Daniel Romano’s Ancient Shapes is the sound of punk rock, power pop, and psychedelic garage. It’s a solo recording project and a ripping and well-dressed live band. It’s a collage of spontaneous poetry and repurposed graphic design. The foul debris of late capitalism fuels alien engines. A hummingbird sits on barbed wire. Flowers bloom between the cracks. Insects crawl across the moon. Hopelessness and hope form a perfect sphere.
Hailing from Nova Scotia, Nap Eyes makes crooked, literate guitar pop refracted through the gray Halifax rain. Recorded live to tape with no overdubs, their songs are equal parts shambling and sophisticated, with one eye on the dirt and one trained on the starry firmament, inhabiting a skewed world where odes to NASA and the Earth’s magnetic field coexist easily with lyrics about insomnia and drinking too much.
Steven Lambke sets poetic words to minimal, guitar based music. The song is a human ritual, enacted and re-enacted in the void. Love is a word hung before the infinite space beyond the reach of our words. It sways like a curtain on the light breeze. Steven Lambke and Daniel Romano co-founded You’ve Changed Records in 2009. Steven Lambke is also a member of the Constantines: young hearts be free tonight.
