Wextra: B.A. Johnston, Shearing Pinx, Spesh K and other almost local and former locals who are putting out music sometime soon.

Spesh K, 90209

Shearing Pinx, Weaponry (Divorce)

Limited edition with art by Rick White features “a classic, demento-tuned twin guitar battle where a nonchalant vocal delivery squares off against the drum set’s muscular fake jazz-jizz-isms.” September 25.


B.A. Johnston, I Was a Young Man Once (Just Friends)

Ask and you guys shall receive a greatest-hits collection from the early career of everyone’s favourite snotty song man. September 29

Play Guitar, TBA (Noyes/Coraille)

A vinyl-only 12-inch jointly released on Noyes and German label Coraille.

Aidan Baker/Noveller (Divorce)

Another limited edition that you’ll want to get your hands on, as the guitars are “warped so hard they dissolve into pure consciousness.” October 23


Grand Trine (Divorce)

Pre-order your limited edition copy of Montreal heavy psych; Divorce hasn't released anything” this (astro) punk in years.” November 13
