Published Nov 06, 2020Fresh off the collaborative LP from Shabason, Krgovich & Harris, Vancouver songwriter Nicholas Krgovich is back with another album. The covers collection Pasadena Afternoon will be released digitally and on cassette December 4 via Moone Records.
The album was recorded in a single day this past February. It features a one-off band Krgovich assembled for a show opening for Chris Cohen. The small ensemble — who are billed here as Nicholas Krgovich & Friends — learned a handful of cover songs written by Veda Hille, Marker Starling, Lake, Little Wings, Dear Nora, Ruth Garbus and Chris Cohen. These tunes make up Pasadena Afternoon's nine-song tracklist.
Krgovich said in a statement, "I'm so glad we made this thing! It feels good to celebrate the work of your friends, and to make something so easy breezy. Hope you like it!"
The songs were recorded by Phil Hartunian at Tropico Beauty in Glendale, CA. It was mixed by Jordan Koop at the Noise Floor on BC's Gabriola Island.
