It really is incredible. Funny, though - didn't grab me immediately, but now it's all I listen to.

Every song mentions the summer! Well, most of them.

As the label that released it, it makes me smile to see people loving 'Carousel' and I can echo the thoughts about it being a 'grower' - there's plenty of immediacy to the songs but as a whole it works best given plenty of spins.

Just got around to listening to it, and it's lovely. A lot different to the first one too, which is nice. Emma's voice is amazing these days. I remember her when she had nowt but a pair of stripy tights, half a snakebite and ten Marlboro Lights...

Aww, come on. We've all done things we regret. You don't have to hide it.

You can't hide behind Pete forever!

Let's just keep things sweet and nobody has to reveal photos of anyone.

I know these are empty threats, for no photos exist of me between the ages of 16 and 24. For good reason.

Anyway. Yeah. This album is ace.

There was always someone with a camera in those days, so I wouldn't be so sure. I speak from experience!

And thank you.

Hi, our new album is officially released today!

The CDs come with a 12-page booklet with all the lyrics and some wonderful carousel-themed spiral designs, as created by the excellent Krister Bladh. They're available from a few shops and distros from today, as well as directly from the friendly folk at Odd Box Records:
Pocketbooks - Carousel (Odd Box Records)

The album's also now available on iTunes, Amazon MP3 and various other digital places. We're streaming a few of the songs over on our Bandcamp page, in case anyone fancies a listen:
Pocketbooks - Carousel (Bandcamp)

Thanks very much to everyone who's picked up a copy already, and for the kind comments above!

At the end of a year of financial meh Santa helped me out and finally let me have this album. I've got a handful of days left to let this grow into one of my top albums of 2011!

Hi, a couple of weeks ago we recorded a few songs as a video session for Art & Music magazine, with thanks to Jamie Holman and all the students at Blackburn College. Here it is!




We also recorded separate videos for a couple of extra songs which are on Youtube: Sound Of The Carnival / Sparklers
