Founded in late 2010 by childhood friends Bryan Buss and Jordan Bassi after attending the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA. Although instrumental, their idealisms and morals regarding Animal Liberation and Social Awareness are displayed heavily into their album art, song titles, T-shirt designs and online presence. Despite the bands inherent punk-rock spirit, the music plays in contrast with its melodic and positive nature.
By 2013 Jung People had played 90+ gigs across Canada and opened for artists such as Crystal Castles, Olafur Arnolds, BRAIDS, Rene Hell and Pick A Piper along with playing 2013’s SXSW Austin, TX and Canadian Music Week in Toronto, CA.
Jung People have recently recorded their first full length studio album entitled ‘Gold Bristle’ produced by Howard Bilerman (Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Arcade Fire)
Gold Bristle is the golden pig of the Norse god Freyr, and is one of the only moments in history where a pig has been glorified in good deed.
This story follows a carousal of pigs through their journey of innocence and their unknown fate. Breathing fact into the lungs of legend, a golden pig is born, who sings the hiding gospel of certainty, and liberates his friends and family into wilderness, the original home.
Pigeon Breeders are an experimental trio that formed in 2011. Noted as being “one of the more meditative crown-jewels of Edmonton’s experimental/free-improv scene” (Weird Canada), their performances have been described as “gently unsettling washes of sound … intelligent, beautiful sonic art” (Oliver Arditi).
The group’s live collaborators include Jung People, Connor O’Brien (Flint, ex-Fuck the Tundra), Brooklyn-based avant-trumpteter Nate Wooley, and local filmmaker Lyndsay McIntyre. To date, they have put out six releases, four of which are on the local Ramshackle Day Parade experimental music label.
