"Lighten up. You’re making ‘Happy Hour’ bitterly ironic.”

- Moe Szyslak

Once a solo project of Christopher Casuga, Fake Canadian first emerged as a San Jose-based trio. In 2021, Christopher moved to Sacramento, joining with Howard Ingerman on bass and vocals, and Jordan Solomon on drums. They quickly honed in on their signature sound, a melange of angular, stick-and-poke guitars jangling from 90s Sloan and Sebadoh records, vibrant McCartney-esque basslines, and powerful, thoughtfully-composed drumming inspired by Death Cab for Cutie and Rush. Casuga’s lyrical and vocal delivery is a celebration of wistfulness against the power of lucidity, bringing together the exuberance of Bruce Springsteen, the sardonic wordplay of Elvis Costello, and the bittersweet melancholy of Alex Chilton.

Fleeting Moments is the first recording featuring the Sacramento-based trio, on the heels of the self-recorded 2020 releases I Do Not Miss The Future and Togetherness. Pristinely engineered and mixed by Kowloon Walled City’s Scott Evans, Fleeting Moments is an exploration of regret, blown chances, and the impermanence of moments we all wish would linger longer; its raging undercurrent exploding through its outlandish surface.
