Montreal post-punk crew caught up close...

Pottery hail from Montreal, a city whose nexus of creative communities seem to specialise in thinking outside the norm.

The band's skittering, off piste post-punk leanings move from Josef K abstraction through to itchy Orange Juice melodies, via New York's ultra-cool 99 Records stable.

Snapped up by Partisan Records - a label whose roster takes some beating right now - Pottery unleashed their 'No. 1' EP earlier this year.

Out now, the group completed a flurry of European shows this month, and will continue this with a set at End Of The Road Festival in early September.

Hitting London's Moth Club venue a few days ago, photographer Rachel Lipsitz got up close to this fascinating, perplexing Montreal project.
