GERMAN IMPORT - Things Done and Left Undone is the new full length album from Vancouver based Jonathan Inc. out on Arctic Rodeo Recordings, the follow up to the critically acclaimed albums Waiting For Morning and Transient and last year s Halfway To A Better Place EP, the album marks a signifi cant evolution in songcraft. The melodies dig deeper and the album is both more densely layered and spacious than anything that precede it while still retaining the moody atmospheric pieces and glistening pop hinted at on Halfway To A Better Place . Things Done and Left Undone was recorded in fits and starts over the course of about 14 months in a few different locations and with more contributors than previous releases. The initial bed tracks were recorded over a week in the summer of 2002 with colin stewart (p:ano, destroyer, jerk with a bomb) and then it was taken back to jonathan s studio, buena vista, to add layers of shimmering guitars, strings, buzzing synths, vibes, harmonies and keyboards. The tracks swelled, then reduced and then were finally sifted into their places through much tinkering and trial and error. Songs were sped up, slowed down, scrapped and re-recorded. The resulting album is the bands strongest and most refined release to date, simmering with euphoric beauty ( Reading Between the Lines of an Empty Page , Bitter Seed ) and shifting emotional undercurrents ( Never Tell , There is no Sound ). Counting among their fans some of Canada s finest songwriters including John K. Sampson (Weakerthans), Mike Feuerstack (Snailhouse, The Wooden Stars), Christine Fellows, and Kevin Kane (ex- The Grapes Of Wrath), Jonathan Inc. continue to gain momentum organically through slowly building word of mouth, powerfully dynamic live shows and increasing press and distribution. The past year has seen the band secure national as well as european distribution, play on canadian national radio (cbc) and solid reviews through the press and online music zines. The band has also shared the stage with Josh Rouse, Joseph Arthur, Richard Buckner, Victoria Williams, the Fembots, A Northern Chorus and Radiogram both in Vancouver and across Canada as well as touring Germany twice. The new year will see Jonathan Inc. playing shows throughout western canada and beyond. Jonathan Inc. began in 1996 as a solo vehicle for Jonathan s songs and has since distilled itself into a band. Twice nominated for Georgia Straight music awards, the busy multi-instrumentalist is also a founding member of theinternationally acclaimed Radiogram and has toured extensively with them across Canada and The United Kingdom. Anderson has also become one of the Lower Mainland s most prolific producers working out of his studio, Buena Vista Audio. Besides Jonathan Inc., Anderson has recently produced albums for Maplewood Lane, Stabilo, In Medias Res, Jack Harlan and Hinterland.
