ARCHIVES: Daniel Romano Limited Edition LP pressings!

Announcing the launch of a brand new catalog of archive releases! The You’ve Changed Records Archive Series will present limited edition vinyl pressings of albums that had previously received digital-only releases, with a new catalog numbering beginning at YCA-001. The Archive Series launches with the first two releases from Daniel Romano’s unprecedented run of albums released in 2020 at the onset of the Covid-19 global pandemic: “Visions of The Higher Dream” and “Content To Point The Way”. Both titles will be released on May 20, 2022.

In 2020, Daniel Romano and his increasingly exalted band “The Outfit” were forced home, faced with the cancellation of tours and all live engagements due to public health necessities. Almost immediately, Daniel instigated a near legendary run of new albums, releasing 10 full-length albums in the span of nearly the same number of weeks. Genre-spanning, astoundingly distinct artist achievements of an unprecedented order, these albums were originally released exclusively in digital only formats on Bandcamp. They were direct and immediate missives from one of the most talented, prolific, ambitious, and exciting artists of his generation. We are thrilled to begin releasing these albums now in very special limited-edition vinyl pressings.

YC-001
“Visions Of The Higher Dream” is an expression of rich, visionary psychaedelia, powerfully arranged and immaculately performed, and thoroughly beautiful in its scope and in its details. It is as complete a statement, and as fully executed a vision as this famously restless artist has offered: a timeless and timely evocation of the higher dream.

YC-002
“Content To Point The Way” offers fans the long-awaited return of the traditional timeless country that Daniel Romano became known for on albums such as Sleep Beneath The Willow, Come Cry With Me, and If I’ve Only One Time Asking, but here elevated by his current group The Outfit, world’s finest purveyors of musical skill and vibe. Stunning wordplay, timeless songwriting, and musical brilliance combine on one of Daniel Romano’s most popular releases.

NEW MUSIC: STEVEN LAMBKE – VOLCANO VOLCANO

NEW MUSIC: STEVEN LAMBKE – VOLCANO VOLCANO

March 14, 2022 | Posted in: Steven Lambke 0

Announcing! Volcano Volcano, a brand new record by Steven Lambke will be released on April 29th!

“Volcano Volcano is an invitation, an exploration of potential, an opportunity for listening and thinking and relating that holds space for otherwise thinking and shared meaning-making. The making of this record, from its sonics and aesthetics to its lyrics and composition communicate a vital potential to communally re-order, re-invent and re-connect to something beyond ourselves. This requires something out of the ordinary from both performer and audience. It asks us to think of music and performance in an open and expansive way, beyond the normal separate enclosures wherein the performer turns up the volume demanding to be heard and seen, basking in applause, before selling merch side stage, and then driving away to a sad motel somewhere. It requires us to meet.” Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, from the album text – read the whole thing here.

To preview the upcoming album a two-song single has been released. Every Lover Knows previews the Volcano Volcano album, saluting the great teachers Love and Experience; Deep Water is an exclusive non-album track, a bonus jam for your listening pleasure, today and until the end. Every Lover Knows / Deep Water is available on all streaming platforms and available for download here.

Volcano Volcano features true friends Daniel Romano and David Nardi on drums and bass, and a few special appearances by superstar singer Carson McHone. Guitars are loud and together we sing!

As always, offered with deep thanks and heavy gratitude.

NEW MUSIC: APOLLO GHOSTS – PINK TIGER DOUBLE LP!

January 11, 2022 | Posted in: Apollo Ghosts 0

Pink Tiger is the 2-part, 22-song epic return by Vancouver’s beloved DIY champs Apollo Ghosts!

Part 1, “Pink” (LP 1, tracks 1-11), is an intimate home recorded acoustic based cycle that grapples with loss, illness, death, and memory. Part 2, “Tiger” (LP 2, tracks 12-22) is an exuberant indie-garage rock celebration of the persistence of friendship, music, and hope. Apollo Ghosts draw on a long history of independent and locally focused music making, from Flying Nun to K Records to their own Vancouver scene, to reinvigorate indie guitar rock songwriter with ambition and poise.

Available March 11th, 2022 exclusively via You’ve Changed Records—the album features the band’s new single, “Spilling Yr Guts”.

“About seven years ago, I stood around a makeshift fire pit in a clearing on a small gulf island with a group of my best friends. We burned a beer can and made jokes. When I started recording the first half of this record, I thought everything was falling apart. For six months, I could only hear from one ear and the doctor said it could be something quite serious. The cedars were still dying. My dad was still dying.

A year later, we recorded the second half of the record on Gabriola Island. My ear finally cleared up after the sessions were over. We listened to the final masters in the middle of the heat dome summer during the Perseid meteor shower. The heat dome eventually ended. In the fall, Amanda and I planted dozens of trees (Garry oaks, willows, alders and maples) around that fire pit. Our bass player Robbie’s having a baby this spring. Amanda’s started restoring hand-crank sewing machines. She says everything can be mended. It might be too late, but I’m going to keep planting trees every year going forward anyways.

Apollo Ghosts joked that this was a feeble attempt at making our own ‘Tusk’. Some influences this round: The Bats, Dear Nora, Little Wings, Tom T. Hall, The La’s, Beverly Glenn Copeland, disco beats, ocean swims, trees, Lucia Berlin & Lydia Davis, and as always…. the local music scene.”

Welcome to the New Year, from Julie Doiron and You’ve Changed Records!

As so many of us are in various stages of separation and isolation, and with the dream of a return of live music and communal experience postponed again, we want to share some recordings from Julie’s album release show at the Horseshoe Tavern in December. Julie was joined by Dany Placard on bass and vocals, Daniel Romano on lead guitar, and Ian Romano on drums.

This was a beautiful, truly special show, that happened in the small window of optimism and opening this past fall, before new variants and bad governance led us back into darkness….

MUSIC VIDEO: Status/Non-Status – “Genocidio”

“The crown skull of existence is consumption while genocide seeps into the cracks of our everyday. We’re beginning to see beyond the veil….”

Status Non Status present a new video for Genocidio in collaboration with director Travis Welowszky.

“From atop the makeshift mountain, a grim presence looms above the life below. A meditation on the endless, encroaching empire. The creatures traversing this plane are plastic and placeless; conjoined to their terrain as playthings in the tableaus of glorious exploiters. The understudies of colonial rule, silhouetted across a hill, obscure serenity by way of simulation; scrambling signals. Colonial esoterica. Banal evil in list form. Silence: the cause to the resounding pain.”

Genocidio appears on the Status/Non-Status 1, 2, 3, 4, 500 Years release
