Go big or go home, as they say, and Matt Holubowski did just that when he played Montréal’s MTELUS on March 4, 2020, to mark the release of his new album Weird Ones, and kick off a spring tour that’ll take him all over Québec, Canada, the U.S., and France.
We had access to his soundcheck (B&W pictures) as well as the main event (colour pictures), and you can almost feel the quiet but intense energy of his stage presence.
Critics have been unanimous about Weird Ones: it’s his best album.
“Holubowski outdoes himself. Weird Ones’ songs are proof of the talent, musical intelligence and creativity of their creator… He’s delivered a simply sublime album.” – Marissa Groguhé, La Presse
“A weightless trip through beauty itself. Matt Hobulowski’s angelic voice swims in a sea of reverberation, his melodies follow a path only they know, strange sounds made by strange instruments paint landscapes that are just as strange, indescribable and incredibly beautiful. A delicious feeling of strangeness.” – Sylvain Cormier, Le Devoir
“In his move beyond the more traditional folk of his previous work, Holubowski has uncovered new dimensions in his music, striking that delicate balance between songcraft and newfangled shimmer.” – Kaelen Bell, Exclaim!
