release show for their new album Arrivals & Departures, from which the single is taken, at Toronto’s The Dupe Shop (1185 Bloor St. W,) on August 25th (doors 3pm, free, all ages).

Disco Horribilis: Latin. “To Learn of the terrible”; “Horrible dance music”
Canadian dark disco provocateurs SEMEN PRIEST (remember when they sent us a blood-filled condom?) are back with their second album. More groove and less blood this time out, but no less bile. In support of self-abuse/love, in protest of rape culture & violence against women. Rex and Zsa Zsa call for the downfall of crack-smoking mayors and burning the perpetrators of acid attacks.
