Last week we were proud to be a part of Sister Ray’s Record Store Day celebration in London. We had a tremendous time wandering around the sunny streets of Soho, visiting flower stalls, eating pizza and soaking up the party atmosphere. Thanks very much to Sister Ray and everyone involved for putting on such a great event.
Here’s a video from the day
For those who don’t have a local store and were unable to get their hands on a copy of our Record Store Day EP, we will be selling a few that we asked to be kept aside for our webshop on Monday May 20th.
SHORT FILM - RECORDING UPSTAIRS AT UNITED EP
We are very excited to present a short film documenting the making of the EP made by our friend, the enormously talented, New York based film maker Luke Norby. We have been working with Luke over the last few weeks to make this film which has been a labour of love for all of us.
Please have a watch here
UPSTAIRS AT UNITED EP
RECORD STORE DAY 2013
Back in 2011 we were on a US tour with Blitzen Trapper and Dawes when our good friends at United Record Pressing invited us to stop by and record a live EP. United arranged for Chris Mara from Nashville studio ‘Welcome to 1979’ to set up a mobile analogue studio in the rooms above the factory floor and record us, live, straight to tape.
Several members of Blitzen Trapper agreed to be our backing band for the session and on our one day off we all got up early and embarked upon a mini adventure from Birmingham, Alabama to Nashville, Tennessee.
The resulting EP is released worldwide for Record Store Day this Saturday, April 20th.
'Upstairs At United' is the 6th in the series already containing the likes of Brandon Benson, Keane, Jeff The Brotherhood and Willy Mason. You should find the EP in all good independent record shops.
To celebrate Record Store Day we are going to be playing outside Sister Ray Records on Berwick Street, Soho, London. It is the first time the street has been closed for a live concert, it is free entry and the line-up is fantastic, it looks set to be a great day

We are having a last minute scramble to sort everything before our UK tour starts next week. The van has been booked, spare strings have been purchased and setlists have been discussed but I still need to locate my thermos and spork, essentials in road side dinning.
