ORIENTEERS REISSUE INSTRUMENTAL EP ON ITUNES - AVAIL THIS MARCH!

In anticipation of their upcoming full-length, Orienteers are re-releasing their self-titled debut instrumental EP, exclusively on iTunes this March. Orienteers, known for their unique, ambient pedal steel guitar-loops, originally released the album in 2009, which, it turns out, is still played every day on radio stations from San Francisco to Norway. The EP includes an unreleased track called "I'm Listening," that captures the spacey, melodic feel of the early tracks. To mark the occassion, the band is also releasing a video for the song "Spiral City Lights" from the EP, made with footage from the European Space Agency! Check it out here!

ANTIQUE ROOM SCORES SHORT FILM, "BLISS" - SCREENING AT OIFF!

Antique Room can now add film scoring to the ol' resume! We're proud to say the short film, "Bliss," by Ottawa's Amanda Sage - which includes an Antique Room score - is screening at this year's Ottawa International Film Festival (OIFF). The film, which examines a series of moments between a dysfunctional young couple, debuted at the Vancouver Island Short Film Festival. The score, composed and recorded by Ben Wilson, is a simple, reflective piece for piano and guitar. Visit amandasage.ca for more info, and watch/hear the short film on Vimeo here!

ORIENTEERS TALK GLUE FUMES AND THE PERILS OF DIY ON THE REVUE!

Ottawa's space-folkies, Orienteers, are clearly looking forward to great(er) new things with their sophomore LP this year. In this interview with The Revue, they talk about the many hazards of self-releasing an album, from glue fumes to printing mistakes to the Canada Post flubs that posed challenges for their debut. All's well that ends well, though, and their quiet performances here of "Epic Advice" and "May-Queen Girl" point to great things to come. Watch both parts of the interview on The Revue website!

NEW ANTIQUE ROOM STUDIO - COME TAKE A LOOK!

The Antique Room studio is a cozy basement space on the cusp of Nepean and Ottawa, hosting anyone and everyone who wants to record and mix projects, from demos to full albums, to soundtracks and commercials. Now, we're thrilled to report it's undergoing a redesign, complete with brand new gear. At the heart of the redesign is a new DAW with exabytes of storage, a full orchestral library and the fastest state-of-the-art processors, running Steinberg's new Cubase 7. The redesign builds on the studio gear collected through the years, that already features class A preamps and a great collection of mics and instruments, including a vintage Ottawa-made upright piano, a 1965 Lowrey Genie organ and a full suite of band stuff.
