Due to an unforeseen amount of interest, we need to inform you that Squirrelgirl Records does not accept demos.

We would love to hear what you do, yet we just don’t have the time to deal with the demand, we are a small label and we have bands lined up for the next few years. We sincerely do not want artists spending their hard earned cash on sending us demos.


new distribution for the Sleazy Listeners cd!


Squirrelgirl news Late June -[sic] & friends


Squirrelgirl news Late June.

As some of you already know [sic] released a new full length CD on May 11th, 2004.
Here is a review by Raf Katigbak of the Montreal Mirror:

[sic] - Gorilla Masking Tape (Piehead)

Montreal audio-visual artist [sic] has been voluntarily hovering just below the radar for the past year,
letting her fan base - like her music - creep in slowly and steadily. For this release on Piehead,
[sic] has crafted a fine ambient release that shows a taste for balance, restraint and creeping people the fuck out.
Gorilla Masking Tape is the sound of warm analog textures, prepared guitar and bass, a bevy of effects pedals
and two months without sleep. Bleary-eyed and hazy, the sonic landscape has a moodiness that is at once peaceful
and unsettling, not unlike the feeling of successfully removing a small metal shard from your eyelid with a needle.

Review by Raf Katigbak


Look out for [sic]’s newest track to be released early July on German net label


[sic] has been working on a downloadable release for Squirrelgirl Records.
She has been working with friends to collaborate on tracks & upload them to this site.

Everyone is swamped with their own work, so this will be uploaded little by little.
Once the songs have all been completed, the tracks that sound nice along side each other will
eventually be downloadable to fit on a CD. Artwork will also be provided for you to print.
Until then keep an eye on the mp3 section.
[sic] is currently working on a collaborative track with Montreal starlet/gorgeous talented babe
Mylena Bergeron.


If you are in Montreal this evening be sure to head over to
Casa del Popolo

too see [sic]’s friends play at the suoni festival.

Travel the Globe: An Experimental Live Documentary Performance
16mm double-projection,
video projection

ROUGHAGE & [sic] offer up imagery from international
vantage points accompanied by live narration and an
improvised electronic soundtrack (with sound sources
partially culled from the projectors).

An abstracted physical reality is pitted against a tenuous
personal voyage...
Two 16mm projectors provide the archaic visual ephemera featuring experimental films by Montreal’s Mark Nugent, manipulated by ROUGHAGE and [sic].
The sound of the 16mm projectors is fed into a mixer and manipulated with a
variety of effects.
MEANWHILE, details from the 16mm work are re-configured and re-contextualized on projected video (as well as a road video by [sic]). The film projections provide a semi-shroud around the video.
MEANWHILE, an ethereal and slightly demented live soundscape provides the aural accompaniment to the visual onslaught.

Jen Morris & Michael Egger Pivophone LIVE

Pivophone by Jen Morris & Michael Egger (world premiere)
Thursday, January 17, 2019 at 8 PM
Cinema Bellevaux, Route Aloys-Fauquez 4, 1018 Lausanne Vaud, Suisse

À faire se retourner Edison dans sa tombe, voici en première mondiale le pivophone, dont la performance sera retransmise en direct sur plus de 20 radios publiques européennes, dans le cadre du Art’s Birthday organisé à Lausanne par Espace 2 au Cinema Bellevaux.

Tournant dans la tête de Jen Morris depuis des lustres et réalisée avec Micheal Egger, cette nouvelle machine pourrait s’inscrire comme la cerise sur le gâteau d’une histoire des machines à bruits. Des Intonarumori futuristes aux tubes robotiques des frères Decoster, c’est toute une généalogie glorifiant la virilité agressive, la force, le pouvoir, l’industrie et la guerre que révèle le pivophone. Le pivophone met en doute ce qui jusqu’à son arrivée faisait autorité dans les arts du son. Alors, s’agit-il d’écouter des pives comme John Cage désirait entendre l’âme des cendriers ? Non, mais on se rapproche. Et oui il faut se rapprocher. On est dans l’art de la miniature. Miniature d’un gros show télévisé où les pop stars sont des pives. Miniature d’une scène faite miroir. Miniature d’une patinoire d’Holidays on Ice, où les danseurs-hockeyeuses sont finalement grandeur nature. Alors déjà assité à un ballet de pives majestueuses sous speed ? Déjà écouté le fracas d’une pive contre une autre ?

Jen Morris est une artiste sonore de performances électroniques, radicales et troublantes. De renommée internationale sous le pseudo [sic], Morris communique rarement avec l’espèce humaine. Mais lorsqu’elle le fait, à travers, aussi, la vidéo, l’installation, la bande son de films et son label Squirrelgirl, c’est frontal et désarçonnant. Automatic word wrap

Michael Egger est un artiste vidéo, bricoleur-inventeur, programmeur, musicien et pédagogue.

Et aussi au programme de la soirée:

Thomas Tilly, Abstral Compost, Louis Schild et Antoine Läng, Raphaël Raccuia.
