Congratulations to Shotgun Jimmie and Daniel Romano – Transistor Sister and Sleep Beneath the Willow have been named to the 2011 Polaris Prize long list! And also to our good pals Frederick Squire (of Daniel, Fred, and Julie) and the Luyas for their nominations. We couldn’t be any happier, and have got all available fingers crossed for an invite to the party – because we like parties.
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.
