Wojtek Godzisz: THE MOON AND THE YEW TREE - LAUNCH PARTY & NEW RELEASE DATE (29TH OCTOBER)
Posted 19 Oct 2007
After gracing In The City in Manchester this Sunday at the Night & Day (2pm), Wojtek will be speeding back to London to prepare for his Single Launch Party at The Old Blue Last on Monday evening (22nd October).

He'll be playing main support at 9.15PM to Chauffeur Driven Aviator, so make sure you're down relatively early.

The single release has been pushed back one week to 29th October and will be available on a delightful 7" and also via all the usual digital retailers. Here are some of the kind words that we've had in so far:

==========================================

"One of the most unusual songs you will hear all year and love." - 8/10 - COMFORT COMES

"A stirring, chest beating anthem that's part Polish folk song and part Arcade Fire string loveliness." - SOUNDS XP

"Wojtek Godzisz shows himself again as an uber talented writer with a voice as rough and brutal as any haggered great." - THE PLASTIC ASHTRAY

"This is an excellent single to listen to now that winter’s coming and we’re all cold and a tad angry." - I SHOT THE DEPUTY

"Godzisz has a fantastic single on his hands... To put it simply, a thrill." - THE HORN

"Like Arcade Fire as conducted by Tim Burton" - 8/10 - LAUNCHPAD


Untitled Musical Project: return in November for first shows in four years
posted 02 Aug 2013

Birmingham's snarling indie-punk trio Untitled Musical Project were briefly the toast of the music press and feverish blog posts upon the release of their self-titled mini-album in 2007. That's until they crashed and burned, with only a handful of recordings and a series of caustic, fearsome live shows to remember them by. With past enmities finally laid to rest (and despite an unfathomable lack of big money reformation offers), Untitled are back in action for two shows in November.

SAT 16TH NOV @ BUFFALO BAR, LONDON (Tickets)
SAT 23RD NOV @ THE SUNFLOWER LOUNGE, BIRMINGHAM (Tickets)

Scanners: new album 'Love Is Symmetry' set for release on the 10th of June
posted 21 May 2013

Love Is Symmetry is the third album from London quintet Scanners and their best yet, opening with the dark percussion of the title track, a song that lures you in with its whispered vocal before exploding wide open into a huge Vangelis- like chorus. Tracks such as Mexico and Charmed Life have an Arcade Fire quality, rising and falling with the energy of Sarah Daly's vocals and violin. This violin also adds richness to the epic State Of Wonder, a song about the river Lea that flows past their window in East London.

The Scanners trademark synth is also a strong presence on many of the tracks. On songs, like the impossibly named Today Is The Tomorrow That They Promised Yesterday and the squarely danceable Control, the synth takes the lead. The weird broken rhythm of When They Put Me Back Together They Forgot To Turn Me On, and the strangely joyful Cure-like My Streets Are Always In The Shade see them broaden their range, providing two album highlights.

Recorded and produced by the band, with mixes by Victor Van Vugt (PJ Harvey, Athlete), the sound is still Scanners. Yet they have moved on. Love Is Symmetry seems more urgent, the rhythms more complex, but still the love of strong melody is there on every track.

Scanners have released two albums via Dim Mak Records (Bloc Party, Atari Teenage Riot, Steve Aoki) and their songs have soundtracked many a dramatic twist on TV shows such as Shameless, Gossip Girl, Entourage and One Tree Hill. They have also shared stages with Laura Marling, Devo, Air, The Horrors, Asobi Seksu, Florence And The Machine and These New Puritans amongst many others.

The first single off the album- Control is out on the 3rd of June.

The band will play an album launch show at Birthdays on the 12th of June.
