p:ano takes chamber pop to a whole new level on their 2nd release, The Den. Part musical, part homey confessional, The Den is unquestionably a masterpiece. Guest musicians include Veda Hille, Torsten Muller, and members of Jerk with a Bomb/Black Mountain, Beans, Gaze, and Standing Wave. Vancouver's P:ano is a young band of whippersnappers--Nick Krgovich and Larissa Loyva have been playing together since 1999 (when Nick was in high school!). Their debut release, When It's Dark and It's Summer (zum014/hfr001) was recorded at and co-released by Hive Studios , home to many Vancouver greats. Same goes with their amazing follow-up, The Den, with main recording sessions at the Western Front. Both albums feature prominent Vancouver musicians like Veda Hille and Torston Muller and members of Beans, Gaze, Standing Wave and Jerk With a Bomb. They have contributed songs to Acuarela Songs 2 and the accompanying CD to the book Sunny, as well as a remix for Radio Berlin's Sister Sounds. P:ano side-projects include Burquitlam Plaza, Boring, Secret Three, Parks and Rec, Micronice, To Bad Catholics, and A Luna Red and they've played with bands like the Microphones/Mount Eerie, Album Leaf, American Analog Set, Blood Brothers, Xiu Xiu, Divine Comedy, and Pedro the Lion.
