Snapped Ankles new album - Stunning Luxury
Published 21 November, 2018 by DM

Snapped Ankles have been working undercover. They emerged from the undergrowth, whispered something about being tailed, and then handed us their new album. Snaps have taken on the guise of the very agents of their community’s demise – the property developers and brokers who heat the market on the promise of Stunning Luxury. With their adopted warehouse habitat under constant threat, the woodwose have taken this sharp-suited incarnation in order to infiltrate. The resistance starts here.

Stunning Luxury will be released March 1st. It comes in a number of Snaptastic variants. Are you sitting comfortably? Pre-order on CD, black vinyl LP+CD or neon pink LP+CD. All these are available on the Leaf Shop or Bandcamp, where you’ll also find a fetching T-shirt bundle. In addition there will be a high luxury gold vinyl Dinked Edition, exclusively available via select independent UK record shops.

Hey! Snaps live. Drink it in.

Julia Kent - new album + single
Published 01 November, 2018 by DM

Julia Kent has announced her elegant fifth solo album Temporal with the release of first single ‘Imbalance’. It was premiered last night on Mary Anne Hobbs’ 6 Music Recommends show, which you can listen back to here.

Following the dissonance and tension of her previous album for Leaf, 2015’s Asperities, Temporal is a meditation on the transitory and fragile nature of existence. Plaintive cello lines floating over metronomic rhythms echo the passage of time, and the emotions that can evoke.

Of the track ‘Imbalance’, Julia says: “I hope it conveys my profound sense of unease with the state of things right now. It seems, at least from my perspective, as though we are completely out of equilibrium with one another as humans, as a society, and with our environment”.

Temporal will be released January 25th. It is available to pre-order now on CD, black vinyl LP + CD and limited edition white vinyl LP + CD on the Leaf Shop and Bandcamp. There are a number of T-shirt bundles available on Bandcamp too.

Julia will be joining pianist Poppy Ackroyd on the bill at EartH in London on February 12th.
