A variety of out-of-print titles from the back catalogue. These releases were originally issued on CD-R or cassette and generally original from our former life in indie-rock. Contrary to our spiel regarding submissions on our about page requesting “punk-pop” or “garage-rock” bands steer well clear of us, below is mostly just that. Also “singer-songwriters” or some combination.

Nicole Gauthier – Abandonment (2008)
Haunted with naked honesty, Abandonment is the debut album from Toronto singer/songwriter Nicole Gauthier. With one foot in the confessional folk puddle, a toe in a tub of acid folk and an ankle in a river of roots/americana, Nicole weaves 14 songs out of the threads of love, loss, death and renewal. It took eight long hard years of family deaths (including the suicide of her brother, “Perpetual Winter”) and heartbreak (“Again”; “40”; “An Ocean Away”) for Nicole to write Abandonment. The result is worth the labour as its punch-in-the-gut realism makes the “confessional” songs of others seem like mere sugar-coated fairytales.
