I seem to be getting an inordinate number of emails lately with bands / tracks featuring Wolf / Wolves, this is one I rather like, it’s the title track from Lizabett’s forthcoming debut long player, a singer/songwriter based in Scotland – but originally from Transylvania, we featured her excellent self-released EP The Traveller’s Song on Beat Surrender a couple of year ago. The album launch date is the 24th of July at The Blue Lamp (Aberdeen), here’s another track from the album the whet the appetite.

A Beat Surrender favourite Emily Barker has a new solo acoustic recording out later this year with funding through Pledge music, there’s a nice selection of choices including vinyl, for which I have of course already got my order in, for more info on the project and details of goodies click here.

Rob Heron & The Tea Pad Orchestra are releasing their album entitled Talk About The Weather at the perfect time given the British preoccupation with all things meteorological particularly as the odd day of sunshine is on the horizon with summer allegedly about to burst forth, and even if ‘it’ fails to deliver then this album has the verve to lift the clouds and let the rays shine to light up up your mood.
Following on a trio of very successful tours of the UK and Ireland, the band have developed there music style to include a veritable selection box of material, including ragtime, country, mambo and a good old croon, alongside the weather there’s a bunch of more topical issues including coffee, HS2, arcade gambling and rogue landlords. The Newcastle-upon-Tyne band will be taking their self coined “North Eastern Swing” on a jaunt across the UK including a host of festival dates June through to September and into Euroland later in the year.
The album is out on the 7th of July and available on CD, vinyl & download, here’s your teaser track Junk on the Radio
