Re-live the magic of summer 2004. We’ve posted our debut album, The Pink Ghosts in its entirety on Soundcloud. Enjoy! Virtually every non-commercial release is being posted this week, so keep checking back.
Starting today, we are uploading all The Acorn releases, eps, b-sides to soundcloud! First up, the first EP released under Drei Eichel Musik a xmas gift to friends in 2003.
Herd Magazine is possibly the sexiest Ottawa-based magazine to hit the stands in recent years. I was lucky enough to be featured in their recent 2nd issue, talking about my love for Ottawa’s arts scene, Arboretum Arts Festival, and naturally, ye olde Acorn.
Here’s the HerdMag session taped a few weeks ago in anticipation of tonight’s show. “Rapids (Mère de les chaudières)” is a song-in-progress from the upcoming album “Vieux Loup”. It features Adam Saikaley on keys, Pat Johnson on drums, and Jordan Howard on guitar. Enjoi. - rk
Those Born Ruffians. Those guys! I was lucky enough to have a chance to remix Nova Leigh, the 2nd single from their 2010 album “Say It”. I really love Luke Lalonde’s sense of melody; it’s acrobatic and totally playful. I decided to strip everything away, cut the song’s meter in half, and work from his melody up.
Our peeps at Paper Bag Records have posted the remix. Enjoi. - rk
Sometimes the world works in strange ways. My friend, the harmonica virtuoso (you heard me) Catriona Sturton, lately only talks to me about 2 things: Harmonica mods, and NASHVILLE, an ABC tv series about country songwriters in said city.
Low and behold, one of the show’s stars is an Acorn fan, and boom, our song “I Made The Law" from our 2010 album No Ghost will appear in tonight’s episode. YEE-HAW!!
