THE LEFT OUTSIDES - Album im Mai
THE LEFT OUTSIDES, die wir auf NONPOP schon besprochen haben, bringen im Mai ihr neues Album heraus (Vorbestellung). Hier die umfassenden Infos:
Album release: The Left Outsides - The Shape of Things to Come (Dawn Bird Records).
Release date: Friday 15th May.
Mixed by Martin Noble of British Sea Power and Graham Sutton of Bark Psychosis
Featuring former members of Eighteenth Day of May and Saloon.
Band member Alison also plays with Plinth and Mathew Sawyer and plays on the latest Comet Gain album, Paperback Ghosts.
Radio sessions on BBC6 Music (Stuart Maconie and Tom Robinson) and Soho Radio (Pete Paphides).
Live support slots (The Left Outsides asked for by the bands) with Dead Meadow, The Clientele, Mark Mulcahy, Bevis Frond.
The band is The Left Outsides, Mark Nicholas and Alison Cotton, a husband and wife duo based in London, England whose atmospheric, hypnotic songs echo Nico's icy European folk, pastoral psychedelia and chilly English fields at dawn.
The album is The Shape of Things to Come, mixed by Martin Noble of British Sea Power and Graham Sutton of Bark Psychosis (who's produced These New Puritans, Jarvis Cocker, Silver Apples). Thirteen tracks with a new direction but also a common thread that goes back to The Left Outsides haunted, fragile 2008 debut album, And Colours In Between, their live album of the same year, Live At The Drop Out, and their experimental soundtrack for Gus Alvarez's film Stand & Deliver in 2009.
The songs include modern-day murder ballads, 60s beat psychedelia and outsider folk, with music and lyrics inspired by memories, dreams and Gregorian chants.
The release date is Friday 15 May, 2015, in a limited edition vinyl run of 300 copies only, with evocative artwork and lyric sheet insert. The first release on the Dawn Bird record label run by Katrina Dixon, The Shape of Things to Come by The Left Outsides will be sold online through The Left Outsides bandcamp (www.theleftoutsides.com) and in selected record shops.
Before The Left Outsides, Mark and Alison were members of the psych folk group The Eighteenth Day of May. Alison was also in John Peel favourites Saloon, and in the past decade her sought-after viola-playing has led to high-profile work with leading musicians. She's played live with Cheval Sombre, Pete Astor, British Air Powers (an early version of British Sea Power), collaborates with Plinth and Mathew Sawyer and her viola playing and viola arrangements can be heard throughout Paperback Ghosts, the latest album by acclaimed indie band Comet Gain.
Since forming, The Left Outsides have gathered fans far and wide, playing across the UK, France, Germany and in the USA on their own, supporting kindred spirits including Dead Meadow, The Clientele, Mark Mulcahy and the Bevis Frond and playing Phil McMullen's Terrascope festival. They've recorded radio sessions for Stuart Maconie's Freakzone and Tom Robinson's show on BBC6 Music and this year began with Pete Paphides getting The Left Outsides as the first guests to perform on his new radio show for Soho Radio.
The Shape of Things to Come sees the Left Outsides expand and deepen their sound with an enhanced line-up, textured layers and experimental guitar creating an unnerving off-kilter edge.
It's time for The Shape of Things to Come. It's time for The Left Outsides.
