P572 Souvenirs 2018 !?

P572 + 2018 !
C’est déjà la fin de 2018. 12 mois de bricolage, de découvertes musicales et de grandes idées. C’était étrange, intense et expérimental. Comme d’habitude, à la vitesse de croisière no stress de P572, sans essayer de rivaliser avec quiconque, mais en créant quelque chose d’important avec les amis.

De quoi on se souvient en 2018? Oromocto Diamond a fait 16 shows en 16 jours en tournée Euro Solo Tour. Ensuite, il y a eu l’enregistrement de la session live du Quebec Social Club. Après deux ans de design et de douane, le vinyle holographique d’Alaclair Ensemble est enfin sorti, en collaboration avec 7ieme Ciel. Lesbo Vrouven était en tournée cet automne, pour jouer des nouvelles chansons et celles de l’édition vinyle d’Encore la mort. Son prochain disque s’appellera D _ _ _ _ G _ _ _ D _ _ _ _ _ . La Team Pochette (Sam Murdock et Gab Pelletier) a passé toute l’année sur le visuel d’albums d’artistes incroyables comme Claude Bégin, Koriass et Jérôme 50. Sans oublier quelques parutions digitales bizarres et quelques cartes postales sur Punkest Tardo et Mutefakemusic.

En 2019, ce sera les 15 ans de P572, la petite compagnie de disque de Limoilou. On va fouiller dans les archives et les souvenirs pour faire un livre. On va aussi mettre aux enchères des tests pressing et des trucs rares. Et comme si ce n’était pas assez magique, il y aura de la nouvelle musique de la part de Headache24, Lesbo Vrouven, Oromocto Diamond, L’orchestre d’hommes-orchestres, Fourche, Rotting Ebitan, Vice & V.I.Street, Recyclage, (swedish) Death Polka, Billy Wilf…

P572 + 2018? There goes another year. 12 months of arts and crafts, musical discoveries and big ideas. It went by in a weird and experimental way. P572 has its own speed these days. But it’s always been like that really. Not trying to compete with anyone else, but making our own small yet important path.

Here are some of our 2018 highlights: There were the 16 shows in 16 days on the Euro Solo Tour for Oromocto Diamond. Then the Pantoum Quebec Social Club live recording session. After spending two years on the design we finally put together, in collaboration with 7ième Ciel, the holographic Alaclair Ensemble deluxe double LP. Lesbo Vrouven was on tour in the fall playing new songs and celebrating the vinyl release of their 2008 LP Encore la mort. Their new album will be called D _ _ _ _ G _ _ _ D _ _ _ _ _ . Team Pochette (Sam Murdock + Gab Pelletier) were busy all year long creating album art for many wonderful artists like Claude Bégin, Koriass and Jérôme 50. There were also some low key, but no less special, postcard and digital releases on Mutefakemusic and Punkest Tardo.

2019 will be the 15th year of the small independent label that is P572. We will be digging deep into the archives to make a book, and to find some rare items and test pressings for auction. You will also hear new music from the likes of Headache24, Lesbo Vrouven, Oromocto Diamond, L’orchestre d’hommes-orchestres, Fourche, Rotting Ebitan, Vice & V.I.Street, Recyclage, (swedish) Death Polka, Billy Wilf, amongst others…

VINYL MISSION STATEMENT

IN THESE TIMES OF NEARLY UNLIMITED ACCESS TO ALL THE MUSIC IN THE WORLD, WE’VE COME TO APPRECIATE THE VALUE AND BEAUTY OF THE PHYSICAL OBJECT. OUR STORE’S FOCUS IS ON PRESENTING THESE ITEMS TO YOU. VINYL HAS RETURNED TO BEING A PRIORITY FOR US – NOT JUST FOR THE WARMTH OF THE SOUND, BUT THE INTERACTION IT DEMANDS FROM THE LISTENER. THE CANVAS OF ARTWORK, THE WEIGHT OF THE RECORD, THE SMELL OF THE VINYL, THE DROPPING OF THE NEEDLE, THE DIFFICULTY OF SKIPPING TRACKS, THE CHANGING OF SIDES, THE SECRETS HIDDEN WITHIN, AND HAVING A PHYSICAL OBJECT THAT EXISTS IN THE REAL WORLD WITH YOU… ALL PART OF THE EXPERIENCE AND MAGIC.

DIGITAL FORMATS AND STREAMING ARE GREAT AND CERTAINLY CONVENIENT, BUT THE IDEAL WAY I’D HOPE A LISTENER EXPERIENCE MY MUSIC IS TO GRAB A GREAT SET OF HEADPHONES, SIT WITH THE VINYL, DROP THE NEEDLE, HOLD THE JACKET IN YOUR HANDS LOOKING AT THE ARTWORK (WITH YOUR FUCKING PHONE TURNED OFF) AND GO ON A JOURNEY WITH ME.
