Elrichman • On The Nose • 2020



We had tips from The Line Of Best Fit for earlier single releases – I'm not sure if you're affiliated with Paul's stuff already, but this new album follows 2014's Young, Healthy and Wonderful as well as Paul's more recent material as part of Goosebump (previously called Germaphobes) and Ducks Unlimited (where he plays bass). Emerging from the same scene as Kiwi Jr, Ducks Unlimited, etc, the new record packs in a wealth of Toronto-based talent too – Alex Gamble takes production duties (Fucked Up, Alvvays) with further contributions coming from Zach Bines (Weaves) and Jon Pappo (Hooded Fang), as well as the Boston-based Anh Phung (Twisted Pine).


"That sly shift of one letter in his surname should give you a hint at the project’s cunning sense of humor, keeping listeners on their toes with wily winks hidden behind vividly realized art-rock played with a straight face”
– Aquarium Drunkard

"Elrichman’s roughly strummed guitar is undercut sweetly by the softness of his voice... scintillating string arrangements"
– The Line Of Best Fit
