Out March 18th. I'm excited for this one. http://youvechangedrecords.com/shop/ Shotgun Jimmie returns with Field of Trampolines, and it’s a perfect summer album arriving just in time for spring. Recorded at the Eastern end of a cross-Canada tour in August 2015, when Shotgun Jimmie and his band (Winnipeg’s wonderful Human Music) slept under the stars, played rock shows and swam every possible lake. Crowds were surfed. They ate from orchards and cooked by campfire. Field of Trampolines was produced by Joel Plaskett in his Dartmouth, NS studio. Joel is a magician, a musician and a legend. They worked quickly, recording live and mixing fast in a single 4-day session. Joel captured the summer vibes like a glow bug in his bare hands. Here are 10 songs celebrating life’s joys: life on the road (Join The Band), natural phenomena (Solar Array), and camping (Triple Letter Score). There are a series of tributes to Jimmie’s friends and inspirations: The Constantines are saluted in Constantine Believer, Attack In Black in Love Letter, and the legendary Eric’s Trip in Song For Julie, Chris, Rick + Mark. Jimmie’s current life as a student at art school also gets due airtime: “I’m losing sleep over Georgia O’Keefe” he sings in Georgia OK. And as the batteries run down on the nostalgic and entirely wonderful Walkman Battery Bleed, you’ll be looking to flip back to the A side and play it all over again. Field Of Trampolines joins an impressive discography: 5 full length albums since 2007 (including the Polaris Prize nominated Transistor Sister), and split releases with Joel Plaskett, Ladyhawk, and Attack in Black. In 2012, Jimmie appeared on John K. Samson’s Provincial (Epitaph/ANTI) and toured across North America and Europe as Samson’s lead guitarist and opening act.
I want to sell some stuff before the holidays, so I'm going to make a special shipping offers to the many fine VCers here: http://www.discogs.com/seller/raindogtrombone/profile Canadians, $4 shipping for 1LP valued at $10 or more, or $5 for unlimited shipping on all of the stuff I have for sale. Or, even better, pay the Canadian equivalent of what I'm offering in US$ on anything I sell if you pick up in Toronto (except for the Hayden LPs). So, if I'm selling for $10US, you can have it for $10CAD cash.... Americans, $4 shipping for 1LP, $5 shipping for 2 LPs, with maybe $1 more per additional LP. International: $5 shipping for 2 LPs with a total value more than $15. I know that doesn't sound so special, but shipping is hella expensive from Canada. I will gladly take a loss on that to provide you with some nice sounding musics. Deals to be had. I will gladly make some deals if you ask politely. Edit: Also, some gear for cheap (all prices in US, including shipping anywhere in the world) Brainwavz S1 - New in box - $25, another pair used for max 20 hours - $20 Apple Earbuds - New - $15 Shure SRH-840 - Very decent shape, was about to sell to a guy who insisted that the band was loose/broken, and then twisted them all over to show me how loose they were, but honestly I'm pretty sure he did that to try to lower my price, which is annoying, because they are great cans. The fit is still pretty good, but the clamping pressure is probably slightly less than it would be if new. Bits of wearing on the headband where the fake leather meets your head (pics if needed). $85 OBO (trades welcome too). Ortofon 2M Red Stylus only (on a damaged cart) - stylus has maybe 10-12 hours total - $40 Ringmat Developments - Ringmat 330 (kind of a cork slipmat) - I honestly have no idea how to price this. It's this thin slipmat that's apparently really good, except that I have an acrylic platter, and don't really have a use for it. I was given it essentially for free when buying some other gear for someone. Will gladly send this to a good home for pretty much the cost of shipping, or as an add on when buying other LPs. Details about it here: http://www.ringmat.com/products/ringmat.htm $0? Bravo Audio V1 Headphone Amp - Used for maybe 150 hours, give or take. Definitely burned in. Nice sound, great cheap beginner amp (though I will say, it gets very hot). $40.
