This is the new release from Canadian Folk band The Wilderness Of Manitoba. I’m really looking forward to hearing this album in it’s entirety, the two singles i have heard sound great and have a really nice tone throughout.
It’s now available in Canada, but there is no information about puchasing it here in the UK as of yet.
I have always been a massive fan of Villagers, their debut really blew me away, so dark and gloomy. I have been lucky enough to see them twice in the last 2 years, first seeing them support my favourite band Fleet Foxes at the Eden Project in Cornwall, such a perfect location to see such a atmospheric band. The last time i saw them was actually only a few months back supporting Grizzly Bear at Brixton Academy, i was really excited knowing that they would be playing some new material, but unfortunately i was majorly disappointed. I felt that they had lost what made them so special, his voice still sounded as beautiful as always, but the music just didn’t carry it, and all intimacy was lost. I remember coming away with a sort of Bob Dylan at Newport Folk Festival feeling…
But this could change, i wont make too harsh a judgment until i have listened to the album in it’s entirety, which you can now pre-order from HERE, and will be released on the 14th of this month.
There is also a special edition version of the album available, limited to only 500 copies..
”+ SPECIAL EDITION 10” x 10” fabric cover hardback book with silver foil print, containing the album on CD with an exclusive DVD featuring five intimate live performances by Villagers recorded in Ireland”
The Unified Field Issue 01″, a journal and vinyl set available for purchase on September 18, 2012. The 60 page full color journal features contributions from Charles Aaron, Autumn de Wilde, Damien Echols, Maya Hayuk, Gloria Steinem and more. Each journal comes with a limited edition 10″ clear vinyl featuring tracks by Robin Pecknold, Bonnie “Prine” Billy, Dept. of Eagles, Amen Dunes and more.
I need this so bad.
Finally what we have all been waiting for, the new Foals album. It has only been 2 years since Total Life Forever, but it really does feel like it has been forever.
The new album has been named ‘HOLY FIRE’ and it will go on sale on the 11th February, you can pre-order the album HERE right now.
Here is their new single ‘Inhaler’ I think you will be surprised….
I have been waiting a long time for this day. Their debut album Gorilla Manor changed a lot for me, and set the standard very high for their follow up.
The last time i saw them was at the HMV forum in Kentish town, which was their last show of a very long tour.
Sadly in March 2011 Bass player Andy Hamm left Local Natives, but at Leopallooza they announced what everyone was waiting and hoping for, that they had just built a new studio and they were recording the new album.
And now it is ready! ‘Hummingbird’ is going to be released on the 28th January 2013.
Their first single is ‘Breakers’ which you can listen to through the link below, and will also be up for digital download from October 23rd.
They have also announced the tour dates, and they will be playing at Hoxton Bar & Kitchen in London on December 6th. I will be there…Make sure you are too…
