WTSH listed Basic Nature’s Circles and Lines among our favorite releases of 2015. The Winnepeg, Manitoba duo of Lizzy Burt and Claire Bones, who call their music “prairiegaze,” have just released an EP called Changes and Static. The label is Dub Ditch Picnic, a sibling enterprise to Winnepeg’s Sundowning Sound Recordings.
“Love Won’t Always Be There” is the lead track on the new EP, which can be purchased digitally on Bandcamp and is available in a limited cassette edition at shows on Basic Nature's tour of western Canada, presently underway. Find tour dates below on one of the coolest tour posters of recent memory.
As an aside of sorts, Lizzie Burt of Basic Nature has put in a soaring quest performance on Viva Non’s track “Arbor”; it's documented in this lovely video. The collaboration appears on Viva Non’s debut full-length, Pure, released earlier this year on the aforementioned Sundowning Sound. We've got our fingers crossed for a Basic Nature debut full-length in 2017.
