Oh nice! Glad you bought a ticket, hope you enjoy it. I'm almost certain you'll detest the support act though, haha.

On top form again last night, really great set too. Basically same as last time except with "Glimmer" added in.

They were on the Live Lounge today, performed "Feel To Follow" and a cover of The Black Keys - "Lonely Boy":

Haha yeah I was just bemused by that.

Really enjoyed Maccabees. Closing with We Grew Up At Midnight was lovely. All the latest album tracks did it for me. And I Will Love You Better? Which I think I know from before was class. Even the songs I didn't know were enjoyable. They rocked harder than I imagined.

Really glad to hear it, yeah they really put on a great live show and sound much bigger than on record. Haha, I adored La Shark but knew it wouldn't go down with you.

A brand new illustrated book with a soundtrack written and performed by Orlando Weeks (with 6 all new original songs) titled Young Colossus was released today. Find more info and hear the first track "Franky" here. It's truly lush.

Holy shit, the b-side to the "Feel To Follow" vinyl single is a remix of the track by the awesome Casually Here. It features a new vocal take from Orlando is is genuinely so awesome.

As soon as it surfaces online via youtube or something, I'll post.

Here it is: http://soundcloud.com/sonidacollecti...b-side-feel-to

Make sure you pick up Casually Here's EP, PELT, too. I believe it's still free.

I wish they would play a show here.

Shows in Europe seems so much more, and excuse my use of this hack word, epic. Sounds like it was amazing, Kyle, glad you got to go.

I've been checking out a lot of new music lately (trying to broaden my horizons so to speak), and Kyle's review/many posts convinced me to check this out. I love it. So far Went Away is my favorite alongside Grew Up At Midnight. Thanks for the new music, Kyle.

Remind me about the video and song later.

they need to tour the US soon

Just finishing my first listen.

This is excellent, in so many ways.

This is fantastic. Hope more people listen

I want a copy of my own!


After giving it a couple more spins now I have to say my favorites are: Ayla, Forever I've Known, Heave, Pelican, Go, and Grew Up at Midnight. The entire album is so good, though.

Haha that's been my avatar on Last.fm for a while now.

Good show, pales in comparison to all the poll options.

Not sure if any of these are near you, but figured a bunch of you would be interested. Finally got a few North American tour dates, some headlining, some supporting Florence and The Machine and The Weeknd: http://www.absolutepunk.net/showthread.php?t=2737462

Thanks for getting my hopes up for nothing! One show is about 2 hours away and they're not headlining.

Sorry mannn, it sucks they have such trouble trying to get a tour booked out there because they have no US support from a label or PR it seems, so basically can tell that Florence took them because she wanted to get them out and around there more as they are good friends. Shame it's not more extensive.

The Camden NJ doesn't seem to be up yet officially (at least not ticket sales), but it would be nice to see all three.
