Filmed during Sappyfest 12 in Sackville, NB, Fake Love Songs was directed by Cotey Pope and features the rolling skating talents of Kay Berkel. Fake Love Songs appears as an unlisted track on all formats of Daniel Romano – Modern Pressure (YC-032).

Stereogum has premiered Partner’s new single with a music video directed by Lesley Marshall. Watch the video below or click here to see the whole feature, including an interview with Lucy and Josée!
Josée on Play The Field:
“This song is based on a true story of when I (Josée) was in grade eight. My friends were really good at sports but I definitely was not; I was eager to belong. I gathered all my courage and tried out for my school basketball team. Somehow I made it past tryouts and onto the single ‘A’ team. I was so happy to just be on a team, it didn’t matter that I would only score one basket all season, or that I would score on my own team.
Lucy and I try to channel that blissful state in this song, which could be described as an effort to reclaim some of our dignity by surrendering to our true talents. It’s about admiring, romanticizing, and desiring the dignified excellence that seems to come along with being good at sports, knowing it’s something you will never truly experience but not really minding because you’re stoked that you get to hang out with your crush at practice.”
YCTV senior correspondent Shotgun Jimmie is back with his coverage of the You’ve Changed 8th Anniversary concert, which took place at Longboat Hall in Toronto, ON, April 22, 2017. Featuring exclusive interviews and performances from Richard Laviolette, Daniel Romano, Partner, and the man himself, Shotgun Jimmie.
You’ve Changed Records is proud to announce the September 8th, 2017 release of the long-awaited debut album from Partner – In Search Of Lost Time.
Already well-celebrated for their enthusiastic and action-packed live shows (The Globe and Mail declared them “the best new band in Canada” after one of their first shows) and early singles (Hot Knives, The “Ellen” Page, Personal Weekend) In Search Of Lost Time takes things to a whole new level (not just standing on a small wooden step and ripping out a totally excellent guitar solo).
Recorded by Josh Korody and mixed by Chris Shaw (Ween, Weezer, Bob Dylan, Public Enemy, Wilco), In Search Of Lost Time is heavy as a crush, nimble as a thimble, smart as a doctorate, stupid as edible underwear; 12 songs that shudder with wit, melody and the peerless confederation of Josée Caron and Lucy Niles. None of their influences – not Weezer, Ween, Dinosaur Jr or any of the lesbian superfecta (k.d. lang, Melissa Etheridge, Tegan, Sara) – marry Partner’s craft for singles and their willingness to laugh at themselves – at least not with the same smiling candour. In Search Of Lost Time proves that it’s always more freeing, and probably more fun, to be the butt of the joke.
Listen to Everybody Knows:
Partner – In Search Of Lost Time (YC-032) is available on September 8th, 2017 on LP, CD, and Digital formats. Pre-orders (including a couple of fancy package offers) are available now in our mailorder shop.

Maybe you’ve been wondering what ever happened to puppet Nap Eyes? Had Nigel poisoned his friends with his green science potion? And what about when he drank the potion himself? Was he able to transcend his dimensional bounds? Maybe you yourself have experimented with science, or drugs? Maybe you’ve let your own puppet spirit run wild through quiet neighbourhoods at dusk looking for an angry fix, or a starry dynamo, or a conveniently located fresh baked pie?
Maybe you don’t know what I’m talking about and should watch the Nap Eyes official video for ‘Click Clack’:
and then the brand new EXCITING CONCLUSION in ‘Roll It’:
