It’s Listen Friday – on a Saturday!
We’ve had a busy week so didn’t quite make the self-imposed deadline yesterday but ace new music stops for no man (woman, or child) so we’re just sliding in a day late. You’ll forgive us when you hear our picks this week.
What were we busy with? Oh you know, stuff.
Pet Crow pre-orders (get yours here – we’ll be back at the Post Office Monday) – they play Cardiff tonight and London tomorrow. You Want Fox ramping up for their single release on 10 March – hear them on BBC Introducing chatting to Dean Jackson tonight. Announcing Riding The Low have joined our roster. Getting ready for Batteries, Grey Hairs and Blackmail Box in Derby tomorrow.
Anyway – here’s this week’s music. Follow us on Twitter and hashtag #LF for weekly recommendations.
Listen Friday – 16 February 2017
Pet Crow – Pressure Sores
It should be no surprise to you that we love this band. They are currently out on UK tour and having released their album digitally last week the vinyl will officially be out this coming week, 24 February (order yours here). They also dropped this amazing video last week which we are all heart eyes over.
SeiSui – Lerina
Another track from this Derby nu-gaze duo dropped recently and while they’ve lost the spoken word vocal they’ve retained the My Bloody Valentine feels. And made us worried about accidentally waking up in an alternative universe, so thanks for that SeiSui.
Nelson Can – Miracle
LIINES supported Dutch trio Nelson Can some time back and so we’re pleased to hear them back, and signed to the wonderful Alcopop Records. Looking forward to more from this band as they plan to release an EP through the label. Disco-tinged post punk; it’s a thing.
Batteries – Wah! Kinder
Noise-pop project from Sci-Fi Steven of Bis, now two albums deep and playing Derby for us tomorrow night (with Grey Hairs and Blackmail Box). We hope they play this one tomorrow. Tickets on the door and details here.
Riding The Low – Heed
Very pleased to welcome another new addition to the Reckless Yes family in the shape of alt-rock titans Riding The Low. They played for us last summer and we’ve been eager to work with each other ever since. You’ll recognise frontman Paddy Considine as he’s been in some films and TV things and if you love Guided By Voices you’ll love Riding The Low.
Rilo Kiley – Portions for Foxes
Is there ever a bad time to hear this song? No, no there is not. Alt-pop perfection.
