Edmonton dance-punk sextet Shout Out Out Out Out has been one of my most cherished musical gems ever since my older brother introduced them to me back in '06. Their eccentric brand of electronic music felt so unique, with an eclectic quality that took influence from vastly differing genres and brought the sounds together in an addictive and cohesive way. From their debut full-length Not Saying/Just Saying, to their sophomore effort Reintegration Time, to this year's Spanish Moss and Total Loss, the band rarely disappoints.
Late last month, Shout Out Out Out Out teamed up with Vancouver producer Teen Daze for a split 12" remix-swap, where the former remixed a song by the latter, and vice versa. The result is a four-song release, comprised of Shout Out Out Out Out's "Now That I've Given Up Hope, I Feel Much Better", Teen Daze's "Bluest Water" and remixes of both. Scion A/V took the opportunity to promote the 12" with a release party in Teen Daze's (almost) hometown of Vancouver as part of Olio Festival. It was here that I had the chance to chat with Shout Out Out Out Out members Jason Troock and Nik Kozub, where we discussed their collab with Teen Daze, the importance of remixing, as well as their newest album Spanish Moss and Total Loss. Check out the full interview below, along with a stream of the split 12" remix-swap.
