Montreal duo Yardlets, aka Sam Goldberg Jr. (Uncut/Broken Social Scene/Hawaii/Kandle & The Krooks) and Jeff Edwards (Shot While Hunting), have released a video for their single, Baby Deer – watch it via YouTube below.
On the recording of ‘Good Hangs’, Goldberg Jr., who also produced the album, said, “With our first album, ‘Middle Ages,’ we recorded as fast and shittily as possible with no-redo’s of takes allowed, and went for a Buddy Holly-on-speed vibe with everything doused in fuzz and gasoline. ‘Good Hangs’ took a bit longer, two-years actually. The concept was more along the lines of what would the villains in Mad Max and the replicants of Blade Runner sound like if they started a band and then threw a dash of bad 80’s gated reverb on everything.”
Yardlets will support the album with Canadian dates in May – see the list below. They are also working on setting up some U.S. dates later this year.
