Yves Jarvis Releases New Album 'The Same But By Different Means'

Yves Jarvis is thrilled to release his new album The Same But By Different Means today via ANTI- Records.

As Jon Pareles of The New York Times said, the music is “a rumination on ‘constant change’ that’s secure in its own fragility.” Filmed in director Tamás Wormser’s airy Montreal loft, watch Yves’s new music video for the track “Talking or Listening?” HERE.  



Yves Jarvis is a clean slate, a recasting of Montreal-based musician Jean-Sebastian Audet who formerly went by the moniker Un Blonde. Each aspect of Audet’s work is immensely personal, and Yves Jarvis reflects this literally. Yves is Audet’s middle name, while Jarvis is his mother’s last name. With this new album, Audet continues to create music that is at once warm, haunting, and unfamiliar while remaining singularly inviting and kind—a mélange that reflects both comfort and its counterpart.

The Same But By Different Means is a record that builds a delightful, imaginative framework from which to explore what it means to be Yves Jarvis. Jarvis not only painted the self-portrait that is now the album’s cover but he also personally played all 10+ instruments that are heard on the album. Songs on the record range from 14 seconds long to over eight minutes and the record’s title is itself a step further: with each new project, Audet adds a word to the title. “This year is my transition into Yves Jarvis where I’m not only widening the scope, but deepening the picture altogether.”

Yves Jarvis will be performing at the Pop Montreal Showcase at SXSW this year, taking place on March 15. He will also be joining fellow Montreal singer songwriter Homeshake on tour this month; all upcoming dates are below.
