Lab Coast is a band from Calgary, formed in late 2008 by David Laing and Chris Dadge (Jay Crocker, Bug Incision, Phil Withers, Bent Spoon Duo, Lorrie Matheson, etc). After a year’s worth of home recordings (“a ramshackle channelling of 90s junk-pop” says Jesse Locke on Weird Canada) were amassed, Dice Parks (Ox, Jane Vain & The Dark Matter) and Scott Munro (Ghostkeeper, Chad van Gaalen, Gunther) joined the band. Their first album, Wilding was initially self-released, and is currently in print through Scotch Tapes. Over the summer of 2010, the band recorded two songs for a split 7” EP with Extra Happy Ghost, which was released to critical acclaim on Saved By Vinyl. Their most recent collection of songs is about to be released by Portland’s Eggy Records.
Since their live debut in December 2009, they’ve played a bunch of shows and plan to play more, and continue recording their songs. FFWD Weekly has written of their “effortlessly appealing pop songs” and Coke Machine Glow believes that their split was “one of the most uncomplicatedly enjoyable releases I’ve heard all year”.
“…some of the best hooks to come out of the city of Calgary in a long time.”
Paul Lawton on LC/EHG split 7” for Still Single
“…a ramshackle channeling of 1990s junk-pop.”
Jesse Locke on Wilding for Weird Canada
“This is a band who sound like they just love playing together, while managing to find, seemingly by happy coincidence, that something extra – pin-sharp melody – in their music.”
Jon Lymer on Wilding for Suitcase Orchestra
“…sounds at times like Sic Alps if they were from Calgary.”
