As previously mentioned, the Wind-Ups are heading off on a short tour out east. Along the way, we’ll be hitting up Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, and PEI! Our friend James Rush has made this great poster for us, and we’d like to share it with you! You can check out more of Rushie’s work at http://www.jamesdrush.com/tag/james-rush-photography/
Hope you are all taking good care of yourselves. A few reviews have made their way to the internet since we last posted. Check out these kind words from Grayowl Point. Also, here’s a short review from Kerry Doole and New Canadian Music. We are busy rehearsing this weekend and challenging ourselves to get some even newer songs ready for the upcoming performances. Matt again has been busy compiling footage for another video. Check out More Man Came
Well hello out there!
Hope you are enjoying yourselves and hope that you’ve endowed yourselves by giving ‘Yeti Sounds’ a listen. It seems ‘Diane’ has been welcomed into the CBC Radio 3 rotation and gotten a bit of CBC Radio One time. That’s all very good news for us. Exclaim.ca has also taken note of the new release; keep your eyes out for reviews popping up.
Matt just came back from a skip, hop, and a jump across the pond, so the 4 of us are reuniting this weekend to rehearse for the upcoming tour. For all of you who are impatiently waiting the arrival of your Indiegogo exchanges, the wait will soon be over!
Here is the cover art for “Yeti Sounds’. Thanks very much to Errol Richardson for his amazing work. Excitement is building as more dates are being confirmed for the upcoming tour! You can check out some of the listings on our ‘shows’ page. All is well with us more or less. We set out to take some pictures on horseback two weeks back; we didn’t consider the issue that none of us are experienced riders… Both Kiely boys fell off their horses. Dan got knocked off by a branch while we were bushwhacking through the Yeti infested woods of Western Quebec. Marc was thrown from his mustang while running through a grassy rock-studded meadow. Unfortunately, Marc’s fall left him with a trip to the hospital and acknowledgement of a few fractured ribs. Despite all that, Marc is recovering well.
Thanks again to everyone who has contributed to our Indiegogo campaign! We are humbled by all of your support and extremely happy that we were able to hit our target. Discs and packages will be sent out shortly. If you just can’t wait to hear the new songs, they’ve already been made available at our bandcamp page.
We’ll be in touch shortly,
Matt has been busy compiling footage from his first space mission.
Check it out and listen to ‘Haystack’ from our upcoming release, ‘Yeti Sounds’.
We are proud to announce the name of our upcoming release: Yeti Sounds
To ramp up for this new release, Wind-Up Radio Sessions has just added a hyphen to their name to coexist with the times. The flowers are poking through the snow patched soils, and the sun is shining stronger with every day. We’re very excited about our upcoming release and getting tour dates together for the summer.
Talk to you shortly,
P.S. Yeti Sounds…
Hello to all,
Hope you are keeping well. After a short trip to Toronto this past week for Canadian Music Festival, we are seemingly building up our plans for a summer tour and finalizing some plans to release a new EP in the coming months. All of this is coming together amidst busy schedules, and we hope to release an itinerary along with the new songs shortly.
All this to say, to get a bit of a running start, we are looking for your help to get the spring ball rolling. We’ve registered a crowdsourcing fundraiser on Indiegogo:
Take a look at some of the packages we have listed, and let us flower you with gifts so that you can help us get the new EP printed. Please spread the news; every bit helps and we’ll love you long time.
Hey there friends, family, and fans!
WURS would like to wish everyone a slightly belated happy new year, and let you all in on some 2013 news. Firstly, it’s been a while since our last post (October). This is mainly because we’ve been keeping a low profile, hunkering down and working on new material. We’re happy to announce that we have several brand-spanking new songs and we’ll be spending this weekend in Pembroke, Ontario recording them for an as yet untitled EP (release date TBC). We’re all excited to see what happens over the weekend – these songs are some of our best, and we’ll keep everyone updated with our progress. Hopefully we’ll have some pics/clips to share soon.
Our second announcement is that we’ll be playing Canadian Music Week in March. This promises to be a great opportunity to showcase some new material and hit the Toronto festival scene once again! As winter draws to a close and spring rears its head, we’ll no doubt be performing live on a more regular basis. No concrete dates yet, but we’ll update the site with info as and when.
That’s all for now. Keep your ears to the ground little birds!
Wind Up Radio Sessions!
A quick update on last week’s trip out east:
We had a lot of fun playing at the Seahorse and attending some great shows over the few days we were in town. The well-organized and extremely accommodating Pop Explosion made the trip well worth it. Thanks to all for everything! Back home, we are now getting into gear and keeping some momentum going with new song development. The plan is to head back into the studio during the big freeze to have our best album yet, ready for the thaw. We will keep you posted as recording intentions come to fruition.
