Stanley Brinks & Freschard: on tour with The Wave Pictures

Stanley Brinks & Freschard head out on tour on Friday in support of their new album Pizza Espresso, The Wave Pictures.

Having already released 2 of the best albums of 2014 (Gin on Fika Recordings, and Boom Biddy Boom on wiaiwya) Stanley Brinks & Freschard are releasing Pizza Espresso - an album of duets, and a collaboration between both labels – on the 25th of August.

Pizza Espresso is an album of love songs about drinking and drinking songs about love. Picture Emmylou and Gram relocated to Berlin with a guitar, a pennywhistle and a washboard and writing ten gorgeous duets to be sung on lazy summer evenings.
