Guelph-based music collective Out of Sound looks to independentt documentarians from the late ’80s and early ’90s for inspiration and it seems that some of the artists on their latest compilation have done the same. Taking cues from labels like Dischord and K, Out of Sound conducts the admirable task of collecting the work of busy and emerging musicians from around Canada and offers them equal billing on one record. While folks like Forest City Lovers, Richard Laviolette and Hot Kid offer up some wonderful previously available tracks, there are many unfamiliar names here and their contributions make this an eclectic affair. “Your Outline” by Guelph’s Ha is infused with the same spirit that guided the Cancon folk rock boom that bred the Northern Pikes. On the other hand, Halifax’s Down With the Butterfly channel the indie punk of Archers of Loaf on “Two Stories.” “Six” is a dreamy does of math-y, instro-rock by Guelph’s Proeliis Fere, who seem inspired by Burn Rome in a Dream. Halifax’s the Memories Attack channel an early Patrick Pentland-penned Sloan song with the hazy grunge of “Murmur.” Hillsburgh’s Discount Orchestra offer the plaintive folk/country of “The Longest Day,” while Vancouver’s Lowfalls write the poppy theme song for a non-existent TV show called “The Daily Life.” With 20 songs from emerging artists, this comp is somewhat uneven but it’s a commendable effort by Out of Sound.

Bio

The six headed hydra known as You Yourselves hails from the most royal
of cities, Guelph, Ontario. Despite experiencing a number of lineup
changes since the bands inception in 2005, the now solidified lineup
performs an abraisive brand of indie rock. They showcase the
verstility inherent in the genre by amalgamating punk aesthetic with
hook laden dual vocals and a plethora of diverse musical influences.
Lead by vocalists Brian Gillis and Jon Gazendam (who also plays
keys), the musical onslaught is proudly accompanied by the pulsating
beats of Luke McCarter, the devestating bass licks of his brother
Reid, and the dual guitar attack of Mr. Jon F. Law and Chris
McCintosh.
The noises made by these six individuals culminate to create
what the band refers to as "spy rock," a sound which although is
contemporary in its aggressive nature, still holds a facet of
setimentality, paying homage to a plethora of musical forms from the
years of yore.
The eccentric and uber enertgetic set provided by You Yourselves
has left many a dancefloor devestated, and they are simply awaiting an
oppurtunity to demolish a room full of ears in ANY town near you.
