What Am I Going To Do With Everything I Know

September 4, 2014

WS_EP_Cover_370

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

Cons_SAL_370

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

11greatmoseyItunes

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


  

You’ve Changed Records in the Yukon

September 30, 2013

YouveChanged-HeadlessOwlPoster

You’ve Changed Records is partnering with our good pals at Headless Owl Records for a very special event in the Yukon. Shotgun Jimmie, Baby Eagle, Marine Dreams, and Richard Laviolette will be joining Michael Feuerstack, The Burning Hell, Construction and Destruction, Wax Mannequin, and Kyle Cashen for a meeting of the minds and hearts, a congress of the soul, a numbering of the tribe, a collaborative recording session, and a revue show of spectacular proportions. Shary Boyle is graciously providing projected artwork and elevated vibes.

Friday, October 11 – Yukon Arts Centre, Whitehorse
Saturday, October 12 – KIAC Ballroom, Dawson City

Maybe this whole thing raises some questions: Why the Yukon? Is that a Sasquatch?  How many songwriters does it take to change a light bulb? Who’s on bass? How many clowns will fit in that car?

Here’s what I know: We are thrilled beyond thrilled. We are over the moon. We’ve already got our bags packed. Everyone has written killer new songs for the project. And the answer to all questions is, of course, “YES”.

North!


  

Marine Dreams – Corner Of The Eye (YC-016)

August 13, 2013

After so many lengthy waits, we’re happy to announce the release of the new album by Marine Dreams, Corner of the Eye on September 24th, 2013. 10 killer tracks on 180 gram vinyl and digital formats, acoustic guitars, sweet bass.

COTE Cover

 

We can’t wait for you to hear this one, so give a listen to the track Roots Come After Lengthy Waits to catch a glimpse:

 

Here’s the official line, straight out of the marketing department:

On Marine Dreams’s self titled debut, Ian Kehoe’s poetic lyrics and guitar driven production stayed close to his roots in rock and roll and punk music.  Now comes Corner of the Eye, a dreamy, unforced exploration of a musical world of its own invention.

Made quickly in a basement in Welland, ON, with Daniel Romano at the helm and Ross Miller, Ian Romano, and Tamara Lindeman on hand, songs were begun and finished in just a few hours.  Passing a book of Henri Rousseau’s paintings around the control room, naive depictions of imaginary lions and jungle blossoms, the friends turned away from drum fills, cymbals, electric guitars.   Rather, three part harmony, drum machines, and acrobatic bass create an idiosyncratic sound.  Flashes of Lee Perry and Jeff Lynne era Petty.   A joyful, complex sense of melody.  A surprising focus on groove and rhythm.  Kehoe’s lyrics, at first glance dreamy, reveal themselves on repeat listens to contain surprising complexity.  The internal is the literal on the this record, love as a force, a thing that ‘goes by, confident in it’s crazy pride’.  Emotion conflates reality.   “It’s the corner of the eye that can see the human lines’ sings Kehoe, and the line is fitting.  This is a record, and a songwriter, that exist themselves on the margins, looking out.

Pressed on 180 gram vinyl replete with a fin de siecle silhouette of a dancing woman and a prose depiction of an elephant hiding in a cherry tree, Corner Of The Eye is unusual, certainly, but irrepressible.   A record for the ages, or for some other age, perhaps, one that never actually existed, some time lost between the unfettered poeticism of the twenties and the musical confidence of the sixties.  Or perhaps it is a record only for this age, an act of sincerity by Ian Kehoe, throwing out massive choruses and three key change endings while singing quietly of the state of his soul, the complications of his love, of damp eyes and streets wet with the tears of strangers.

Mule in the Flowers nominated for the 2013 SOCAN Songwriting Prize

June 6, 2013

We are very happy to announce that Mule in the Flowers from the Weather Station Duets series has been nominated for the 2013 SOCAN Songwriting Prize. There with the other beautiful and lovely nominees is ours, a mule in the flowers of song.

It was a strangely stubborn thing; bits of it had followed me around for years. I’d written and discarded many verses. When Tamara asked if I’d be interested in participating in the Duets series I told her I had this scrap of something that I didn’t know what to do with, or how to finish. I recorded what I had and sent it to her; she was sleeping on a floor in New Jersey while her host played Sloan records all night long. She listened to the tune and understood what to do immediately. The song needed a friend; as Tamara has said, a rare character in a duet. She sent me what she’d added, and I listened, over and over again, happy and moved. We recorded in the kitchen in the spring.

Please visit the official site and cast a vote, today, tomorrow, and every or any day until July 3rd.


  

Fare-thee-well, Apollo Ghosts!

May 9, 2013

I first head Apollo Ghosts when Paul Henderson told me he couldn’t stop listening to this great band from Vancouver that he wanted to bring out to play Sappyfest. Their show that beautiful summer afternoon was extraordinary. Adrian wore a cape. Amanda kept a groovy beat and a smile on her face. Jay was silent, a perfect steady bass player. The songs were fantastic, the band was engaged and deeply present in that specific and wonderful moment, and we, the unsuspecting crowd, sung along happily and with gusto, and we all left carrying a record; unless you were slow to the merch table, sucker, as the records, priced at a lowly $5 sold out instantly.

The next summer Adrian came back to New Brunswick and spent a couple of weeks in town as the Sappy Songwriter-in-Residence, writing tunes for a new record. We hung out, went swimming, had some dinners, drank some wine, went to the drive-in for Paul’s birthday, even jammed a couple times. It was great, easy, summer-living.

I don’t remember exactly when Adrian asked if I’d be interested in putting out the new Apollo Ghosts record; it might have been when he was still in town, but I don’t think so. It might have been later on during some cross Canada phone call; always a pleasure, sometimes just a rap from Adrian left on the answering machine. In any event, I loved the record the first I heard it and I love it even more now that it’s been a part of my life for a year or two, and I’m proud it came out on You’ve Changed Records.

In July 2012 I went on tour for a week with Apollo Ghosts. 6 shows in BC and Washington State. The drives were short, the weather was good, I rode with them in their Subaru and I saw them play some fantastic fun and uplifting punk-rock shows. We ate in health-food stores and drank kombucha as they joked about being west coast hippies. That’s the thing: Apollo Ghosts are good, kind, funny, open people and an absolutely fantastic rock and roll band and both of those things are good and important and inspiring and something to cherish. I want to thank them for taking me along on one of my all-time favourite tours. I want to thank them for the laughs. I want to thank them for believing that this was a good home for Landmark. And I want to thank them for the tunes: What are your Influences?, Day of Glory, Guitar Brother, Money Has No Heart, Lightweight, Palm of My Hand, Things You Go Through, Coca-Cola Admen, and so many others.

It breaks my heart to miss this last show, oh boy. Adrian, Amanda, Jay and Jarret, my friends, in my heart I’m there dancing and singing along and happy to see you play one last time.
