THE WEATHER STATION • Duets single series

by  |  February 11, 2013

Okay, so maybe a collection of singles isn’t exactly the same thing as a record, but how could this not be something I’d highly recommend anyone who’ll listen to me?

Tamara Lindeman of The Weather Station has embarked on an open-ended series of two song singles being billed as The Weather Station Duets Series from You’ve Changed Records.  Lindeman is collaborating with her favourite fellow songwriters and some very good friends, the first three of which are You’ve Changed Records’ founders Daniel Romano, Baby Eagle (Steve Lambke) and Marine Dreams (Ian Kehoe).  The singles will be available through the normal digital outlets, and will come as a series of stunning postcards featuring black and white photographs by photographer/filmmaker Colin Medley and a short text by Lindeman that discusses the particulars of each collaboration.

“It is always a joy to me to think of friends, their lives, conversations, moments we have shared,” says Lindeman about the project.  “And then too, to think on their music, how it illuminates and shapes them, rising above and out of strange flows and eddies of their own peculiar hearts… And so when I travel, and people compliment what I do, I always want to introduce them to my friends. And I began this project in part to make those introductions. I also began it to simply to have fun, to learn from those I consider to be the best, to make less lonely that lonely process of writing songs.” 

Future collaborators in the series will include Will Kidman (of Constantines, Woolly Leaves, and the Proud Mothers), Simone Schmidt (of Fiver, The Highest Order, and One Hundred Dollars), Matt Cully (of Bruce Peninsula), Misha Bower (of Bruce Peninsula), and Ryan Driver (of Ryan Driver, The Silt, and Deep Dark United).
