We recognize and acknowledge that this event takes place on unceded, unsurrendered Algonquin-Anishinabe territory. We also ask that attendees be kind humans, and leave antiquated attitudes at the door, including but not limited to a zero tolerance for racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ageism, ableism, and you’re-not-my-vibe-ism. We’re here for a good time, not a WTF time.

In addition Steven Lambke will be performing as part of the Festival on Thursday August 18th at 5 Arlington at 5pm. This very special event is a book launch for Ian Roy’s new collection of stories, Meticulous, Sad and Lonely.

New Release: Ancient Shapes – “Ancient Shapes”

New Release: Ancient Shapes – “Ancient Shapes”

May 27, 2016 | Posted in: Daniel Romano 0

Though he is best known for his recent work evoking the sounds of classic country music, Daniel Romano has always been a free and restless spirit, a gifted musician and artist, a magpie flying free of genre. On May 27, 2016 he released two albums: The masterful and adventurous “Mosey” (New West Records) and an unexpected blast of punk rock/power pop as Ancient Shapes – which represents a return to You’ve Changed Records, the label he co-founded in 2009 with Steven Lambke, and to his roots in punk rock. It is also a further explosion of all expectations and genre boundaries.

Romano was feeling defeated after a lengthy production session. The drums were set up and he rolled tape, banging through 20 minutes of rhythm just to get the sweat out. There and then Ancient Shapes was born, and quickly blossomed outward with layers of brash guitars and trebly bass. All this in a day’s work but the words, soon to be found amid the abandoned poems that did not have a home beyond the pages scattered on the floor. What didn’t fit was cut. What space remained was improvised.

The result is instant, immediate and fierce power pop reminiscent of early Buzzcocks and Television with surprising hints of Romano’s roots in hardcore and a lifelong Dylan fascination. The music is hard and desperate, as it should be, the vocals balanced on the rails but never quite falling off. Ancient Shapes is a study of a blank and nameless generation. This is the sound. These are the moves. The name is Ancient Shapes. May we all have fearless death tomorrow.

Ancient Shapes is presented as a Double A-side with the entire program appearing on both sides of the LP. This world-wide exclusive LP pressing is available only from You’ve Changed Records.

What happens when the thing you love begins disappearing in front of your eyes?

It’s a heavy question: Terminal City, the debut album by Adrian Teacher & The Subs, documents a rapidly changing Vancouver, an endangered planet, faltering relationships and personal loss. It is a return to classic form – filtering heavy subject matter through the 2 1⁄2 minute frantically upbeat power-pop song, while giving gentle musical nods to 70s UK pub rock scene (think proto-punks like Squeeze or Nick Lowe).

And it’s a return to You’ve Changed Records by the former Apollo Ghosts songwriter, and boy are we happy to have him back. With the Subs in tow, Amanda Pezzutto on drums and vocals and Robbie Nall on bass and vocals, the sound is a hearty continuation of the work of Apollo Ghosts and the short-lived but much-loved Cool TV.

Terminal City was recorded to tape at the Bottle Garden in Montreal by Peter Woodford (Freelove Fenner, Moss Lime) and at JC/DC studios in Vancouver by David Carswell (Destroyer, New Pornographers), and follows 2015’s Calvin Johnson produced Sorta Hafta EP.

Terminal City is available in a limited pressing of 300 copies. Get it now before it’s gone the way of the mom and pop shops, the local grocers, “affordable” rents, and the weather. It is available for Pre-order now from our mailorder shop.
