Steven Lambke – Days Of Heaven

October 1, 2015


Memory is the daughter of heaven and earth, and the muse is a daughter of memory and everything. It is traditional for an artist to call on the muse at the beginning of an endeavour. This suggests that the great works of art begin, not in the presence of the muse, but in her absence. – Amanda Jernigan

If Steven Lambke were a bird he’d be a Zeppelin – Daniel Romano

So let us invoke the muses, and let us fly like a zeppelin. This is my new record, Days of Heaven; dear muses, let me speak true of it. It’s a tender, intimate thing, though in it’s tenderness and in it’s intimacy it required attention and courage. The songs were written over some years in the crumbling capitals of an old world: Venice, Detroit, Sackville, Toronto. Tamara Lindeman (The Weather Station) and Ian Kehoe (Marine Dreams) helped me develop them, adding layers, adding voices, being audience and sounding board, adding as I was paring them down to the essentials: a flower, a stone, a swallow. I was a man softly saying ‘love’ into the dread silence of a full moon. We recorded with my frequent collaborator Jeff McMurrich (Constantines, Jennifer Castle, John K Samson) and then we recorded more at home. Mika Posen played violin and Ross Miller played bass. Darcy Hancock (Ladyhawk), my friend, played guitar on Dead Stones, You Know Me Well, and Moonshine Brother. Richard Laviolette lent his brave voice to Moonshine Brother; it makes the song; may we all choose our families well. Shary Boyle, with unmeasurable generosity of spirit lent her beautiful sculpture La Lune to the album as grace and muse.

My love, be brave. Strong enough to love. Strong enough to be loved. To listen close to love and hear love.

Days Of Heaven, the first song on the album, was written on New Years Day in Sackville, NB. I was alone and the wind was strong. Tamara played the bowed guitars. If you listen closely at the end you can hear the drum machine bleeding through.

Thank you for listening. I hope you like it.


Days Of Heaven is available October 30, 2015 on LP/CD/Digital formats.


Nap Eyes – Whine Of The Mystic

May 19, 2015


Originally released in a limited run of 200 LPs by Plastic Factory Records of Montreal in 2014, Nap Eyes’ Whine Of The Mystic found some enthusiastic support among those with their ears tuned to the stranger frequencies: Sean Micheals at Said The Gramophone named the epic album closer No Fear Of Hellfire the 9th best song of the 2014 (“They are a rock band just so faintly tripping. They are priests of Shaolin and the Holy See, with electric guitars in their hands.”); Weird Canada noted that “this saintly record radiates with the light of the community from which it was born” evoking the continued excellence of the band’s home town Halifax scene (including Monomyth with Nap Eyes’ own Josh Salter and Seamus Dalton). It was a record passed around between friends. It was a secret weapon.

On July 10, 2015, You’ve Changed Records will be re-releasing Whine Of The Mystic making this brilliant album available across Canada for the first time. Our partners at crime at the excellent US label Paradise Of Bachelors will be introducing it to the world. We are thrilled.

Nap Eyes songs are reckless and wise; they deal equally in science and spirit; they balance melody and noise as well as any in the great tradition of The Velvets, The Clean, The Verlaines, and The Modern Lovers. They are drunken and literate, rich in life, and deep in the old trap: you drive into knowledge and find oblivion, and toward oblivion knowledge.

Please listen to first track Dark Creedence below:


Nap Eyes – Delirium and Persecution Paranoia, live at Coach House Sound, Toronto.

Whine Of The Mystic is available now on LP/CD/Digital formats.
A new full-length Nap Eyes album will be released in early 2016 by You’ve Changed Records and Paradise of Bachelors.


Marine Dreams – Producer’s Wonderland

January 14, 2015

Producers Cover370

Ian Kehoe is Marine Dreams. I want to make this clear as he brings us this new and very personal album. Written, performed, recorded, mixed, and mastered by Ian in his home studio, Producer’s Wonderland is the work of a singular vision and a unique mind.

Displaying Ian’s robust commitment to ongoing creativity and continuing development as a songwriter and musician, Producer’s Wonderland is rich in melodic and rhythmic adventures. Vocal harmonies and acoustic guitar textures mix with programmed drums and synths in deep and surprising pop songs.

If this is a new sound for Marine Dreams, it increases my impression that this is an album about personal growth, about learning – there’s even a song called “Learning Experience” that describes the making of Lemon Tree, the previous Marine Dreams album. It’s as if what is being “produced” is not just the music, but also the person making the music. What does it mean to love (“Love(After Eros The Bittersweet)” named for the Anne Carson book), to maintain life-long friendships (the tender and beautiful “Michael”), to live with uncertainty (“No Use”)?

There are big questions asked here, but asked joyfully; posed and arranged in a group of wonderful and magical songs.

Producer’s Wonderland
1. One Question
2. Polished Stone
3. Snake Fish
4. No Use
5. Learning Experience
6. Sunny Starry Moon
7. Love (After “Eros The Bittersweet”)
8. Michael
9. Men Without Grace
10. Prisoner Of Eternity

Please listen to No Use below.

Producer’s Wonderland (YC-021) will be released January 27, 2015 on Limited Edition Cassette and Digital formats.


YCR 5th Anniversary Concert Film

December 29, 2014

YCR had a pretty rad year in 2014, with new music from Marine Dreams and The Weather Station, the release of Community Theatre, our collaborative super-group project with Headless Owl Records, and the re-issue of The Constantines – Shine A Light.

We also celebrated our 5th anniversary with a couple of concerts featuring as many of our pals and collaborators as we could muster, our hearts full of song and good cheer. Huge thanks are due to Colin Medley for documenting the happenings May 22nd at The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto, Ontario, Canada,  in this live concert film featuring performances from Richard Laviolette, Baby Eagle, Marine Dreams, The Weather Station, Daniel Romano and the Trilliums, and Shotgun Jimmie.  It was a good night.

Truly, truly, thank you for listening and supporting the music. Lots more to come in 2015!

Community Theatre – Northern Register

September 30, 2014


In October 2013, Headless Owl Records, based in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, invited Shotgun Jimmie, Steve Lambke (Baby Eagle/Constantines), Richard Laviolette, and Ian Kehoe (Marine Dreams/Attack in Black) to travel north for a very special collaborative recording project with Michael Feuerstack, Mathias Kom (The Burning Hell), Colleen Collins and David Trenaman of Construction and Destruction, Wax Mannequin, and Kyle Cashen. Each songwriter was invited to contribute a new song for the occasion and to contribute musically to the other songs. The next few days were completely magic: filled with hard work, dedication, beautiful music, and many laughs, all moved by a wonderful and rare spirit of collaboration.

The live performances of the group, featuring live projections by acclaimed visual artist Shary Boyle, and presented as “The Cost of Doing Business”, won the 2013 Yukon Arts Audience Awards for Best Music Performance in both Whitehorse and Dawson City.

Community Theatre – Northern Register collects the Whitehorse recordings in a beautiful gatefold jacket featuring illustration and collages by Shary Boyle. The music ranges from the Crazy Horse/Magnolia Electric Co style rock of Richard Laviolette’s Snailhouse, to the dark dub-pop of Kyle Cashen’s Engines. A choir of positivity joins Shotgun Jimmie on Onward & Upward! Construction and Destruction get glacial (slow and heavy and sparkly) on Winter Studies No. 4. Baby Eagle tells a John Prine inspired shaggy-dog story on Plymouth Acclaim: For Sale.  Michael Feuerstack’s beautiful Will You Know? gets the full We Are The World treatment.

We are very happy to be releasing this unique album in collaboration with Headless Owl Records.

Listen to Richard Laviolette lead the group in Snailhouse, below:

What Am I Going To Do With Everything I Know

September 4, 2014


You’ve Changed Records is very pleased to announce the return of The Weather Station with What Am I Going To Do With Everything I Know (YC-019), a limited edition 6 song 45 RPM 12″ EP.

Recorded with All Of It Was Mine (YC-011) producer Daniel Romano in Welland, ON and in North Carolina with members of the band Megafaun, the sound of What Am I Going To Do With Everything I Know (YC-019) is deep and rich, quiet but soulful, and startlingly intimate. Each side of the record is a trio of interconnected songs.  Side A is a meditation on knowledge. Side B is a narrative, a love story in three parts. States of mind and domestic situation are described with equal and incisive fidelity.

Since the release of  All Of It Was Mine in 2011, The Weather Station’s Tamara Lindeman has been touring as handpicked opener for Bahamas, Basia Bulat, Jason Collett, among others.  She has also been in demand as collaborator, appearing on new records by Doug Paisley (Warner), Field Report (Partisan), Wayne Petti (Paper Bag), Siskiyou (Constellation), and Daniel Romano (New West). Her work has been covered by Pitchfork, The Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, and many more, and has been played on CBC, BBC, NPR, and college radio.  The Duets Series, an ongoing project of digital singles co-written by Tamara with other songwriters, was nominated for the 2013 SOCAN songwriting prize.

In addition to What Am I Going To Do With Everything I Know, a new full-length album from The Weather Station has been recorded in collaboration with Afie Jurvanen (Bahamas) and Robbie Lackritz (Feist).  Titled Loyalty, the LP will be released in 2015.

What Am I Going To Do With Everything I Know will be released on October 14, 2014; pre-orders are available now through our mailorder shop.

The Constantines – Shine A Light 11th Anniversary Reissue

April 21, 2014


You’ve Changed Records is very happy and excited to announce June 10th, 2014 as the release date for a deluxe reissue of The Constantines – Shine A Light LP.

Originally released in 2003 by Sub Pop Records and, in Canada, by the late great Three Gut Records, Shine A Light has been out of print since 2007. In that time it’s been named one of the top 200 records of the 2000s by Pitchfork, and one of the greatest Canadian albums of all time by CBC Music. Even more important and more moving have been all the times someone has told any one of us in the band that this record and these songs have meant something to them.  Thank you, sincerely; and for asking us if we were ever going to repress this record, thank you.

This reissue has been pressed from a newly cut vinyl master and the original collages used in the gatefold artwork have been re-photographed; they’re battered at the edges, and coloured by their age 11 years on. Included with the LP is a special bonus 7inch containing 3 B-sides recorded at the time of Shine A Light: Thank You For Sending Me An Angel (a Talking Heads cover); Raw Youth (a Royal City cover, recorded live); and Hotline Operator (2003) (a studio experiment distinct from the Tournament of Hearts song with which it shares a name). This is the first ever vinyl pressing of these 3 tracks.

Pre-orders to Canadian Addresses can be placed now through our mail-order shop; for international orders, please visit our pals at Sub Pop Records. The first 250 orders will receive limited orange vinyl edition of the LP. LP + T-shirt bundles are also available.

Maybe best of all, The Constantines will be performing a number of shows in 2014, indoor, outdoor, in any any weather; bring on the hail!

With Love.

King Of Mosey

February 4, 2014


If you were lucky enough to see Daniel Romano on tour this past fall you may have noticed this little compact disc on the merch table, between the belt buckles, tooled leather, and western shirts. Maybe you picked it up at the time, maybe you didn’t; it’s hard to say: times are tough. Maybe you missed the show, or Daniel and his band couldn’t make it to your town. In any event, were very happy to make this limited edition CD available through our mailorder shop, for a limited time, for a limited amount of money: $20 CAD including shipping to anywhere in the world! We only have a very few of these left, so, yes, mosey, but mosey quick or miss out completely.

And what’s on this compact disc?!? New recordings of some of Daniel’s favourite tunes from all 3 of his albums, a new version of Runner from the Daniel, Fred, and Julie project, and two brand new songs not available anywhere else in any form: If You See Alice, and Old Fires Die

Here’s the track list in total: 1. I Won’t Let It, 2. Old Fires Die, 3. Chicken Bill, 4. Nothing, 5. Missing Wind, 6. If You See Alice, 7. Louise, 8. (I’m Not) Crying Over You, 9. A New Love (Can Be Found), 10. Time Forgot (To Change My Heart), 11. Runner
