This may well be the best indie pop/rock album I will ever post on YSKOD of which I am confident none of you have ever heard. Hailing from the small town of Swan River in Manitoba, Canada, Evie (husband and wife duo Rosie and Al, now joined by Jawn) began as a seemingly intentional Eric's Trip copycat in 1996. They've released an armful of homerecorded 4-track cassettes over the years, many of which are apparently still available in that format or on CD-Rs from their website (although I'd contact them first to make sure). In 2001, they self-released this THIRTY song CD, which I picked up for $10 their awesome CD launch at the lovely, rundown, and now sadly soon-to-be-defunct Royal Albert Arms hotel in their new hometown (my old hometown) of Winnipeg. The CD consists of "older 4-track stuff from previous tapes and some re-recorded on a digital 8-track." Do you like Eric's Trip? Elevator (To Hell)? Do you like Slumberland-records style indie pop? Black Tambourine? The Cannannes? What about recent artists like Herman Dune? You do? Whew. You had me scared for a moment there. Well, then, dear sirs and madams, do yourself a favour and check this out.
