"Though it carries with it a mix of emotions, You Say Party’s XXXX is an album worth celebrating and remembering ten years on." - Dominionated (2019)
"YSP!WSD! have similarly overhauled themselves for XXXX. Comfortable now on gentle, prettily sung slow-burners like "Heart of Gold" as well as on throttling, thickly percussive barnburners like "Cosmic Wanship Avengers", YSP!WSD! have made something unexpectedly tender out of darkly colored and often heavily propulsive material." - Pitchfork (2010)
Paper Bag Vintage is thrilled to reissue You Say Party's acclaimed 2009 album XXXX on limited edition, crystal clear vinyl. We have just 120 copies available exclusively from our online shop.
In honour of the 10 year anniversary of their career-shifting and life-altering album, West Coast celebrated dance punk darlings You Say Party are reissuing XXXX via Paper Bag Vintage. Written at the peak of their career, XXXX would become their most mature and ambitious, (and, in hindsight, heart-wrenching) release. Winner of the Western Canadian Music Award for Best Rock Album of the year and longlisted for the coveted Polaris Music Prize, the album has been remastered by Troy Glessner at S.P.E.C.T.R.E. with new artwork from guitarist Derek Adam.
