We are super blessed to have TURIN BRAKES in store playing a live intimate in store to promote their brand new record ‘Lost Property’.
This is an even bigger deal for us, as this will be the first time that a band has played 2 in stores for us!
We were lucky enough to have them play for us when we were half the physical size, a few years back. So I can’t wait to see their faces, when they have all that extra space! Ha – not much space still.
Anyway, the guys will be playing from 7:00pm on Wednesday 3rd February and we’ll be opening our doors at 6:45pm, with a first in the queue, first to be let in policy….
BUT…We offer you the chance to secure a place at the in store by pre ordering the record
You will then be invited to arrive earlier than advertised to collect your record, and grab a spot near the front. We will e mail you details near to the time of the event.
We’ll also have a special pie dedicated to Turin Brakes (Witty name and ingredients to follow)
I do believe it’s the perfect chance to get your supper, and tap your foot and synchronise your spoon to mouth movements whilst your ears and belly harmonise together, which will bring a big curl upwards of your lips.
ANYWAY – more info on the new record below.
Turin Brakes release their hotly anticipated new album, Lost Property, through Cooking Vinyl, on January 29th 2016.
A collection of dispatches from the elusive side of reality that’s just a twist away from the everyday, Lost Property features the band’s trademark West-Coast acoustic guitar and widescreen harmony textures. Listen carefully beneath the lush, cinematic production the band created with co-conspirator Ali Staton (Madonna, La Roux) in the analogue world of Rockfields’ legendary studio; and you’ll hear other hints and stories, both hopeful and unsettling, resonating with unexpected echoes from your own life.
The record scales up from the intimacy of Martini, through the uneasy domesticity of Quiet Ones, the futuristic pulse of 96, the yearning gospel inflections of Save You hurtling towards the towering darkness of epic finale Black Rabbit.
There’s the intimacy and warmth that Turin Brakes have taken along with them down the years, but this time reaching up towards something bigger, more epic in scope and darker in hue. It’s a sound yearning for the wide open spaces of the USA but rooted in the grimy streets of South London, still unique, still unforgettable.
How many pundits frantically casting their runes back in 1999 for predictions for the new millennium would have foreseen that Turin Brakes would be releasing their seventh studio album in 2016? Back then, they were hotly-tipped young ingénues, and we all know what usually happens to them in the heartless world of showbiz….While many of the rest of the class of 2000 seem forever frozen into the faces in their yearbook pictures, Turin Brakes are still making their way through the century’s changing landscape.
Turin Brakes are: Olly Knights and Gale Paridjanian, Rob Allum and Eddie Myer.
