The highly anticipated sophomore album from Jonathan Kawchuk is almost here! Everywhen is the product of collaborating with the atmosphere and sounds of the rocky mountains in Kananaskis, Alberta. It is a harsh, anxious, tactile, heavenly, collage-based work of found sound and vocals, of breath and wind and space. We have pressed 100 copies of a limited edition tan vinyl, and we're offering an LP bundle which includes Kawchuk's 2018 album North. To be released on June 10, 2022. Pre-order your copies now!

Everywhen 
is 
the new album from Canadian wildlife recordist, composer, and vocalist Jonathan Kawchuk. Recorded painstakingly in Dolby Atmos, it is the product of six years of direct relationship with the trees, stones, streams, grasses, grizzly bears, birds, rabbits, elk, and all other things that call the enormous, humbling mountains home. It is at once deeply unsettling and supremely calming. It is inspired by and carries the philosophies of athleticism, transcendental black metal, the unfeeling amorality of nature. Everywhen is not a record about a place. It is a record by a place. 
The mountains with which Kawchuk has collaborated on Everywhen will not exist forever. They may change in a thousand years. The climate crisis may change them much sooner. These are the stakes for Kawchuk:

“If we are so royally unfortunate as to lose them, then I want to have preserved a record of what it felt like to be a person in that place.”
