…..news letter #558 – the new guy…..

howdy all,

hope you got some kite flying in this week, as the weather has been perfect! anyway, not a very big list this week, flowing last week’s mega list. but still a few choice items. also, you should drop in this weekend and meet the latest member of the listen team, christian!

…..pick of the week…..

peace – the world is too much with us – suicide squeeze – lp
– super stoked for these once local guys! they were never peace in town, but they moved to vancouver and have released an ep and an lp on local labels and now find themselves signed to suicide squeeze! congrats boys! “peace recorded its sophomore lp in pamela anderson’s hometown, a fogged-in hamlet named ladysmith on the east coast of vancouver island. the world is too much with us builds on the depth and drama latent in peace’s sound. connor’s bass-lines menace and hypnotize. mike’s guitar solos explode suddenly in wah-pedal freak-outs. geoff’s tom-toms thud with a tribal intensity. and dan’s lyrics, for which he’s been referred to as vancouver’s “post-punk poet laureate”, alternate between images of defiant despair and love-sick yearning.”
