February recording updates


We’re really excited to be headed into the studio next week to start recording our first official full-length album! (release date tbd) We’ve got a great collection of songs together and looking forward to hearing some of the early results… Will keep you updated on this front.

We’re also really excited to be on the verge of releasing a split 7″ – a Gertrudes collaboration with PS I Love You with on one side and our friends Bruce Peninsula teaming up with Muskox on the other. It’s been a great project to work on and we’re thrilled with the results thus far. Can’t wait to see it! Hopefully to be available in limited run around the end of March.

Ronnie Hawkins Bucky Award Nomination


Ronnie Hawkins was just nominated as CBC3 Bucky award for “Most Canadian Song”. Yikes. the list of songs/artists is pretty awesome. This version is from Montreal Oct 15 with our friends Lake of Stew. You gotta check out Chris Trimmer’s wild theremin solo near the end. That’s gotta put us over the top! We encourage you to do the good Canadian thing, and go vote! Here’s the link: – Pete
