VIDEO: Rozi Plain - Conditions

Rozi Plain has released a video for the single Conditions. It’s taken from her superb new LP ‘What A Boost’ that lands this Friday. It was filmed by Edward Tucker on location in Morecambe.

Rozi wrote more about the single on her blog;

Conditions is about hunting for drafts in a well insulated house. Searching for the rooftop without any frost on a freezing day . Wondering about the heating situation. Inside feelings. Outside feelings. We recorded the guitar and drums of this song in LA with Chris Cohen on a day off whilst on tour with This Is The Kit. And then spent the next year adding bits here and there. It was a song I tried to record before that needed a bit of a new prism applied to it. Maybe re-recording a song about minus freezing weather in the 35 degree Californian sun was just what it needed. Warm the place up a bit. Gerard added his synths in Glasgow and I added quite a bit of Jupiter (that I recently acquired) in London. Alabaster dePlume’s saxophone appears right at the end.

VIDEO: DOOMSQUAD - Dorian’s Closet

Toronto’s ardent art-dance sibling trio DOOMSQUAD have shared the video for their new single ‘Dorian’s Closet’, a track honouring legendary drag queen Dorian Corey, best known for her role in the film Paris Is Burning.

Chalk Hill Blue

Released today is Will Burns and Hannah Peel’s quite extraordinary Chalk Hill Blue album. It is Record of the Week at Drift who wrote;

Record of the Week is an album we just adore. Will Burns and Hannah Peel have collaborated for the amazing Rivertones label and their Chalk Hill Blue LP is rare and utterly captivating. Produced by Erland Cooper, it's a record of electronic ruralism, channeling lives threaded through the chalk landscapes of Southern England. Hannah's futuristic electronic minimalism washing around Will's quietly intense poetry.

Read Tom Bolton’s review on The Quietus, and Richard King’s on Caught By The River.

Hannah Peel and poet Will Burns team up for a moving and original record exploring the troubled landscapes of England and the mind
— The Quietus
a record that explores the space of bare horizons, the space between people in various sates of consciousness and the space of an empty head
— Caught By The River

Couldn't be more thrilled to have them playing live for us at Sea Change in our Church. It was in fact one of the very first things we booked.
