Wed 12th Feb 2014 windings / Land Lovers: split 12” LP

On February 28th we are teaming up with our pals at Popical Island to release our first ever split album and first ever split label release.Our side features our very own windings; their sid includes Land Lovers. You can listen to two tracks here, or check out the windings video for 'Neverwood' here. A little blurb follows.


=================

Two of Ireland’s most innovative indie labels join forces to release music from two of Ireland’s most enigmatic bands. windings/Land Lovers is the unnamed 11-track split album from Out On a Limb’s windings and Popical Island’s Land Lovers, issued on 12” vinyl and download from 28th February.


This is the first new windings’ material since the release of their Choice Music Prize nominated album, I Am Not The Crow. The 5-piece have spent the intervening time gigging in Ireland and the UK and writing the tracks that will be part of a new windings’ release later in the year. Lead single ‘Neverwood’ zips along with a sparse verse before kicking in with some sci-fi Joey Santiagoesque guitar in a big chorus. windings are at their best throughout, with all five parts of the machine pulling in the same dynamic direction.


Land Lovers meanwhile are one of the bands spearheading Popical Island’s rise to Irish indie’s top table and they kick off their side with the single ‘Vittima di Cucina’, a full-throttle collision of Denim, Shonen Knife and early REM. Continuing with the intelligent songwriting that marked their previous album Confidants, ‘Vittima di Cucina’ opens the latest Land Lovers' release with its foot firmly to the floor. Six more (mostly) brief pop incidents follow as Land Lovers deliver their most tuneful, up-front set to date.

Both bands will embark on a small nationwide tour to support the split vinyl release, the first of its kind between the two iconic Irish labels.
