You’ve Changed Records in the Yukon

You’ve Changed Records in the Yukon

September 30, 2013 | Posted in: Baby Eagle, Marine Dreams, Richard Laviolette, Shotgun Jimmie 0

 

You’ve Changed Records is partnering with our good pals at Headless Owl Records for a very special event in the Yukon. Shotgun Jimmie, Baby Eagle, Marine Dreams, and Richard Laviolette will be joining Michael Feuerstack, The Burning Hell, Construction and Destruction, Wax Mannequin, and Kyle Cashen for a meeting of the minds and hearts, a congress of the soul, a numbering of the tribe, a collaborative recording session, and a revue show of spectacular proportions. Shary Boyle is graciously providing projected artwork and elevated vibes.

Friday, October 11 – Yukon Arts Centre, Whitehorse
Saturday, October 12 – KIAC Ballroom, Dawson City

Maybe this whole thing raises some questions: Why the Yukon? Is that a Sasquatch? How many songwriters does it take to change a light bulb? Who’s on bass? How many clowns will fit in that car?

Here’s what I know: We are thrilled beyond thrilled. We are over the moon. We’ve already got our bags packed. Everyone has written killer new songs for the project. And the answer to all questions is, of course, “YES”.

North!

New Release: Shotgun Jimmie – “Everything, Everything”

New Release: Shotgun Jimmie – “Everything, Everything”

February 19, 2013 | Posted in: Shotgun Jimmie 0

We’re very happy to announce the return of Shotgun Jimmie with a brand new LP Everything, Everything. 16 tracks of self-recorded rock and roll heart; tonnes of bangers, lots of love. The follow up to the Polaris long-listed Transistor Sister sounds like “Jonathan Richman jamming with Eric’s Trip at a Wes Anderson’s house” according to Joel Plaskett, and he would know because we gave him a copy of the album already. John K. Samson says “Much like the cabin in a Manitoba winter where it was made, Shotgun Jimmie’s Everything, Everything welcomes us into a consoling shelter of exceptionally natural, generous, and expressive songs. Jimmie has built a beautiful and lasting record. You leave it more alert to the world around you.” And oh boy are we excited he thinks so! We love it too and can’t wait for you to hear it.

Everything, Everything will be released on March 26, 2013, and is available for pre-order in our shop.

Jimmie has whole bunch of tour dates to announce soon, but in the meantime, here’s the first track on the album: “Standing In A Line.”

New Release: Shotgun Jimmie – “Transistor Sister”

New Release: Shotgun Jimmie – “Transistor Sister”

December 2, 2011 | Posted in: Shotgun Jimmie 0

World traveler, collaborator, under-dog, hard-working man, Shotgun Jimmie stakes his claim for the hearts and minds of millions with Transistor Sister. A much anticipated addition to a growing discography, following the solo debut The Onlys (Delorean) in 2007 (featuring the CBC Radio 3 and college radio chart-topping single “Bedhead”), and the much loved Attack in Black backed Still Jimmie (You’ve Changed) in 2009, Transistor Sister sounds a new confidence in Shotgun Jimmie, a confidence earned by the mile, by train or by busted up mini-van, on countless Canadian crossings and a couple of recent tours overseas.

Transistor Sister was written on tour in Europe and you can hear Jimmie in this new environment, telling the people he meets about back home, what it looks like, what falling in love there feels like, how we think about things like songs, and peace, and love. It’s a good way to see the world; packing light, a bunch of two minute blasts of pop perfection (“Late Last Year,” “Suzy,” “Transistor Sister”), a few all out anthemic rock hits (“King of Kreuzberg,” “Swamp Magic,” “Peace and Love”), and a couple of stellar collaborators: Ryan Peters of Ladyhawk and Lightning Dust on the drums and harmonies, and Jay Baird of the Feist live band and Do Make Say Think on bass and flute.

Transistor Sister is also the first Shotgun Jimmie album recorded in a fully operational professional studio, at Riverport NS’s The Confidence Lodge by Diego Medina, but it maintains the experimentation and spontaneous sense of creation of the best home recordings. Run down the stairs, slamming doors, grab a weed whacker from the shed and mic it through a wah pedal. It just sounds better doing it than it has before. The album was tracked and mixed in a couple of weeks at the end of August 2010, hurricane season, as the unusually warm waters off the south shore crashed and waves broke.
