New Release: Jon Mckiel – Memorial Ten Count

January 24, 2017 | Posted in: Blog, Jon Mckiel, News 0

You’ve Changed Records is very excited to welcome Jon Mckiel to the fold with the release of Memorial Ten Count (YC-030) on March 10, 2017. We’ve long been fans of Jon’s wonderful, sophisticated, and lyrical tunes, as heard on his previous self-titled 10”, the Tonka War Cloud LP, and the Confidence Lodge EP, and were blown away when we heard his new music. Characterized by intricate guitar arrangements and constantly surprising melodic progressions, Memorial Ten Count (named for the fabled toll that marks the death of a champion boxer) is full of vital guitar rock, equal parts blister-forming-grit and punch-drunk-wistfulness., and is a powerful document of the intense chemistry of the Jon Mckiel band: lead guitarist Jay Crocker (of experimental instrumental group Joyfultalk), bassisist Sean Dicey (also of Joyfultalk), and drummer Aaron Mangle (of Cousins). The album was recorded live to tape by Jay Crocker in Crousetown, NS.

Please listen to Conduit (side 2, track 1), a peace sign to America, a system of love:

We are pleased to be releasing Memorial Ten Count in collaboration with our good friends at Headless Owl Records.

Pre-orders are available in our mail-order shop.

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 reissue 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!

Hey everyone.Whoever you are. If you are anyone at all. Just kidding.

This is the brand new You’ve Changed Records website. The idea is to make this place a site you can go to on a cold night alone at home and to read hopeful news about your favourite bands. We’re sitting in our cold apartments in Montreal, and gettin our guitars fixed in Welland, walkee-talkee-ing back and forth all day, trying to make our dreams come true. Taking turns working shifts at the record store.

We’ve got a very exciting spring to think about, and wanted to share the reasons for excitement, with you, dear reader. First of all, we are to be releasing two very special records. On March 10th, Shotgun Jimmie‘s future classic Still Jimmie will be in stores across the nation. People of Canada, rejoice for this one. Jim will be going on tour with Attack in Black in the U.S. and Canada to follow up that release.

Then, on April 14th, we’ll be releasing a split album of Attack in Black and Baby Eagle playing each others’ songs. It’s great. You guys have no idea!

Hope you all are keepin’ warm.
