New single “Birds” from Enderby’s Room out now

17 Mar

The latest single from Enderby’s Room is out today! Birds is taken from their forthcoming debut album, and was premiered over at For The Rabbits yesterday. Here’s what they had to say about it:

The track is a delicate piece of gently unfurling minimalism, led by a lightly plucked acoustic, and the steady pulse of a double-bass; it’s left to the vocals to carry much of the melodic content. Thankfully in guest vocalist, Deerful’s Emma Winston, they’ve the perfect foil, while Emma’s own music exists in the field of electronic-pop, here she demonstrates herself an equally adept folk-singer. Emma’s silvery vocal effortlessly carrying the quiet melancholy of Dan’s words, as she sings of the natural migration of our avian visitors, “they’re preparing to leave this land and head somewhere warmer, far from our crystal winter“. It’s a song that knows we must all fly the nest at some point, but even in that inevitability, there’s still a sense of trepidation and sadness and what me way lose along the way.

The whole track builds to a quiet crescendo, as Dan and a third voice, belonging to Sophie Koonin, join to provide delightfully harmonious, counter melodies, and the rich, weezing tones of a Victorian pedal harmonium add a touch of depth, before the whole thing fades to fluttering bird song. It’s an exquisitely delivered, and vivid piece of songwriting, and the strongest case yet for just how good Enderby’s Room’s album could be.

‘Better Friends’ from Bill Botting & The Two Drink Minimums out now!

10 Mar

While Bill is 40,000ft up in the air*, moving his family back to Australia, we’re releasing his first album since Allo Darlin’s triumphant finale. Everyone’s favourite bass-player-with-moustache-come-charismatic-front-man (McCartney, Lemmy, nah!) has made an album simply described as indie mixed with country, or country mixed with indie. Or like if Lou Reed went to a Linda Ronstadt Concert in 1988 and decided to have a change of direction. It’s an absolute cracker – just as you’d expect from Bill, and his assembled backing band cherry picking members from The Wave Pictures, Tigercats, Hefner and Owl & Mouse.

Better Friends is available on blue 12″ vinyl, CD and digitally. You can buy a copy from us via our online shop, from your local record shop, and from all the usual digital outlets (Spotify/iTunes/etc).

*literally, by my calculations he’ll be over Eastern Europe as the album is released in the UK, and by the time he lands it’ll be out worldwide and have been out in Australia for all of a day
