Les Jupes - News http://headinthesand.ca/ Les Jupes Thu, 18 Dec 2014 19:25:05 CST Les Jupes: Intro Version out May 6 w/ USA & Canadian tour
Introversion came out of the juxtoposition of this winter. On one hand you didn’t want to walk outside or talk to anyone and you just want to hole up and pack it in and quit everything and do your best to fight off the cynicism and self-questioning, so you start going a little stir crazy and are ready to pop. Introversion also sort of picks up where Sky Ferreira’s original Nobody Asked Me leaves off. It’s a breakup song, but if you put that aside and just focus on that one title line, it’s such a poignant expression of isolation and frustration and abandonment.

And there's tour dates to match:

May 8 > Chicago > Township
May 9 > Minneapolis > Riverswest
May 10 > Bloomington IN > Bear's Place
May 11 > Pittsburgh > Thunderbird
May 14 > Brooklyn > Silent Barn
May 16 > Manhattan > Piano's (8 pm)
May 17 > Burlington VT > Radio Bean
May 18 > Montreal > Divan Orange
May 19 > Toronto > The Piston
May 21 > Minneapolis > Turf Club
May 23 > Winnipeg > WECC (Bands vs Filmmakers)
June 16 > Winnipeg > Jazz Winnipeg @ Union Sound Hall (supporting Timber Timbre)

Les Jupes: Oshima - The Age Of Shapes: Free download
DOWNLOAD THE AGE OF SHAPES FOR FREE HERE

Where do songs go to die? Ideally, the good ones don’t. The good ones will always find a way to survive. For Les Jupes frontman Michael P Falk, Oshima is the revival of songs written that didn’t always fit the ambitious rock arrangements of Les Jupes. Songs he thought were too intimate to share with the public. “I’m trying to become more comfortable with allowing listeners in to some of my more quiet and vulnerable moments,” says Mike.

Oshima began through a week of initial recording sessions with Twilight Hotel's Dave Quanbury. Sifting through Mike’s grab bag of half-finished songs Quanbury picked the ideas he liked the best, and together they collaborated on arrangements and brought the once dead songs into existence. Several live-off-the-floor takes from those sessions have even made it into the final versions. Mike says, "Dave is such a talented musician and skilled arranger. We have a long history of collaboration and running new songs past each other. Our aesthetics differ sometimes, but we share a love of song-craft and have a deep mutual respect for each other's skills."

Developing slowly throughout the following year, the album was completed with the addition of Curtis Nowosad's drums and vocals from Keri Latimer (Nathan) and Jaymie Friesen (From Giants).
