Sometimes it feels like that perhaps this should be called Canadian pop site and not a Finnish pop site, because these days a huge amount of my favourite bands are Canadian. We are stuck in Canada once again, because great things keep on happening on a daily basis.
Today one of my favourite labels You’ve Changed Records announced that they will release a new The Weather Station EP in October. What Am I Going To Do With Everything I Know is a limited edition 6 song 45 RPM 12″ EP (also digital). I’m really looking forward to this one, because her earlier releases All Of It Was Mine and the Duets series are both so amazing. The wonderful title track is the first outtake from the forthcoming EP. You can pre-order the vinyl from the You’ve Changed Website or the digital from their Bandcamp.
Michael Feuerstack’s album Tambourine Death Bed was one of the highlights of 2013. Scorekeeper was the final song on that great album and yesterday Michael released a lovely wall ball music video for the song. A good way to keep that album in our minds (sometimes..especially for these clueless bloggers like yours truly.. the life span of a record seem to be something like a couple of weeks and that’s just silly and ridiculous). This one below is Scorekeeper from Tambourine Death Bed that came out on Forward Music Group last year. Michael also has a 2014 release called Singer Songer.
And last but not least. Yesterday I saw this Exclaim article about Community Theatre and I’m really excited about this one. I had not heard about this until I saw that article, but there’s indeed a collaboration album coming from some of my biggest Canadian heroes. Community Theatre will include Mathias Kom (the Burning Hell), Kyle Cashen (Old Time Machine), Chris Adeney (Wax Mannequin), Michael Feuerstack (formerly known as Snailhouse), Steve Lambke (Baby Eagle), Ian Kehoe (Marine Dreams), Jim Kilpatrick (Shotgun Jimmie), Richard Laviolette, and Colleen Collins and David Trenaman (Construction & Destruction). That’s almost a dream-like line-up and I can’t wait to hear the album when it arrives.
