Richard Laviolette – Memories Are Calling You Home

April 7, 2018 | Posted in: News, Richard Laviolette 0

“Top ten country records of 2017- Richard Laviolette “Taking The Long Way Home” is number one through ten. That is all. Just this.” – Daniel Romano

Country Folk singing hero Richard Laviolette returns to the road and the stage and the living room this spring with a tour of Atlantic Canada and Ontario. Richard will be performing his beautiful songs of grief and praise, family resilience, and political truths with a 4 piece country-band. All the better to break your heart and kick up a good holler.

Music Video: Nap Eyes – “I’m Bad”

March 6, 2018 | Posted in: Artists, Nap Eyes, News 0

“You sat here too long / Till you forgot why and now you hate the screen”

Acclaimed director Seth Smith (The Crescent, Lowlife, and also of the legendary band Dog Day) sets Nap Eye’s Nigel Chapman for a portrait. At the centre of the scene, yet alone. In a pose of a pose. The clothes fit strangely. The band is masked and disguised. How can we be uncovered? How can we, for once and finally, be seen?

I’m Bad appears on I’m Bad Now (YC-033), available March 9, 2018.

YCR 5th Anniversary Concert Film

YCR 5th Anniversary Concert Film

December 29, 2014 | Posted in: News, YCTV 0

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!
