This week's newmusicmonday features Montreal's grrrl rockers, The Dryheaves. They are on a bill tonight with Rebekah Higgs {NMM #77}in Montréal. They just released an album, 'Booby Trap', on 11 February 2011, which you can hear on the CBCr3 link. Their sound is full of catchy riffs, a nod to punk, and pop hooks...It's music that sounds like the band has fun making. I'm really interested in seeing this band live and I hope I'm in Toronto for their show on 22 April.

I think this band has a lot going for it. There the seething energy of the 90s grrrl bands and lyrics that go all over the map, in a good way. Let's just start with "Puking All Over Myself", an ode to self-destructive angst::
"I drank all of the booze on the shelf
You didn't come home, so I fucked someone else
I'm puking all over myself"
I love this live performance of "Taken", which I'll leave you with::
