NEW FROM DIVORCE
YOU'LL NEVER GET TO HEAVEN - S/T LP
You'll Never Get to Heaven is the stunning new ambient, electronic pop project by partners Chuck Blazevic and Alice Hansen of London, Ontario. Chuck has been creating abstract electronic music for years under both his own name and the tag Dreamsploitation, so it is no surprise to hear such beautiful washes of tone and melody on this new album. Most of the source material is taken from early 20th century classical and ‘70s dub vinyl, with decade’s worth of scratches and dirt beautifully processed into flourishes of swirling texture. Alice's delicate vocals emerge from this ambient fog to guide these tracks through a dream of pop music long forgotten here at DIVORCE. >>more

Recorded in a remote region of the Western Alps, this latest LP navigates especially tranquil territory as it builds blissed-out pastoral mirages, dappled just slightly with glimmers of an outer darkness. >>more

The OBEY Convention Music and Arts Society is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to offering a venue in Halifax for local and international experimenting artists. We do not focus on a particular genre, instead, we look to showcase music and art of all kinds that explore new ideas and challenge assumptions. Our audiences see punk, jazz, new classical, noise, electronic, indie, folk, visual art, installation art, video, film and more—sometimes all on the same bill. The only consistent theme is a spirit of adventure and innovation. Although active throughout the year, we mainly focus on presenting the OBEY Convention festival each spring.

Some of our past performers and artists include Eric Copeland, Bill Orcutt, Gary War, Bloodshot Bill, Heather Rappard, The Soupcans, Pierre Bastien, Amen Dunes, Paul Metzger, Jerry Granelli, Aidan Baker, Nadja, Noveller, Shearing Pinx, You'll Never Get to Heaven, Lisa Lipton, Bastard Noise, Career Suicide, Tyvek, Us Girls, Slim Twig, Gown, Dirty Beaches, Homostupids, Yo Rodeo, Robert Drisdelle, Cosmetics, Amanda Dawn Christie, Craig Leonard, Torso, Metz, Dog Day, Jacqueline Lachance, d'Eon and many more.
