Haiku Salut

Post by islandhopper » Sun Jul 03, 2011 18:36

They probably deserve their own thread now really, eh? They're completely different from The Deirdres and yet I love them both. Got the EP yesterday and it's really beautiful. They seem like busy girls so I look forward to hearing much more in the future too and to seeing them at indietracks.

Totally agree. I just discovered them thanks to the Indietracks compilation and fell in love with their sound - the way that accordion enters in "Snaffle" is nothing less than perfect. Really looking forward to seeing them in July!

I seem to remember the upstairs room at the Rutland being very dusty when I saw them in Sheffield back in January. Very dusty indeed.

If any Londons fancy it, I might be off to see them tomorrow night at a place called Native Tongue (right by Barbican tube station, apparently). I think they're on around 8-8:30. Yeah.

They were ace when we played with them at Tony's second acoustic afternoon - really different to what we were expecting! I got the EP and it's ace, too! Will definitely be camping out in the church at Indietracks to see them on Sunday!

A bit in love with the EP. Having already chatted with one of them on that there twitter about how much it sounds like the sadly defunct Detektivbyrån I know I am going to like their other stuff. Really looking forward to seeing them at Indietracks!

The EP dropped through the letterbox this morning and it's right proper pretty it is. The first few tracks sound a bit like Yann Tiersen being chased by clowns on unicycles, but the last track, Vowels as Clear as Church Bells is sublimely beautiful; it made me well right up like a blubbery six year old girl who just dropped her ice-cream.

Yes, it's in the shops on March 11, but we'll start selling pre-orders online at the start of next year. It's on CD and vinyl.

There's talk of a short French/Belgian tour at the start of March. Nothing in Scandinavia yet, although they have played Sweden before - a Cosy Den show - so hopefully they'll go back.

It's an amazing record. I'm in total awe of it really, and of them.

Yes, that Cosy Den show was great, and they seemed to like being here. I very much hope they come back.

I am sure we could put them up in Stockholm if they needed somewhere to stay.

The last two times I've seen them they've been brilliant. Sort of on a different level to when I've seen them before. Maybe it's that weird Simon Says computer thing they've got now.

There's a stream of the new single, "Los Elefantes", up on the band's site.

We're sending out pre-orders of the album now as well. It's on CD and vinyl (with a free download code).

And they're playing next week in London with Darren Hayman and Shrag. That's going to be quite a night...

That little tablet of tricks is amazing! First came across James Yuill using one a few years ago and thought it was The Future.

I'm not sure what I'd ask for to get one in a music shop. I'd just stand there mimicking its bleeping noises until the square-wheeled van arrived.

What did you make of the video? I couldn't quite believe it when I first saw it...

Marvellous as ever. I love that they used to be in The Deirdres and now they're making this completely different and wonderful sort of sound. Properly excited for the album.
