Recording: You'll Never Get To Heaven

Artist: You'll Never Get To Heaven

Song: unknown*

Recorded at The Garrison (Wavelength Winter Festival 18 – Night 3), February 18, 2018.

You'll Never Get To Heaven - unknown

This year's Wavelength birthday celebration was more restrained than usual, sticking to one venue for three nights and having no extra daytime activities. That left the work of transforming the events to something more than just a "regular" night at a show to scene-setters like General Chaos and Roxanne Ignatius. The festival's final night was the most musically eclectic, the acts connected by an exploratory thread.

Since seeing them at the Wavelength festival four years previously, YNGtH seem to have shifted from a standing up vibe to a sitting down one. That seemed to go hand-in-hand with moving the musical energy to a different point on the musical spectrum — away from dream pop and further toward staight-up ambient. There were more shades, then, of Slow Attack Ensemble (Chuck Blazevic's other project) as the gentle sounds generated by him and Alice Hansen sounded like hazy abstractions of the songs that populate the pair's recordings.

* Does anyone know the title to this one? Please leave a comment!

[The next Wavelength Festival is already on the distant horizon, with Camp Wavelength once more contained to the mainland and landing at Garrison Common on August 18th and 19th. Meanwhile, the next few monthly shows, co-productions (as well as a cool Toronto Post-Punk in the Early '80s Music Talk) are all announced.]
