New album from Vancouver-based 3 piece do-it-together lo-fi no-wave experimental pop band, OK Vancouver OK! Follow up to the "Food Shelter Water" album.
It's their 9th full length album, 2nd cassette tape on Lost Sound Tapes. After lots of solo 4-track recordings, the past two albums have been recorded with meticulous care by Eli Moore (LAKE) and the band on Whidbey Island in Washington state. The surroundings and sounds from the album make many appearances in form of sound collage and photography from the recording session. Each song has its own "Influences", try to figure out what they are. I don't even know all of them for sure, so don't ask me, just make your own assumptions and guesses. 0
These songs take a less directly political approach than their album "Food Shelter Water" did and exchanges it with a clearly humanistic approach to songwriting and outlook on the world. Jeff and Laura of OK Vancouver OK recently had a baby and this seems like a direct influence on the album, especially on the song "Collection Of Changes".
Side A contains the full album "Influences", while the Side B is a composite of demos, outtakes and alternate versions. Over 80 minutes complete running time. That's a lot of music.
First edition of 100 copies. CLEAR RED cassette tape w/ hand stamped seafoam colored labels.
