May 20 street date. REPRESS! New pressing has an alternate "negative version" of the cover and is pressed on 180g black vinyl. Part interstellar ear-worms, part sonic experimentations, Don’t Think You Can Escape Your Purpose sees Yoo Doo Right relentlessly chase, and successfully capture, the very essence of their craft, resulting in layered bombastic tracks ranging from mechanical krautrock to audacious space rock, aiming to push the barriers of guitar music. Following months spent touring, including a massive North American tour as openers for legendary Japanese rockers, Acid Mothers Temple, YDR retreated to the studio to work on a debut album. Recorded between Montreal and Quebec City, Don’t Think You Can Escape Your Purpose proved another rewarding challenge for the three piece, again aiming for new sonic horizons and pushing the krautrock, shoegaze and post-rock genres towards their ill-defined, proverbial “limits”. The production spanned several weeks, harnessing the band’s vision alongside engineers Sebastien Fournier (Avec Le Soleil Sortant De Sa Bouche, Panopticon Eyelids, No Negative) at Hotel2Tango, and Guillaume Chiasson (Ponctuation, Jesuslesfilles, Double Date With Death) at Le Pantoum, with Harris Newman (Wolf Parade, A Silver Mt. Zion, We Are Wolves) taking on mastering duties again.
June 10 street date. After premiering its tracks for hometown fans inside the dome at Société des arts technologiques de Montréal in the Summer of 2020, post-everything outfit Yoo Doo Right knew there was but one way to record A Murmur, Boundless To The East: live off-the-floor at world-famous studio Hotel2Tango. To help achieve this vision, the musicians called upon acclaimed record producer, Radwan Ghazi Moumneh (Suuns, Ought, Fly Pan Am), who deftly printed forty-five minutes of gritty experimental rock. Though dynamics and depth were always core elements in Yoo Doo Right’s music, A Murmur, Boundless To The East reaffirms the notion that the spectrum of sound is in fact infinite. Also thanks to the work of celebrated engineer Seth Manchester, tasked with mixing the opus at Machines With Magnets (Battles, Lightning Bolt, Lingua Ignota) in Pawtucket (RI), as well as that of Matthew Barnhart (FACS, Destroyer, METZ) at Chicago Mastering Services, fans of extremes in music are served with a long-player that fascinates and lingers. Also featuring inspired contributions from innovative violin player, Jessica Moss (Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra & Tralala Band, Black Ox Orkestar), to compliment percussion, bass, guitar, synthesizers and vocals, A Murmur, Boundless To The East is a must-have for fans of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, My Bloody Valentine, METZ, etc.
