“After 16 years The Lucksmiths called it a day last year and this 7″ single is their posthumous farewell.

Get-To-Bed Birds is the last song Marty Donald wrote for the band and for those with their eye on the ball they would have noted this track was previously released on The Matinée Grand Prix earlier this year.  However it’s worthy of a release on glorious vinyl such is it’s jangling charms and that oh so classic Lucksmiths sound which will be undoubtedly missed.” indie-mp3

Weekly POPcast #17: Lipstik Lipsing live session

Posted in Live Band Session, Podcast with tags , , , , on 26/09/2010 by Outerbeat

Just like a four leave clover, it’s hard to find but lucky to have, they say. Fourth Wednesday is also a lucky day for both us and our listeners everywhere, ’cause we give you a live performance from local decent (we think) new emerging bands.

This time we had Lipstik Lipsing, 5 pieces dreamy pop act hailing from Semarang, the capitol of Central Java. Formed in early 2008, they have released a debut 6 tracks EP called ‘Room For Outside‘ a year later on July 2009 in DIY ethic. The highly acclaimed debut EP has received many positive responses around the country so far.

They played two special acoustic version of Suburban Love and Puertorico. And we also played some bands which the band consider as big influences like The Radio Dept and M83.

We also played an upcoming single from the debut album of The Hi-Life Companion, a powerpop-ish act hailing from Bristol. They will release a debut album with respectable Peruvian DIY label, Plastilina Records, late of this year.
