What Goes On - Loudhailer Update
January went like this
elbow launched a film for album track 'Fly Boy Blue / Lunette'
Then they followed it up with a video for the single, 'New York Morning' featuring Dennis and Lois of NYC music scene fame. Soup Collective's finest for them to date I would suggest
The album, 'The Take Off and Landing of Everything' is out March 10th.
There's a new beer as well, called Charge. We had a little party for it last week at The Eagle in Salford. It's very drinkable.
Slowdive reformed. The web went potty. It was very gratifying for all kinds of reasons, mostly because I have known Neil and Rachel since Mojave 3 / 4AD days and it was nice to see their first band get the recognition it deserves. And, no, there aren't many places on the list for the show on May 19th. ;-)
Loudhailer started working with Deer Shed Festival, a grand boutique event up in North Yorkshire which is already way popular but now has added Johnny Marr to its undoubted delights. Fucking Johnny Marr. Headlining. That's a July highlight right there
Balthazar announced a date in London at the Hoxton Bar & Kitchen on Feb 27th and a new single, 'Leipzig'. As great as anything on 'Rats', which we all know is great yeah?, looking forward to seeing a band that impress live every time.
Tom Hickox came to London with Lindi Ortega and played a spellbinding set. The debut album is a Loudhailer fave of early 2014.
The Twang are gearing up to go on tour before the release of new album. 'NEONTWANG' in March. New single 'Larry Lizard' is a blinder
The Anchoress launched a debut single with a play from Steve Lamacq on 6 Music. Video for 'What Goes On' soon.
And Towns land in London tomorrow to play Antidotes at The Old Blue Last.
expect this kind of thing
