Leaning Trees Records, the love child of local music—lifer Kaley Evans, has arrived. The upstart Saskatoon-based label has yielded an excellent first impression, with two standout releases; a split cassette from Caves (Peter Grier)/Stephen Cooley, and a Feral Children two-track hand numbered 7” vinyl single. Evans officially created the label last year, but is now gaining steam as Spring fever has past, and the Summer heat is upon us. If this is any indication, we’ll be seeing a lot more superb music from the label in the near future.
As for the label's creator, Evans is very much embedded into the local music scene, as he's among the crowd at essentially every live show in Saskatoon. He has also brought his dry wit and musical prowess on-air here at CFCR, previously hosting the Monday edition of the RCMP program. Evans will be debuting a new show shortly, airing every Thursday from 10 — 11pm, so make sure you’re tuned to 90.5FM.
Keep tabs on the label at the official blog/website HERE. While you’re at it, feel free to hit up the Leaning Trees WEBSTORE. If online transactions scare you, head down to the Vinyl Diner on Broadway to snag the goods live and in person. We hear that Evans punches a time card there as well!
