Well it’s been an exciting week for Polar Bear, hasn’t it? Following the incredibly exciting news of the band’s second Barclaycard Mercury Prize shortlist for In Each And Every One, we now have a hallucinatory live video for ‘Chotpot’. The footage was filmed at the band’s sold out album launch show at London’s XOYO back in April, meticulously edited and warped by Jacek Zmarz, who also made the colourful ‘Be Free’ video.
The band are playing live this autumn, see all of their confirmed shows on our live page.
20th anniversary vinyl reissues
Published 11 September, 2014 by Tony Morley
It’s The Leaf Label’s 20th anniversary in 2015 (doesn’t seem like 5 minutes since Leaf Is 10...), and we’re gearing up for some special releases and events throughout next year.
We’re planning to make a number of long out-of-print releases available on vinyl again (or in some cases, for the very first time), and we’d love to know what you’d like to see back in the racks. We’ve drawn up a hypothetical shortlist, and by the magic of internets we’ve created a poll for you to register your interest.
Tick as many boxes as you like, and click through to see the latest results of the poll. We can't commit to any of these releases right now, but your feedback will definitely influence our decisions.
Thanks for your time!
