In the two years since Tough Age’s sophomore album, I Get The Feeling Central, the curmudgeonly, comic book-loving band have reinvented themselves. Founding members Jarrett Samson and Penny Clark relocated to Toronto from Vancouver, channelling their love of Flying Nun indie-pop into a new three-piece line-up with drummer Jesse Locke (Century Palm, Simply Ssaucer). The first glimpse at this new direction was their Guess Not / Unclean 7-inch EP, now followed by their long-awaited third album, Shame. This is the band’s most collaborative effort to date—honing their econo jams on tours across North America and over the sea to Tokyo, while sharing stages with artists such as The Courtneys, HSY, and Woolworm, the trio re-emerged with a fresh set of songs that are simultaneously minimal, dynamically propulsive, and eerily experimental. They limited overdubs and tried to record live in the studio as much as possible, paring down an original set of twenty songs to a sleek eight in 32 minutes. The prominent placement of a Tough Age poster above Archie Andrews’ bed in the TV series Riverdale was a hilarious thrill for the band, but their musical tastes dig much deeper: the influence of New Zealand acts continues to loom large, but there are other less obvious inspirations: early ’80s London, ON group The Hippies, the off-kilter drumming of U.S. Maple, and the austere lyricism of The Urinals’ “punk haikus.”
Faith Healer - Try ;-)
Faith Healer
Try ;-)
LP | 2017 | US | Original (Mint)

Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
When Edmonton’s Jessica Jalbert first began performing solo under the name Faith Healer, the alias was her way of avoiding being pigeonholed as a singer-songwriter. Now, however, times have changed: Faith Healer has blossomed into a band, with singer-guitarist Jalbert joined by drummer / multi-instrumentalist Renny Wilson and their first album as a duo is Try ;-). The follow-up to 2015’s Cosmic Troubles was largely recorded during an intensive month-long session in September 2016 at Wilson’s personal studio in Montreal. During the process, Jalbert rented a room in Wilson’s house and the pair spent hours jamming and listening to bargain bin rock records in the basement. The resultant pop-rock arrangements are overflowing with beautiful sonic details—from the Twin Peaks synths that enshroud “Sterling Silver” to the funky clavinet nestled within the paisley-patterned pop of “& Waiting.” Jalbert and Wilson were also inspired by the garage-punk snarl of Wipers, the deadpan drama of Leonard Cohen’s Death Of A Ladies’ Man, and the classic songwriting chops of Scott Walker and Elvis Costello. The intensive creative process of making this album inspired the title and serves as a reminder that sometimes you need to grab life by the horns rather than waiting for inspiration to strike. As for that winky face: “I always use that winky emoticon,” Jalbert says with a laugh. “I think it’s hilarious. I think it’s cheeky and fun, which is something I was trying to access a little more with this record.” Balancing melancholy lyrics with playful moods, lush melodies with straightforward arrangements, this album is the sound of an introspective loner leaving her bedroom to make a rock record with her best bud.

Deserve To Die
LP | 2017 | US | Original (Mint)
17,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Woolworm, Vancouver’s most popular punk house-party band, have been at it since 2008 and have released a slew of singles on hot Canadian underground labels such as Hockey Dad Records (Vancouver) and Debt Offensive (Calgary). Their feedback-soaked tributes to teen years wasted playing in punk bands have long been crowd favorites at their many sweaty and over capacity Vancouver appearances. The band is known for their searing guitar fuzz and sickly sweet vocal melodies backed by the heavy drumming of a hardcore band. They recently signed with Vancouver’s Mint Records for the release of their new record Deserve To Die. The album was recorded at Rain City Recorders with Jesse Gander (Japandroids, White Lung) and captures the live energy of the group while also showcasing their strong melodies and dark but dry lyrics.

A fine album by the Vancouver-based power-trash unit, combining garage-rock with the pop-side of early punk-rock à la Buzzcocks and a west-coast feel. Catchy stuff!
