less frenzy

hello peoples. the frenzy of posting has clearly diminished, partly due to a pleasant few weeks spent in toronto. a few shows with ivan coyote and young anders’ debut in the hogtown scene. all went well, he charmed them all of course. and now what?
well, things are rolling right along. the new duplex album Worser will be released on may 7 with a fun gig at the cultch. and pizza! and i now reveal to you that the new VH record Young Saint Marie will be coming out this summer. this of course is the album of buffy saint marie and neil young songs, recorded with my band and the CBC radio orchestra, respectively. we’ll be giving you the chance to pre-order soon, so that we can whip them off the press and straight into happy little envelopes for you. other news? the craigslist cantata will be performed this summer at the vancouver folk music festival and the salmon arm roots and blues festival. jack pine continues to tour the schools and i get really darling letters from the keener classrooms. very gratifying. i have a little photo project that i’m doing for the DOXA film festival, and christof migone and i are preparing for our first ever live performances of escape songs in montreal and toronto. gosh, it seems a little busy now that i write it all down. wish me luck, i’m off to sleepytime.

  1. that is all incredibly exciting news!! Any chance you’ll be making it to the States to perform, specifically NYC so I can buy a ticket?

  2. Yay! 😉
    *** Raff likes pre-orders (plural)!
    *** Raff asks Veda: “Is this the album you had planned for this year, or is there another one in the offing?”

  3. heyo kari. we’re considering a trip to nyc next feb, to escape from the olympics. fingers crossed…and yes raff, this is the planned album. the neil young has been rerecorded with the riot life ensemble!

  4. Even better! Yay! Basically, new old songs.
    And by Veda and her crew only — meaning they will be flawless this time.

  5. By the way, those Buffy Sainte-Marie covers are some of your best work ever. Your rendition of “Co’dine” gives me shivers. Just beautiful (and very art-y, as usual). This is a great treat.

  6. Very god news. Thanks for the update Veda. I agree with Rafael, the Buffy stuff is fantastic. Cool also to hear studio versions of the Neil Young songs.

  7. Hey there! I was disappeared for a while to finish my thesis, and now I am back to say:

    #1/ ANDERS IS A CUTTTEEE Boy well done hille et famille!

    #2/ Can’t wait to see you in the grand pouts!


  8. great to hear the NY and Buffy songs will be coming out – I really liked that stuff (mind you I could sound like Raf here – Hi Raf – I like it all 🙂
