New Website

Morning all,

With a new year comes a new album, some new tour dates and a whole heap of new online goings on for us.

First and foremost we've decided to relaunch our blog with a new look and a new address so from now on head over to for all the latest updates.

We've also started a tumblr where we'll post up a whole heap of stuff we stumble across on the internet and like the look of that's over at

And as ever for all things musical head to which has all sorts of free tracks, links to buy physical and digital releases as well as all the latest tour dates

And to just hear us wittering (should that be twittering) on head to

So lots of ways of keeping up, thanks for reading this blog and we hope you follow us over onto our new technological frontiers,

The Last Happy Writer

So we've got a new album coming out on Oddbox Records on Feb 13th and we wanted to give you all a sneak preview of what to expect from it.

We like to think the track (The Last Happy Writer) shows a different side to us that previous single "Sleep" and forthcoming single "Every Morning and for the Rest of our Lives" don't. After all we don't want you buying the album and getting a shock!

Album Of The Year 2011

And now the end is near, and so I face my final curtain, My friends i'll say it's album of the year, I'll state my case of which i'm (sort of) certain

Number 1

So there you have it my album of the year is the brilliant effort from Other Lives in there second album Tamer Animals. Why is it album of the year I hear you cry? Well because it's new, it's different, it's exciting. From the moment they wandered onto a stage at End Of The Road I knew i'd like this band, they just had it! They had beards, and all sorts of instruments and a girl shaking antlers with bells on like a tambourine! They blew me away in that little tend and I rushed out after the festival and picked up Tamer Animals. It's just wonderful, it's an aural delight, the sort of album that just creates a mood and an atmosphere and sucks you into it. Shades of Midlake, Local Natives and Fleet Foxes but ultimately a sound all their own and one I personally adore!

It was a tough call with so many great albums this year but we have a winner, see you in 12 months time for yet another epic battle. Can't wait to hear what the likes of The Shins, Field Music and everyone else has in store for us
