Days and Nights at the Takeaway hits the halfway point
Published 2 July 2012 by BWL

Sebastian Rochford has joined forces with British Bengali sarod player Soumik Datta for June's edition of his singles club Days And Nights At The Takeaway. This epic, slowly unravelling piece, entitled 'In Slow City', is partnered with a rework by fellow Acoustic Ladyland member, bassist Ruth Goller.

Ruth Goller's rework has transformed the original into a charmingly peculiar Syd Barrett-like song.

A stream of the tracks was premiered on Songlines' blog last week. All of the tracks from this series are available to stream and buy on the project's Bandcamp.

Published 18 July 2012 by BWL

Deerhoof have remixed AU's 'Solid Gold' from this year's Both Lights LP and you can listen and download the song for free from the player below. This is the second time the San Franciscan group have reworked a Leaf song following their tremendous version of Wildbirds & Peacedrums' ''My Heart' (you can stream this in our shop) a few years ago. The 'Solid Gold' remix will appear on a very limited 7" released by the Portland bar Dig A Pony, alongside a track by fellow Oregoners Pure Bathing Culture. More information and details of a launch party can be found here.

AU start a North American tour on Friday, full listings on our live page. We're hoping to bring the energetic duo back to Europe before the year is out, so watch this space...

July's Takeaway single, plus six month bundle
Published 30 July 2012 by BWL

The July edition of Sebastian Rochford's Days And Nights At The Takeaway singles club sees him collaborate with US jazz pianist Jason Moran.

The intriguing ‘Years’ takes a slightly different approach to previous releases in the Takeaway series, with Seb rearranging and layering percussion over an improvised piece by Moran. Instead of a remix, the second track is Moran’s original improvisation, giving a real insight into Seb's working process.

Moran’s innovative approach has garnered much acclaim since he emerged in the late ‘90s. His work for Blue Note and his group The Bandwagon and others has cemented a reputation as one of the finest jazz musicians working today.

The new single is available to stream and purchase on the Takeaway Bandcamp page or via the premiere on London Jazz.

They've also just released a digital bundle featuring all 12 tracks from the first six months of the series at a discounted price. Get it here.
