Lambchop Announce UK Tour For August

Lambchop release news of a UK tour this August. On a run of 11 dates which include London's Islington Assembly Hall, the band will also perform at Green Man Festival. Having released their latest album, FLOTUS, late last year to critical acclaim; Lambchop have also shared a new version of album highlight 'The Hustle' entitled 'The Hustle Unlimited'.

Speaking of the new version of the track Lambchop's Kurt Wagner said: "Sometimes things can get out of control, an impromptu idea is presented and you take that idea to a logical conclusion to see where it goes. In this case Tony Crow [piano] came up with a rather 'Love Unlimited Orchestra' take on the hustle during a rehearsal with Andy Stack [drums, Wye Oak]. It seemed nuts at the time but being rather nuts ourselves I thought we should try recording it and taking it all the way to full realization. Plus it was a great way to capture Andy's tenure with us in the studio”.

Lambchop's last UK appearance was a sold-out show as a part of The Roundhouse's In The Round series in January and received widespread praise including four star reviews from The Guardian, The Times and the Evening Standard. 'The Hustle Unlimited' along with the previously shared Prince cover 'When You Were Mine’ will be available on a limited edition 12” via City Slang during the tour and officially released on August 11.

Crumbs Reveal ‘Weasels Can Wait’

Crumbs have revealed a second track from their forthcoming debut album Mind Yr Manners. ‘Weasels Can Wait’ “is a party song about being the one crying at the party,” explain the band. “It was filmed in our hometown of Leeds by Robin Deione. The video skips between Super-8 home video-style footage of us walking Zelda the chihuahua through Batcliffe Woods of a summer evening, and performing the song in front of vivid fruit salad-coloured visuals. It also features an inexplicably long worm.”

Mind Yr Manners is set for release July 28 and it’s a record that deals a lot with the art of coping with not coping. Crumbs’ unique sound comprises a bumper post-punk/pop party bag mix of sprightly basslines, super-danceable cowbell-tinged rhythms, fizzing guitars and effervescent interchanging vocal lines. Mind Yr Manners was recorded with MJ at Suburban Home.

Since forming in 2015 Crumbs have kept themselves busy releasing music with Tuff Enuff, Swirly and Bowl Cut Records, recording a live session for Marc Riley on 6 Music, playing gigs all over the shop and writing and recording their debut album. Crumbs are: Ruth Gilmore (vocals), Jamie Wilson (bass/vocals), Gem Prout (drums) and Stuart Alexander (guitar). They are particularly fond of pets and puns.
