NEWS ARCHIVE FOR DECEMBER 2012
Seb Rochford teams up with Spoek Mathambo & Jaelee Small
Published 4 December 2012 by BWL


The penultimate single in Sebastian Rochford's Days And Nights At The Takeaway series is already upon us. This month he's recruited the acclaimed South African singer and producer Spoek Mathambo and London-based vocalist Jaelee Small. Seb met Spoek on the recent Africa Express train tour of the UK, on which they performed together.

There’s no doubt 'Time Wave Zero', premiered on okayafrica last week, is one of the best yet, taking the Takeaway off on yet another exhilarating tangent.

Remixer San Gabriel is Los Angeles psychonaut Butchy Fuego (ex-Pit er Pat member who has also worked with Boredoms, M.I.A. and Neutral Milk Hotel). Here he delivers a characteristically dayglo remix of the track that relocates it firmly on the dancefloor.

Stream and purchase the tracks on the Takeaway Bandcamp page.

Efterklang One-Sided LP - available for download at last!
Published 5 December 2012 by BWL


In 2006, Burnt Toast Vinyl made available a three track Efterklang release, part of a series of one-sided LPs.

Since then, One-Sided LP has only ever been available on vinyl, but we've now decided to release it as a download too. We'll be making the release available through iTunes, etc in January, but for now, you can find it exclusively in our shop as mp3s or wavs.

One song on the record, 'Tu Es Mon Image', features the prolific Danish singer Martin Hall, and was originally available on his 2006 album Facsimile. It's accompanied by two exclusive tracks, which feature contributions by Edda Rún Ólafsdóttir and Hildur Àrsælsdóttir of Amiina.

You may be interested to know that the vinyl LP is still available to purchase direct from Burnt Toast.

In case you haven't heard it yet, we highly recommend Efterklang's latest album, Piramida, one of the few long players from 2012 that we all like!

Published 6 December 2012 by BWL


On December 15 Polar Bear will play their first official London show in over a year at Rich Mix. The band will perform a set of new material that will appear on their fifth album, due for release in 2013. Reports from their recent shows in Gateshead and Bristol suggest we're in for a treat!

We can now announce that support for Polar Bear will come from the LV chaps in their new guise as Swami Million. Tickets are selling fast so buy now to avoid disappointment.

Last week Seb took control of the Clash DJ mix and delivered a very diverse fifty minutes of music featuring everything from hip hop and grime to shoegaze and jazz.

volcano! record Daytrotter session
Published 12 December 2012 by BWL


Chicago trio volcano! have recorded a session for influential US music site Daytrotter. The session is available to stream and download now, although you will need to sign up for a trial membership, at least, to hear it. We definitely recommend this as they’ve produced immaculate renditions of tracks from this year's PiƱata album.
