Every Day And All At Once

I spent five days in Vancouver in July 2010, and picked up a handful of records, this is one of the many.

Jasper Sloan Yip’s debut record1 Every Day And All At Once is is foray into sugar-laced pop folk music. It starts off with the bouncy and fun “Kiddo” which sets a perfect tone for the entire record. With a nice mix of guitar and banjo, ukulele and violin, drums, bass and keyboard, Yip’s creates a nice playful sound that where all the instruments balance off one another without overpowering the others.

Yip’s style reminds me of a gentle Elvis Costello, and perhaps for a local Toronto appeal, a bit of Steve Singh.

“Key cuts” as we used to call them in the Being There days would be “Back and Forth and To and Fro,” “Kiddo,” “Shell,” and “Slowly.”
