Wildbirds & Peacedrums are back
Published 4 August 2014 by DM

Wildbirds & Peacedrums return with their first new material in four years; lean, hungry and defiant. New album Rhythm is the fierce, singular vision of husband and wife duo Mariam Wallentin and Andreas Werliin. Stripping back the layers, they’ve captured an unblinking directness and taut muscularity honed from years of intense live shows.

It’s appropriate that 'The Offbeat' is the first track to be released from Rhythm. There is power and confidence in its minimal execution; a simple statement of intent. The provocative video, edited by Jacek Zmarz, fuses the primal elements of rhythm and desire inherent in the song. Watch on Youtube or Vimeo.

‘The Offbeat’ is released today, and is available to download for free.

Rhythm is released November 3rd and is available to pre-order from their new Bandcamp page and the Leaf store on CD, digital and limited edition vinyl LP + CD.

ATTENTION! We're changing how the office playlist works. Instead of a separate monthly playlist we're starting a rolling Spotify playlist (or 'The Leaf Label's Office Radio' if you will). Go here and hit Follow to keep abreast of what's floating our musical boat.

We will continue to publish what we have added to the playlist in our mailouts and on our Blog page.

We're starting with a special summer treat: more than three hours of magic, the best things we've been listening to in the last couple of months. It goes a little something like this:
