It is late. It is dark. Let’s face it, you’re probably very drunk. After a long night out in Montreal, you are ready to go home. Cabs are all taken. You’ve thought about walking, because anything is better than taking a trip on the night bus.
This album is a tribute not just to nocturnal public transit but also to Montreal as a whole. Each of these 10 tracks takes you through quintessential experiences and introduces you to Quebec’s most populous island.
Think of this collection of songs not so much as a tour guide, but instead a collection of ideas and characters none of whom are singularly identifiable but when put in order build up a collage that is unmistakably Montreal.
