I feel like there's not nearly enough love for 1990s Canadian music on vinyl. And so I'm starting this thread for the few of us on here to try to appreciate what, if at all, is currently pressed from this era. I was an avid radio-listening, MuchMusic-watching kid in the mid-late 90s, and have a serious soft spot for a lot of the music from the era. But so little of it is available on vinyl (unless it came from Sloan's murderecords, and even then, most of that is hard to find). Some records that I own/hope to own from this era: Lowest of the Low - Shakespeare My Butt (rerelease) Weeping Tile - Cold Snap (Sarah Harmer's old band - I love this one) Hayden - Everything I Long For Hayden - The Closer I get (rerelease) Rheostatics - Whale Music (rerelease) Sloan - One Chord to Another (someday I will own this - though I've heard they're working on a reissue?) Local Rabbits - Kombinator Change of Heart - 82-97 (recent compilation, but easily the worst mastered recorded I've heard in a long time) There is a bunch more out there, but so much I wish I had on vinyl, like early treble charger, Thrush Hermit, and probably some other bands I feel a bit nostalgic for, like I Mother Earth, Moist, etc. Anyone else have some good 90s Canadian vinyl?
Looks like a 20th anniversary of Moving Careful is on its way with added bonus material. From Hardwood Records: Hardwood Records will release the second piece in its 20th Anniversary Vinyl Series with Hayden’s Moving Careful on March 9, 2018 on digital and limited edition vinyl formats. This vinyl is the first pressing since the original 10” and features the original EP from 1996 with added rare recordings from 7” singles released between 1994 and 1996. “After touring my debut, Everything I Long For, across Canada for the better part of two years from 1994-96, I celebrated its imminent International release by developing a strong dislike for the sound of my music. A major sticking point in my negotiations with Outpost Recordings (my US label at the time) was to have the ability to release singles and EPs on my own or through smaller labels. They agreed, and Moving Careful was born from late night obsessions on the third floor of a rented Victorian house in Toronto. Although much of my debut was recorded on a 4-track cassette, I was eager to get back to my Yamaha MT100 II, and very inspired by what Eric’s Trip and Lou Barlow were doing at the time.” Moving Careful was released on Hardwood/Sonic Unyon in late 1996. Side Two of this 20th Anniversary edition also includes home recordings from the time period, things that Hayden had tucked away and found homes on Canadian Indies like Lunamoth, Landspeed and Squirtgun. Side One: Pots and Pans Stride Middle of July Old Fashioned Way Half For Me Choking You are All I Have Side Two: A Fortune I’d Kept Hazy I Wake Up With Me Mild Winter Trip Carry On Mentality Wasting My Days Away
From June 7-10, Records will be only $1 (plus shipping) with code vcfriends!!!!!! https://danielfield.bandcamp.com/album/in-the-violet-hours Hey everyone! I made a record! I am really proud to share the preorder on vinyl and tape of my upcoming album, In The Violet Hours, which will be released digitally and on cassette on December 1, and on vinyl in April. Both cassette and vinyl are limited to 100 copies each, and I'm making the prices really really low to entice folks to pick up copies. Records are $5 plus shipping (about $7 to anywhere in the world, which is about as cheap as it gets from Canada). Tapes are $1 shipped). Listen to the whole album for free! PM me if you want a download code - I have lots! http://danielfield.bandcamp.com In The Violet Hours contains 11 original songs about love, grammar, and oral hygiene, written between 2002 and 2015. The album was recorded predominantly in the nook adjacent to my kitchen, in short intervals while my toddler slept. I played every instrument except for violin, and sang all songs, with some help from my wife and friends. I was heavily influenced by many of my musical heroes, including Paul Westerberg, Hayden, Elvis Costello, Mark Kozelek, and Ryan Adams. The album came to fruition to exist on vinyl through a surprise 30th birthday gift last year, where my friends basically crowdfunded the money to put my music on wax (!). While entirely home-recorded, the album was professionally mastered at the Lacquer Channel in Toronto. Update March 18: still waiting on vinyl. Hopefully early April. But as of now, my album is streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Tidal, etc. Give it a listen! April 10 Update: Records have finally landed after close to 8 months. Shipping now. $5 + shipping, and come with a free cassette copy.
Not sure if this will be really cool or a waste of plastic...
