Sunday Notes – 15/3/15

This week has admittedly been more chilled. On repeat was this from Elvis Depressedly – the first song from the soon to be released album New Alhambra, the long-awaited follow up to 2013’s Holo Pleasures. The LP is set to have a “spring 2015” release via Orchid Tapes and Run For Cover, so I whole-heartedly […]

Touring spoken word is a little different to a straight forward band tour – often promoters aren’t interested, or don’t perceive […]
