Recording: Tough Age

Artist: Tough Age

Songs: Everyday Life + Shame

Recorded at The Dupe Shop, October 7, 2017.

Tough Age - Everyday Life

Tough Age - Shame

Tough Age celebrated this first full-length from the Toronto incarnation of the band with a pair of format-specific release shows, with a Friday jam for the vinyl and this Saturday afternoon excursion for the cassette. Like a tape, this in-store sound was a bit more lo-fi but it perfectly suited the tunes. Featuring Clean-style jangly propulsion, the Shame album sounds at points like a Flying Nun comp of bands that somehow never made it big outside of their Dunedin basements. (If you're not sure, this is high praise.)
