Polar Bear With Jyager Announce New Mini-Album And Download
Published 8 September 2010 by BWL

Polar Bear release a mini-album, Common Ground, this October to coincide with their latest UK tour (see dates here). PB's Sebastian Rochford snatched samples from a vinyl copy of the group's acclaimed fourth album, Peepers, and built new tracks from the ground up, in collaboration with UK MC Jyager. The results are remarkable, demonstrating a hitherto hidden side to Rochford's skills. Rochford and Jyager initially teamed up earlier this year for a BBC session which also featured Chartwell Dutiro and Leo Abrahams.

We are offering the track 'Enterprize' as a free download to our mailing list subscribers. To download, sign up or log in here:

You can preorder the mini-album on CD or limited edition vinyl here - we will be shipping these out as soon as we have stock. Downloads will be available for purchase a couple of weeks before the official release date of October 18.

Jyager will be joining forces with Polar Bear for two shows at this year's London Jazz Festival

Polar Bear Video Session & Mixtape
Published 29 September 2010 by BWL

Polar Bear recorded a video session with collaborator Jyager at The Queen Of Hoxton in London recently. This was the first ever live performance of the two tracks taken from upcoming mini-album Common Ground (released October 25). Here are the videos:

Seb Rochford, Polar Bear's mainman, has made his second mixtape following the popular mix you can find here. Rochford told The Quietus a little bit about how he came to be working with Jyager and his love of hip-hop and grime, which you can read while listening to the new mix, right here.

Polar Bear begin their latest UK tour this week, see all the dates here.

Common Ground is available to buy now from our shop. CDs are shipping now (they won't be in the shops til October 25), and you can pre-order the vinyl with free downloads to go now. The band will also be selling the CDs on the UK tour.

Exclusive Wildbirds & Peacedrums Download
Published 30 September 2010 by BWL

We are giving subscribers to The Leaf Label's mailing list the opportunity to download an exclusive remix of the Wildbirds & Peacedrums track 'Fight For Me'. The duo's first shows 'with Voices' outside of the UK begin this weekend (all dates here), and we urge you to check the shows out - you won't regret it!

Vancouver-based producer, DJ and founder of Lighta! Sound, Michael Red, approached Wildbirds & Peacedrums in August with his minimal remix of the Rivers album track under his artist name mred, and we liked it so much we thought we'd give you the chance to hear it.
