Following on from their triumphant UK tour, there are two Polar Bear radio appearances coming up this week. Their masterful set at XOYO in London was recorded for Jazz On 3. You can listen to it this evening on BBC Radio 3 from 11pm and you will be able to stream it from here for a week after.
Tomorrow evening Jamie Cullum will be airing a specially recorded session from Maida Vale. His show goes out at 7pm on BBC Radio 2 and it will be available to stream here from Wednesday. Polar Bear you are really spoiling us.
Third Rail has recently been added to their list of summer festival dates:
Melt Yourself Down - Record Store Day LP
Published 09 April, 2014 by DM
Melt Yourself Down will be gracing this year’s Record Store Day with the explosive Live At The New Empowering Church LP. Recorded late last year at their sold out London show, it is a ragged and raw document of the band at their frenzied best. “The house band from hell,” live in the house of God.
We are unleashing just nine hundred precious copies on the world. It comes housed in a new day-glo variant of the already iconic MYD artwork and packaged with a download code. To get your hands on one, visit your friendly local independent record store on Saturday April 19.
Here is a newly uploaded video of the band live from Trans Musicales last year to whet your appetite.
Polar Bear - In Each And Every One album stream
Published 21 March, 2014 by DM
“It not only brims with startling invention, but is likely to put them on the map as go-to soundtrackers of urban-life melancholy, alongside the likes of not-so anonymous beat trafficker Burial and Brian Eno-collaborator Jon Hopkins”
"With this record, Rochford has elevated new ground in both ambition and scope, offering a monumental 70-minute journey of puzzling jazz experimentation”
Drowned in Sound
The band is currently touring the UK, with a stop in Leeds tonight. Manchester reports suggest they are on scintillating form and a spot of car trouble can’t keep a good band down.

Julia Kent Route Du Rock live video and London shows
Published 13 March, 2014 by DM More French television delights for you, this time in the form of Julia Kent’s beautiful haunting set from Route Du Rock Hiver. La Chapelle Saint-Sauveur, Saint-Malo provides a fitting atmospheric backdrop to Julia’s moving performance.
Just to remind you that there are two Julia Kent shows coming up in London next week. Some cities get all the luck. They are both part of William Basinski's Arcadia curated series, which also features the likes of Michael Gira, Charlemagne Palestine and Janek Schaefer, and runs until March 20. The first gig is a headline show and takes place at the new ACE Hotel London Shoreditch on Tuesday March 18. The following night, the Canadian musician joins Icelandic composer and Bedroom Community founder Valgeir Sigurðsson at Village Underground. (Unfortunately we've just received word that the Village Underground show has been cancelled.)
