A lovely blog post about ‘Revenant Branch’ by Not For Resale here.
Wears The Trousers have done a brilliant review of ‘Stolen By Sailors’ for their Free Music Friday feature.
Lie In The Sound have once again included us in their Advent Calendar, this time for Door 14. This Berlin-based website is well worth visiting, as they don’t just blindly slam up links and MP3s, they research and write beautiful pieces to go with the music they post. All text is in both German and English.
German blog analogsoul mentioned us in their post about the calendar.
As you can see above, the Golau Glau seasonal EP Myrrh & Myth is available to stream and download (for FREE) from Bandcamp on the Pin Factory label. Christmas, Yule, the solstice, Sinterklaas, Mari Lwyd, secular fun – all are celebrated here. Along with an excellent remix from Pye Corner Audio.
Please share it with your friends and lovers.
Shimmy over to Pigeon Post, where you can indulge in our remix of worriedaboutsatan, plus tracks from Airship, Caribou and Gold Panda. All free downloads, fill your boots.
More bloggery about the remix:
The Sonic Minefield have done a round-up of their current favourite streaming tracks, including the Blue Daisy remix of ‘A Better Drinker’ and new tune ‘Neuro’. They also write about our good friends worriedaboutsatan, whose new single ‘Heart Monitor’ sounded amazing from the little video trailers they’d been sneaking out but now is available to stream in full. Jimi’s blog is a good read, as usual, and TSM is one of our favourites for keeping on top of new and esoteric music:
Golau Glau have been working on more organic/medical themed material and so have worriedaboutsatan, it seems, and the Worriers (they’re @teamsatan on Twitter) are always worth a listen. The newie even has vocals, just at the point where we started doing instrumentals, it’s uncanny. Symbiotic relationship, there. Somehow.
We’ve also put some new photos up from a recent hospital visit, here: Clinic.
We took some pictures of things we found in the snow.
Snow Angels (lots of photos if you click).
Oh and even though it’s not a “release” or anything, our cover of ‘This Will Be Our Year’ was amusingly and delightfully reviewed in this week’s Drowned In Sound Singles Reviews by Wendy Roby. We like “deliciously watery”. Thank you.
Stalwart Golau Glau supporters Pretty Much Amazing have applied their usual skill and vigour to a write-up of ‘Foolstide’ and ‘A Tragic Error’ here:
Comics (Captain Britain/Dark X Men and more)/novel (Something More/British Summertime)/TV (Doctor Who etc) writer Paul Cornell dropped in a bit about us in the Christmas music post of his 12 Blogs of Christmas:
The Christmas jingle he posts on there is particularly inspiring, we might knock one up if anyone wants to play one.
We did a rather beautiful photo-interview with new website A Negative Narrative (go and check out their Alessi’s Ark feature pronto):
Suits proper big screens better than phones. That’s technology for you.
