Nancy Elizabeth Covers The Smiths
Published 23 August 2010 by BWL

Nancy Elizabeth has two shows in September with fellow Manchester-based artists Homelife and Denis Jones, and to promote this Arctic Circle have teamed up with Manchester record label Humble Soul to bring you a mini album of exclusive tracks under the banner 'Outer Circle'.

Nancy has chosen 'Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want' by The Smiths and the release also includes Jones' rendition of John Mayall.

Outer Circle is built around the idea of discovering unsung heroes and ground-breaking artists for a series of exciting concerts in prestigious venues.

We have copies of the compilation on CD in our shop, more info here:

Wildbirds & Peacedrums Perform Björk Cover On Swedish TV
Published 31 August 2010 by BWL

Wildbirds & Peacedrums performed a cover of Björk's 'Human Behaviour' at the prestigious Polar Music Prize ceremony in Stockholm last night. The Icelandic star was named as a Laureate for 2010, along with soundtrack composer Ennio Morricone. Both were in attendance to receive their awards, presented by King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden.

Mariam and Andreas were joined by a full orchestra for the rendition of one of Björk's most popular songs, taken from the album Debut. You can see the full ceremony as it went out, including performances by Robyn and Ane Brun, on Swedish TV here (50 mins in).

And on youtube:

In stark contrast to the glitzy Swedish event, in September last year the couple recorded a 'Take-Away Show' session in New York for French video site La Blogotheque, which has just been released. Filmed at the legendary Gleason's Gym (Robert DeNiro trained here leading up to his appearance in Raging Bull) in New York, Mariam and Andreas perform 'Today/Tomorrow' and 'My Heart', whilst an outtake video shows a performance of 'There Is No Light'. All three tracks are taken from last year's album, The Snake. Here is the link:,5598

The band's third album, Rivers, was released last week. The pair embark on a European tour 'with Voices' at the beginning of October. See all the dates here.
