Jumbo recomendations


Other records on this label

Chaika - Chaika (Cassette EP)
THIS IS A CASSETTE - Banks of reverb, mountainous delay and cavernous echoes capture the out-there vocals in a clearly psyched-out dream. This is pure brilliance on cassette and I'm hoping we'll see them on vinyl ASAP! If you dig Hookworms, Wooden Shjipps et al you'll know where I'm coming from!

EP - Self Released - CHAIKA001 - £0.99Add to basket
Otiks - Contrast
Driving and dramatic, this takes in the feel of 80's new-wave and shakes up the sound with a synthy pop-rock flourish. 4 Tracks that do the business!

CD EP - Self Released - OTIK001 - £3.49Add to basket
Expelaires - Sick Of Lies
Superb and rock solid return of the new-wave/punk stars of the infamous 'Hicks On The Sticks' compilation. I'm pleased to say they've been playing again for a little while now and the magic is more than still there (along with the message) and they're still writing memorable, powerful catchy as hell songs too! This is maximum rock and roll mania that brings to mind Fear or early Damned too...Recommended!

CD - Self Released - EXP001 - £3.99Add to basket
We Died At Sea - The La La Bird
Fantastic blend of Country, Folk and Skiffle all melded into the best darn hokum around. It's very easy to see why they're getting support slots with people like Simone Felice...Passionately and professionally played, but sidestepping the slick by playing with a raw, whiskey drinkin' upbeat flavour. Recommended stuff and one's to watch!

Fin Henderson - At Least We'll Sing
Jumbo's Matthew Bradshaw says "Really impressed with his superb songwriting style that reminds me of early John Grant but with it's own flourish. It's a well produced, catchy gem with great instrumentation that suits Fin's vocals, yet makes you sit up and really listen and I expect that we'll be hearing more from Fin. Recommended"

Young British Artists - Change By Any Other Name
Already making quite a name for themselves, the latest release is another notch on their impressive cannon...Thundering, driving drums, hazy feedback and shoe-gaze shimmer, super lyrics and vocals...These guys can also drop the odd slow sweetner too! Recommended and definitely one's to watch!

LP - Self Released - YBA001 - £13.99Add to basket
Postculture - Postculture
Jumbo's Matthew Bradshaw says "Effortless blend of indie, funk-punk, disco and electronics that sound like it could be a muddle but is anything but...You cannot fail to get down with it's unrelenting boogie, indie-tronic funk and dazzling charm. "

Gale - Dancing With The Stars
Gale returns with another load of gothic redolence... Nostalgic, and for all the right reasons. Check!

Jumbo's Matthew Bradshaw says "Another voyage (this time into space) through synth-pop sassiness and new-wave tinged melodies. Gale is getting to be a bit of a Leeds legend with his crazed covers (Planet Claire, No Where Girl) of post-punk and goth-y hits and misses and of course his own compositions too, all done with a wonderful DIY aesthetic. Really digging the cool artwork too! Check."

Fallen Trees - War / Scare Mongering
LIMITED TO 250 COPIES - LIMITED SIGNED COPIES WHILE STOCKS LAST! Brilliantly played boogie-rock /blues-rock that aches with great riffage and passion with some top notch vocalism laid on top! A rocking sample of big things to come I reckon and recommended if you like early ZZ Top, Lynryd Skynrd etc!

Ten - Yukon Youth
Jumbo's Matthew Bradshaw says "Thoughtful post-rock frothing with atmosphere and attitude. It's a real builder that sours up into incredible soundscapes and through it's heavy-ness it somehow channels an ambient mellowness too! Their best release yet! Recommended."

30/32 - E.P.
A great gripping 3 tracker that makes good with it's indie rocking memorable tunes. Touches of Arctic Monkeys and even Joe Jackson in here and we're looking forward to hearing more from these local chaps.

Bearfoot Beware - World Owes You Nowt
I'm a bit of a fan so was eager to hear this new long-player and guess what? The waiting has sure paid off big time! This comes together like a savage sonic kick to the speakers...A manic meld of flipped out percussion, zappy guitars and angry, jerky energy...Oh and those VOCALS!!! Behind the sparks there lies a fire-starting lyrical specialness and poetic flare too! Recommended!

Quirke - 001/002
Jumbo's Matthew Bradshaw says "THIS IS A CASSETTE & 12" VINYL PACKAGE - Quirke bring forth some tasty experimental techno over a cassette and 12". Already getting the love from underground DJ's to Jumbo regulars. It's a dubbed out affair with the first side being rather anti-chug and wild and the flip being a groover. As for the cassette, well I don't know but I'm sure it's great."

Ellen And The Escapades - Lost Cause (Signed Copies)
LIMITED SIGNED COPIES - We've loved them from the get go so we were eager to hear the new songs...The wonderful voice and ace musicianship is still very much here in spades, as is the fantastic songwriting...But this, recording and production wise, is the best we've ever heard them...Folky fantastic-ness and HIGHLY recommended!

CD EP - Self Released - BOR04 - £4.99
Nadia Sheikh - 50 Feet
Jumbo's Matthew Bradshaw says "A perfect example of what strong rock/pop songwriting is all about. This is a killer mix of female vocals and memorable hook-filled songs that reach out over 6 songs and pull you into Nadia's great lyricism and performance...I expect she's be one to watch in the future for sure."

Autobodies - Bodywork E.P.
Within these four songs lies the fermented brew of 70's funk-punk and 80's new-wave and more contemporary D.I.Y. grooves...And boy is it a heady, head-mashing brew indeed. Energetic, punchy and one of THE best examples of it's type around at the moment...Expect big things!

7" EP - Self Released - AB01 - £5.99Add to basket
Salvation - Clash Of Dreams
Hard to believe that this whole album from 84 was, for various reasons, shelved...Although it's appeared as a bootleg over the the years this is the REAL official version complete and with extra tracks (including for the first time on CD their first 12" E.P.). For fans this is an essential release and a great glimpse of what could have been, for those delving into Goth then this album stands up as a perfect example of the music at the time...Recommended.

Loz Campbell - Lady Beryllium
Jumbo's Matthew Bradshaw says "Styling out through bluesy riffage and soulful vocals that seem to be channelled way beyond Loz's years. She writes engaging songs that flow through rock, pop, folk and straight up good vibes and heartbreaking times. One to watch!"

CD - Self Released - LOZCAM002 - £5.99Add to basket
Edgar Duke - Penguin EP
Jumbo's Rebecca Jane says "Not quite Mac Demarco, and just missing the tick in the Arctic Monkeys box whilst confidently striding towards the likes of Baxter Dury, this EP sits thoughtfully somewhere amongst the aformentioned. Very charming and excellantly self produced, this feels very accomplished. "

Talking Candy - Suicide E.P.

Wharf Street Galaxy Band - Wharf Street Galaxy Band
Jumbo's Matthew Bradshaw says "Uffff! Mind melting musical attack of psyched-up, post-punk, prose and feedback. If the Silver Apples went out drinking with the Fall round Shipley, just like this ingenious release it'd get messy, noisy and marvellous. Lyrically it's clever and the songwriting augments this into a sinister new level! Sharp, memorable and it creeps up into a crazed, intense frug...Very Recommended."

CD - Self Released - WSGB001 - £6.99
Trillionaires - The Light
Jumbo's Matthew Bradshaw says "I was excited to hear they had dropped an EP and this didn't disappoint. It includes their single and brings yet more great songwriting to the fore over 8 tracks. It's pop/rock feel conjurs up Prefab Sproat and Deacon Blue with a little modern magic too. One's to watch."

Rawschac - Rawschac E.P.
Harking back to the rap-metal riot-ous days this is a welcome treat! The energy and punchiness is all here is stacks and it's melodic blend of metal vocals and tough rap will have you smashing up the system for sure!

Victor RPA - Big Sounds For Small People
Jumbo's Matthew Bradshaw says "Beautifully built upon strings and piano, this accomplished mini album brings to mind Colin Blunstone and his 70's productions mixed with modern nod towards great orchestrated indie pop. It's rewarding stuff especially if you like sophisticated yet accessible song writing and I sense they'll go far. Recommended."

CD EP - Self Released - BSFSP001 - £7.99Add to basket
Marsicans - Chivalry E.P.
Really loving this winning combo of upbeat, highlife infused indie and crafty lyricism. It reminds me of Vampire Weekend and Arctic Monkeys in equal measures and if I'm honest they could hold their own with them any day...Someone give them a stadium support slot! Recommended!

CD EP - Self Released - MARSIC001 - £2.99
Andrei Nosov - Bright Lights Big City
Another giant leap into the Blues which sees Andrei perfect his craft channeling authentic electric blues ala Blues Breakers / Climax Blues Band and also the Chess / Checker electric blues period. Played with passion and a real understanding to what Blues is about he has the ability to make you double take and wonder if he was a long lost missing link....Still, he's here now and he even lends his own twist too. Recommended.

CD - Self Released - AN003 - £9.99
Andrei Nosov - Young Man's Blues
Shop favourite Andrei Nosov breaks from his former, well loved outfit, 'Elephants On Acid' to come up with this 14 tracker of blues-rock brilliance...A few cover versions rest alongside originals but trust me, this is 60/70's influenced blues rock at it's very best. Think Canned Heat, Blues Breakers, Climax Blues band et al. Recommended.

CD - Self Released - ANOS001 - £9.99
James Dey - The Night Time

Foxes Faux - Fox Tales
Although we have folk instruments we also have some damn raucous, rompin' stompin' harmony-laden, country bumpin' indie infused, gypsy punkin' banjo picking zing! Recommended.

CD - Self Released - FOXF001 - £6.99Add to basket
Born Blonde - Radio Bliss
A little gem (which is very limited too) that reminds me a little of early Verve in the way it finds it's way into a slowburning, quite touching territory. Great Seahawks remix remix on the flip.

10" - Self Released - BB02 - £3.99Add to basket
Berlyn Trilogy - A Perfect Stranger
Strong ripples of 80's electronic/synth pop and the edgy darkness of early Gary Numan and Orchestral Maneuvers In The Dark pulse through this great 12 tracker...Brought right up to date. Ones to watch for sure if you like it dark and sophisticated.

CD - Self Released - BERL001 - £10.99Add to basket
Das Pain - Joyride / Haunted Heart
A delicious and dramatic hop on board the slow, tender train of melancholy. This spirits up the songwriting of bands like The Tindersticks or Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds with it's poetic, thoughtful dark melody. Yet it ploughs it's own way too...One for lonely, whiskey fuelled reflective nights..Recommended.

7" - Self Released - PAIN001 - £5.99Add to basket
Ed Stones and the BD3 - Road Closed
Ed sets out his stall with the first blues blastin' track! Lyrically and musically this is top notch roots flavoured, smoke drenched, whisky drinkin' stomp!

CD - Self Released - BD3CD001X - £7.99
BLBX - Ozean
Look at the simple packaging that hides such a magnificent blur of sounds, from funked up glitch to splintered crunchy crazyness. It's rather accessible despite it's off kilter sonics, and well thought out and concieved and thankfully not a one track pony...Although they have a 'sound' it's not Xeroxed out in every track, 5 different sounding cuts soaking up a lot of different influences...Promising for sure. This will probably be the start of something big. Recommended stuff (not sure if it's their debut but i can see a bright future).

CD - Self Released - BLBX001 - £1.99Add to basket
Roger Davies - The Busker
More folk-flavoured finery from Roger who melds the personal and makes it personable...Some honest to goodness songwriting that remains stock full of empathy and wit. More please Roger....

CD - Self Released - BUSK001 - £9.99
Unstable Journey - Beast Market
For those about to psych...

Jumbo's Adam Gillison says "Sounding like they've been brought up on a heavy diet of grunge and psych rock, this is an impressively far-reaching CD. Think Sonic Youth, Pixies, Flying Saucer Attack, Carlton Melton. This Leeds band make a real racket, and I mean that nicely..."

Coral Caves - Labyrinths Path
Dark and mysterious...this album slowly hypnotises you into it's funeral paced world...From the atmospheric Tenor and Alto Sax to the eerieness of Christos Pappas's vocals this mournful, yet fresh story brings to mind the doomier side of the Doors and perhaps a more folky version of a deathly opera. Excellent stuff.

CD - Self Released - CCLC001 - £7.99Add to basket
Mush - Ex-Communique
Jumbo's Matthew Bradshaw says "This extended E.P. cements a range of ideas way beyond it's 5 tracks... Its fuzzed out, playful approach channels the slacker of spirit of Pavement and Sebadoh to create something way beyond these perceived influences. Big shop fave."

EP - Self Released - MUSH001EP - £7.99
Nikk - The Way I Live / Brightest Star
Jumbo's Matthew Bradshaw says "Within it's New-Wave/Post-Punk roots lies some catchy, honest songwriting which touches on love and loss. It reminds me a little of Elvis Costello's more tender moments. Well played and sung, I expect Nikk will be playing your town real soon! Check!"

Ed Stones And The BD3 - This Is The Life

Ceiling Demons - Dual Sides
Metaphor-laden flows, philosophical taunts and subtly-spit musings all frazzling around a frame of ill-beats and samples (some Eastern influenced). A great example of the inventiveness of UK Hiphop right now. If you like 'Don't Talk To Strangers' or Chief Wigz insights then you'll love it!

Ed Stones And The BD3 - Cook Book
Jumbo's Matthew Bradshaw says "The 3rd outing from Ed Stones And The BD3 sees a dark twisted western theme rub nicely against some heavy blues rock....The boogie riffs, the chuggin' pace and fantastic prose is still there but the production and direction points towards an even bigger audience!! Radion peeps take note that these guyts are going all the way!"

Ella Janes - Leave It All Behind
There's a warm, blissful melancholy feel to the opening track that lends itself to the involving arrangements of Nick Drake which sets up this E.P. very nicely...Tender folk sounds wrapped in a flowing fragility that elevates Ella's vocals and songwriting to make her one to watch for sure....

Gullich - Gullich
Jumbo's Matthew Bradshaw says "Fundementally this is Math-ish, Punk-ish rage n' groove but at an angular, post-rock/art-rock degree...And it's REALLY great! An 8 track slurp of satisfaction, a multi-pack gulp of amazingness. Check it out and PLAY IT LOUD!"

Great (infact superb) playing means this puts them up there with the cream of the UK Jazz crop (Polar Bear, Nat Birchall, Matthew Hallsall et al). It reminds me at times of Placebo, Marc Moulin and even mid-seventies library music on De Wolfe...Creative, hypnotic and recommended."

Humble Scoundrel - Banger/Put Your Finger On It
Reminding me of early Faith No More and 'Upliftmofopartyplan' era Red Hot Chili Peppers with it's funky, percussive approach HS also mix groovy rock riffage with a bluesy bounce-out...Recorded at Eiger Studio's I reckon this 3 piece will be playing the Key Club in no time!

Spirit Of John - Rats
Honing their rough and ready sound to a tee we raise our glasses to the loose, ramshackle S.O.J. from country-fried slackness to tub-thumpin' stomp, these folks are more than your average bunch of whisky glass philosophers... country done gone wild!

Eye - Crushing Leaves
Jumbo's Matthew Bradshaw says "You know that futuristic feeling you get when sometimes you're listening to say, 60's psych bands like Silver Apples who used an almost proto-house music template and dance rhythms...Well Eye seem to do a similar thing, producing a far-flung hybrid or indie/leftfield/psychedelia warped by a far flung futuristism like electronica percussion without the electronica...This GROOVES and moves you with it's trippy percussive magic. Really really great!"

Maia - Finite World E.P.
Another great release from a band that seem to be getting quite a lot of love from radio at the moment...4 tracks taking in folk, indie and harmonious, catchy vibes yet spun through an almost 60's haze yet definitely in the present. Recommended for sure and one's to watch!

Bratan/The Genius Of Germs - I Am Your Shadow
CASSETTE - Very special cassette that combines shronking out-there jams with passionate prose...Noisy and in your face yet it still has a sort of melodic dignity about it that doesn't scare you off, add to that the angry, absorbing spoken word rants and it should really be quite a scary journey but instead it sucks you in to a free-form world of poetic genius. Recommended.

Burning Hank - Seriously, It's Getting Us Down Now
12 tracks of songs that come heavily recommended indeed. It's an absolute gem that combines the fun and frolics of the Modern Lovers and Pavement into a more refined version of indie with folky and alt country splashes. With songs name checking how great Radio 4 is you know you're in great hands. A gem of of an album by local heroes.

CD - Self Released - HANK001 - £5.99
Happy Daggers - Get Yourself Together
Funky indie grooves that bounce along the same vibes as Sunshine Underground and other punk-funkers yet this could easily cross over to nu-funk too. With 2 nice remixes by Le Phreak and Secret Circuits this is a great 3 tracker full of summer sunshine fun.

Jumbo's Matthew Bradshaw says "PRE-ORDER - VERY LIMITED PRESSING !!! Stunningly crafted guitar hypnotics, ear-worm vocals, perfect percussion and psyched-up song-writing. This will most probably be one of the best things you hear all year...It flickers with harmony, ideas, wild but accessible song-structures and with a feel good edge that's somehow warm and cool at the same time!

CD - Self Released - JR001 - £3.99
Mother's Auxillary - Winter E.P.
Recently this happened to work it's way onto the shop soundsystem which brought about a steady roll of 'asks' and made pleasantly surprised us. It's a moody mix of thematics, acoustica, acidic folk and spirited arrangements with added sampling to give it an electronica feel. Recommended.

March Violets - Made Glorious
LIMITED SIGNED INSERTS - What's not to love about this brilliant new album from Goth legends 'The March Violets'. Dark yet groovy drum patterns that perfectly pulse away, based around their classic new-wave/gothic 80's sound they've lost none of their song-writing magic and they've come up with an album that fits totally into today's contemporary indie dark-wave/cold-wave sounds. This my friends is the foundations upon which it was all built. Also comes with a bunch of excellent tasteful remixes too! Recommended.

2 x CD - Self Released - MARCHV001X - £12.99
Middleman - Counterstep
After years of grafting they've got their sound to a fine art...Exciting, sing-a-long, meaningful and full of joy! A kind of hip-hop hybrid that fuses rock/indie and elements of dance with passionate lyricism. They've come up with, in my opinion, their best release yet! Recommended.

Various Artists - MW - Droozed On The Medium Wave (Vol 3)
Hand Printed Sleeve. Subtitled 'While You Were Sleeping Volume 3'. Another fantastic mix from the ever mysterious .MW. Balearic beaut's and psyched-out soulful bliss.

Roger Davies - Local Radio
Another winner from our Roger...Seriously great tales and stories, musings and thoughts on everything from Pubs, Rock n Roll, Remembrance Day the Tour D'Yorkshire and of course local radio all done in Rogers warm, funny yet moving style!

Red Pills - Northern Rock
Concept albums tend to be a bit thin on the ground nowerdays so it's refreshing to hear The Red Pills modern take on this once loved genre. 15 songs that map out the life of capitalism and the greed and poverty that balances so precariously...It tells the story through a power-pop/rock framework. Touches of the Who and Kinks with a nod towards punk too. Check.

Various Artists - Orgreave Justice
Stunning 33 Track compilation supporting the Orgreave Truth And Justice Campain. Some brilliant bands and artists including amongst MANY others Billy Bragg, Chumbawamba, Blossoms, BlackLamps, TV Smith, Jon Langford, Chris T-T etc etc Musically it ranges from agit-pop, punk, folk, indie rock and more but it's protest songs a-plenty and some dynamite passion that's for sure. Recommended!

Hayley Gaftarnick - Circles
From the first cut 'Turn To Stone' you know this is going to be something special...And this collection of heartbreakers, ballads and musical musings sure is special. Built around Hayleys lush, strong vocalism and incredible band it's a funky, soulful journey through acoustic on the upbeat and pop on the downbeat. Very Recommended and I expect this to be massive by the end of 2015 as it knock the spots off some of the major label acts that attempt this kind of stuff!

Philip Cockerham - Waiting For The Age Of Reason
This brilliantly realised folk album seems to pick up on the multitude of folk styles to create a hotpot of flavours...From the politics and wit of Billy Bragg, Nic Jones et al to the new stylings of the current crop like the Unthanks or Imagined Village...It totally traverses the old and new yet Philip has his own style and take on things too...even a nod to Colin Blunstone's beautiful harmonies...Spot on stuff.

CD - Self Released - PC001 - £7.99
Philip Cockerham - Janglebuddy
Philip's latest proves yet again that the man has a knack of turning observations into some mighty memorable tunes...Charismatic and powerful with an armoury of hooky guitar licks Philip's conjured up a more than worthy successor to his previous gem 'Waiting For The Age of Reason'. This time he's got some help from his musical friends...A brilliant slice of folk music's past. present and future...Recommmended.

Cottonwoolf - Coming Up Roses
Witin the lovely packaging (it's a folded up hexagon) lies a sophisticated 2 track gem.

Excellent stuff that left me wanting to track down more...

Los Trasgos Muertos - Los Trasgos Muertos
Tweaking the 70's rock freak in me, this at times, is a heavy blues rockin' riffage strewn romp with 60's garage fuzz undertones and at others this is just plain smooth gliding...Perfectly pitched this Manc band certainly put the 'Chest Hair' into Manchester yet it's fantastically creative, mixing up psych-y vibes, warm AOR production with top vocalism and musicianship! You can I tell I really like this can't you? Can't wait to see them live! Recommended.

P. R. Haughton - Blues
Accomplished 14 tracker that shows off the talent and styles of this well respected local bluesman. Often seen playing the Grove and elsewhere P.R. Haughton comes heavy with some immersive blues that ripples with straight up grooviness, sliding and bending up a storm. Peter's voice lends itself perfectly to the Mississippi magic with his blues twang and warmth. Great guitar playing and great vocals...What more do you want? A great debut.

ZX+ - Sickly
Often my favourite listen's come from solitary visions like this. Stephen Evan's compositions were also performed, recorded, produced and pushed by him, lending a person vision to this emotional, fun-loing, ambitious slab of wax. Playful, often psychedelic glimpse sit next to straight ahead raw catchiness. Hat's off to him. This is a recommended record of one man's imagination, and I bet we will be hearing more from him soon! Reminds me a bit of Chris TT and even Deerhoof.

Jacobean Ruff - Sunlight
Jumbo's Matthew Bradshaw says "If I were to pin down what I like most about J.R. so much I'd say that it's because they create such dramatic energy within such a loose, playfulness...Another Juxtaposition would be a kind of powerful prettiness that permeates their songs. It's an accomplished, sophisticated mini album enhanced by great playing, production, vocals and some mighty impressive ideas..One's to watch and recommended for sure!"

With warm sounding experiments in production that cross-over into pop and rock with a home studio feel but with the imagination to take it to another place. I get the sense that a lot of fun was had making this and to me it contains all the right elements to be a future private pressed classic! Imagine the Beta Band jamming with Messathetics label and you're half way there..."

Return To Aljustrel - Tell The People I'm Not Coming Down
From the easy glide grooves and the folk-rock touches you can tell straight away that this isn't going to be like your run of the mill album...What sets it apart from the current crop is that it seems to tastefully pick out the warm, almost progressive hooks of the 70's rock and pop scene and beams it forward into a contemporary indie rock album. Recommended.

Whatevers - Art & Sex
My Oh My!!! What fantastic album is this? Layers of indie led lovability...This pinches out the whole musical stem creating some wonderful triumphs married faithfully to deft lyricism. This reminds me of Belle And Sebastian's debut, not musically but more in that it's full of possibilities, passion and promise. It's gopt a real D.I.Y. feel to it without at all being lo-fi, and it seems at ease travesing indie-rock/new wave and leftfield sensibilities. Very recommended and straight on the JUMBO playlist!

Roger Davies - The Yorkshire Songwriter
If you don't know it already by now, we're MASSIVE fans of Roger. He's a local folk hero with international appeal and this double CD compiles both earlier albums 'Northern Trash' and 'The Busker' as a double CD so it's the perfect place to check him out. Superb songwriting that manages to be funny, charming and also poignant too. He even manages to hook-up with the Brighouse And Rastrick band on one of the tracks. Highly Recommended.

Incredible debut from this local duo, blending acid folk and roots music into an involving evolution of '60s/'70s folk and modern magnificence. If you love it sassy then this is for you...Based around a stripped down sound of banjo and lush vocals, it will appeal to fans of Bonnie Dobson, First Aid Kit and the weirder side of folk/roots. Highly Recommended.

Philip Cockerham - Running Man
This, in my opinion, the best album so far by Philip is a prime example of his powerful songwriting skills. At times forceful, at others moving but all very much brilliantly crafted in a contemporary folk style. It's strong roots lie in the last 50 years of folk, with strong politics (personal and societal) and a story-telling form that's warm and familiar without ever being shmaltzy...If you don't know Mr. Cockerham by now then you soon will...He's gonna be one of our best known folkies before long. Highly Recommended.

If you dig blue-eyed soul of the likes of Kenny Thomas, Steely Dan and even Ned Doherty then this is most definitely in the ball-park. Sunshine grooves that will be picked up by radio in no time!"

Jumbo's Matthew Bradshaw says "The Harriets are fast proving to be a dynamic local outfit capable of writing uber catchy songs (so catchy that they've won over the public when busking their own material). This single is another reason why we think they'll soon be everyone's favourite new band too."

Astraluna - The Pass of Storms
Jumbo's Jack Donnison says "Ethereal, delicately delivered folk with a romantic focus on the immensity of nature... Heavy with lush harmonies and plinking, gauzy strings: this cultivates an atmosphere all of its own. If you haven't, do!"
