Greville Tapes Music Club’s Second Session Features Julie Doiron & Nancy Pants

Greville Tapes Music Club Media Release

gtmcOne amazing space, two artists, and four days to come together to make some magic; the old world charm of the Sub Pop Singles Club and the modern reach of the Daytrotter sessions, but with a Canadian twist.

The second session in the Greville Tapes Music Club series will bring together East Coast songstress Julie Doiron (Sackville), and Montreal lo-fi pop-rockers Nancy Pants. They’re meeting for the first time in the Quarantine, a farmhouse studio in Port Greville, Nova Scotia, on January 31st, 2016. Under the care and tutelage of Quarantine head honchos Colleen Collins and Dave Trenaman (who together form duo Construction & Destruction), the two groups will work for four days to create a collaborative recording. Each artist brings two original compositions to the table, and over the course of four days will write, rewrite, and record the tracks, having the process documented by a New Brunswick based filmmaker.

Freshly mastered versions of the inaugural Greville Tapes Music Club session, featuring Art Rock-n-Roll trio Motherhood (Fredericton) and blues harp aficionado Catriona Sturton (Ottawa) are now available on bandcamp: In December 2015, Motherhood & Catriona Sturton were the guinea pigs for the project that Nancy Pants & Julie will embark on.
In the coming year we plan to undertake a minimum of four such sessions. Through Monopolized Records (Saint John, NB), all original content generated will be available as 12” vinyl releases, digital, and film versions over the course of the year (and cassettes, of course!). Content will also be available through traditional online outlets (Youtube, itunes, Bandcamp, Spotify) and record shops. We’re pleased to partner with Pop Montreal for exclusive previews and debuts of content. With a concerted effort to promote each individual session, band and brand, the common thread of beautiful Port Greville and the spirit of collaboration will stitch the Greville Tapes Music Club together.
As more content and sessions unfold,  new guest producers, videographers, and visual artists will be incorporated, expanding the concept and reach of the project. As each contributing artist dives in, we look forward to seeing new love bloom and unique Canadian content created.

Stay tuned for more details about the next sessions of the Greville Tapes Music Club, which will see garage rockers Little You Little Me (Saint John) join underground legend Eamon McGrath (Toronto), with more sessions announced in the coming months.


At the end of the session, Julie & Nancy Pants will embark on a small tour in support of the new recording, which will be logged to a limited edition cassette, hand-duplicated at the Quarantine.
