Second instalment of Seb Rochford's singles club
Published 20 February 2012 by RM

The second instalment of Sebastian Rochford's 2012 singles club, Days And Nights At The Takeaway, is released this Friday (February 24).

The new track, 'Faint Eligible Remains', is a collaboration between the Polar Bear bandleader/drummer and multi-talented London-based composer/producer/musician Leo Abrahams. Seb and Leo composed the track using a unique instrument called a Luminist Garden. It's an incredible, intuitive looping soundboard device that creates a fascinating sound miles away from the hip hop groove of last months single, Love A Sacred Path.

As with all the singles in the series, the piece is backed with a brilliant remix, this time by fellow Polar Bear and Acoustic Ladyland-founder Pete Wareham. You can stream the tracks below and buy from our shop from Friday.

AU release live video & Euro dates
Published 22 February 2012 by BWL

AU begin touring their new album in their native USA later this week, and the Portland duo have just announced a set of European dates - their first in three years - to follow the release of Both Lights on April 2. There are more to come (including UK shows) so keep your eyes peeled on our live page.

A brilliant live version of the first single from the album, 'Solid Gold', was filmed by Oregon collective Into The Woods late last year. Under the series banner 'Feels Like Home' AU core members Luke Wyland and Dana Valatka were joined in the latter's old living room by a backing band of local musicians, some of whom (including vocalist Holland Andrews) feature on Both Lights. We have copies of the 'Solid Gold' yellow 7" in our shop and you can still download the mp3 for free from our Soundcloud.

Speaking of freebies, AU have just set up a mailing list and in return for your email address they will give you a free download of single B-side 'under/Epic (feat. Colin Stetson)'. What are you waiting for? Hop over to their Bandcamp now!
