Hey folks! Been out of the loop here for a few months, but haven’t been idle – assisting with some Fuxa shows, releasing a solo EP, and collaborating/playing drums on some I Am Your Captain recordings. I’m currently wrapping up the July podcast/e-zine due out in a few days, but in the meantime, here’s what’s going down:
You Walk Through Walls LP
Formed in the wake of the dissolution of England’s Air Formation, You Walk Through Walls features AF veterans Matt Bartram and James Harrison, with Harry Irving covering bass. They’ve just completed the follow-up to their debut 10″ (2012’s Destroyed Places), which is available for pre-order through Club AC30, to be officially released on July 21st. YWTW’s sound is reminiscent of AF, and “spans the psych-pop genre’s darkness and light, set off with Matt Bartram’s soft, understated vocals”. Below is the video for the kick-off single, “Gone In A Day” – available on July 7.
Ghost Box “Other Voices” Series
I cannot wait for this one! Straight from the Belbury Parish Magazine: “The new series of singles by regular Ghost Box artists and some very exciting guests commences later this month. The series is called Other Voices and kicks off with a collaboration between Sean O’Hagan of the High Llamas and Jon Brooks of The Advisory Circle.” You can pre-order the single now, or wait till it comes out on July 28 – though they may be all gone. For now, here’s a snippet:
Diverging from the band Landing, multi-instrumentalists Aaron Snow and Daron Gardner spawned Tinniens late last year, and are taking their sounds on the road in early July. They’re playing Brooklyn tonight (@ Union Pool), then moving on to: Philadelphia, Asheville, Lynchburg (VA), Atlanta, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Detroit, and Fort Plain (NY). Venues and tour dates are available on their Facebook page. To get you psyched, here’s a video from their recent show in New Haven:
