Cut Throat Francis
Newly released, Cut Throat Francis’ Chicken Hands is as zany and authentic as you remember them, swaying between dark minors and satisfying resolutions, with the addition of a few new instruments! Go and see the full arsenal of CTF musical devices handled live: they’re performing, including a show at Crofter’s Rights (Bristol) early next month.
Podcast: Chicken Notes
Cam is joined this month by Tom from Cut Throat Francis as they celebrate (and discuss) their new single, Chicken Hands. Flanking it on either side are FUBAR’s latest single FunDay, from the EP of the same name, and Anto Dust’s soothing dreampop song A Larkin. Of course, lots of big news round the label with releases from George Croucher and Spencer Flay.
Notes About You - in full.
George Croucher finally releases his long promised LP, Notes About You. After the warm response we got to his two lead singles, Find Myself In You and 2010, the LP comes with a further six songs spanning a dozen moods and emotions with George’s immaculate vocals. “Each one is a note to someone”, he says - duly noted.
FUBAR take traditional indie rock instruments and a midlands rock tradition and infuse it with a sense of playfulness that makes it entirely their own. FunDay is a very appropriate name for their recent single. Did I mention the riff? Because I can’t seem to forget it. Taken from their EP of the same name, check out their music video to Something Good.
A spacey texture, with an equally spacey vocal performance, introduces Anto Dust to the show. A Larkin develops into a euphoric climax, working as a perfect calm down from, well, whatever you need calming from. Having migrated from Sardinia to London, this is Anto’s first single since the pandemic, hopefully the first of many.
