Season’s greetings friends!
I hope you’re all enjoying a week of wine, folly, and subversive role reversals this Saturnalia. We are not. Instead, we’re in the studio, working on a new LP that the very cool new label Bayonet Records will be putting out next year. Dig their roster here.
In other record industry news, our friends at Fixture (Canada’s best record label) finally made a Facebook page. Beyond the expected news-u-can-use stuff it includes an amazing photo archive of the last seven years of Montreal music happenings. Check it out here.
We’d better get back to work. Hope to see you next year. We’ll leave you with a seasonal favourite by our pious neighbours TOPS:
If you’re in Montreal, copies will also be available at our LP release show on November 30th. Deets here.
LP release show!
Pre-orders of the our new LP, Do Not Affect a Breezy Manner, include a free copy of a very limited Pinapple Hair + In the Bottle Garden vinyl re-issue. Edit: too late slackers; the record is now out and available here.
The record release show will be held in Montreal on November 30th. Here is the FB event.
Here’s one of the songs off the LP:
And here’s the video that we and our friends in Brave Radar made for another track:
We were lucky enough to hear to a test pressing. Record of the year heavy favourite so far (haven’t yet heard the whole new Jef Barbara platter yet tho—indubitably a contender as well).
We did a cover of the song “Snow Miser” from the stop-motion film The Year Without a Santa Claus (1974) for a holiday compilation on UK blog The Line of Best Fit.
“Paisley and Pastel” is from our Pineapple Hair cassette e.p. on Fixture Records. The tape is sold out, but the digital download is available here: fixturerecords.bandcamp.com/album/pineapple-hair-e-p
We shot the video in our bed through a Cokin prism filter.
Premiered by Strauss on Tiny Mixtapes.
