Snapped Ankles - Stunning Luxury out now
Published 1 March 2019 by DM

Stunning Luxury is available to the masses!

Snapped Ankles’ second album is here. Bathe in its opulence.

“Snapped Ankles, the best live band in the world right now, return with an album full to bursting point with energy, playfulness and a guaranteed contender for album of the year” 9/10 The 405

“A stridently political album that loses neither its sense of humour nor its capacity for bangers” 4/5 The Skinny

“It’s a danceable, destabilised stew of The Pop Group, Kraftwerk, Can and Liars” Uncut

“Sounds like Mark E Smith fronting a band of malfunctioning dial-up modems” Long Live Vinyl

It’s been quite a week for the woodwose; playing a triumphant sold out show at Oslo in Hackney last night, their single ‘Rechargeable’ landing on the playlist at BBC 6 Music and the Dinked Edition gold vinyl and indie only pink vinyl versions of Stunning Luxury already becoming difficult to come by. Ask nicely at your local record shop. Bring them cake.

You can order Stunning Luxury on black vinyl LP+CD/CD/download on Bandcamp. You'll also find some fetching T-shirt bundles there.

It is available online in the usual places.

Snapped Ankles are on tour now, and have just announced a new London show at Village Underground on October 29th. Book now!

Tune into Marc Riley’s 6 Music show on Wednesday evening (March 6th) for Snaps session action. | Twitter | Facebook | Instagram | Live Dates |

Laurence Pike - new album + single
Published 7 March 2019 by DM

Australian drum maestro, Laurence Pike, has announced his new album Holy Spring and shared first single ‘Drum Chant’. It follows hot on the heels of his debut solo album, 2018’s Distant Early Warning.

As a member of both Triosk and Szun Waves, Pike is woven into the fabric of Leaf, and this is a period of intense creative activity. “The aim for my solo work,” he says, “has been to use technology to expand the sonic potential of the drum kit, without ever limiting the capacity for human expression.” Thematically inspired by the pagan fertility myths of Stravinsky’s Rite Of Spring, Pike developed and assembled the samples (“pieces of a puzzle,” as he puts it) in a single month, and recorded the album live on kit and sampler, in one day.

Holy Spring is released May 17th. It is available to pre-order now on limited edition transparent blue vinyl, black vinyl, CD and download via Bandcamp.

Pike plays album release shows in Sydney, London and Brussels in May. All shows on our live page. | Facebook | Instagram | Live Dates |
