Ultra Mega’s near-forgotten debut album is a midsummer night’s psychedelic dreamscape.  

Warbling guitars, stabs of organ and 3-part harmonies create a lush backdrop for an impulsive adventure, on which lyricist JD Ormond charts a meandering course.  The album travels in a semi-feverish state, floating between the images that memory and nostalgia have distilled: golden arms, dead dogs, names of past romances, and fleeting conquests.  

Recorded in 2011 at Sonic Backline Studios in Winnipeg by Eusebio Lopez-Aguilar, this long-shelved album is finally rearing its head for folks to see, furthering it as a curious memento of times past.  

Mixed by drummer Aaron Johnston at HMS Arlington, and by Matt Peters at Private Ear Studios (Winnipeg).
