Vessels – Dilate



What’s it been, four years? You look great, how’s the kids, are you wearing brogues????

Yep, it takes us a while with these things, four years to be precise, of poring and labouring over every sound and noise and click and whistle and tickle and belve. But it’s here, our third album, Dilate, will be gleeting its way into your ear canals in March. Thanks to Leeds legend Adam Nodwell for the immense artwork!

You can pre-order the album from our shop either on its tod or in a t-shirt bundulator!

To get the ball rolling we’re releasing ‘On Monos‘ today in our shop and tomorrow everywhere else. Featuring the immensual vocals of Snow Fox. Wrap your tendrils around the sonic asparagus that is our latest single:

And Vimeo

aaaaaand to further skelge your bevels we’re giving away an IMMEDIATE download of the album version to anyone who pre-orders the album.

New Music From Lee J. Malcolm: Jinjé – Amya

The multi-faceted talent that is our Lee has notched up another release, this time under the name Jinjé. Lead track Amya is available to listen to above, and it’s an absolute stonker (with easily one of the cheekiest vocal samples I’ve ever heard). The single will be available through Messrs. Kick and Drum Records on 15th September 2014, and a sampler vid for all 3 tracks can be found here. Enjoy!

Epic Fail Foot Sound

Dear Friends

We’re home and rested after an amazing weekend, and hope that those of you who joined us are too. We wanted to offer a few words of explanation, and apology, regarding the insurmountable hurdles that led to our pulling the show at Fell Foot Sound.

Our setup is intricate and complex. And on that Saturday night, despite large amounts of effort from everyone involved, we couldn’t get it to work. This is a first for us. It meant that we could not perform our show. After three mortifying false starts, we let Lee and Tim takeover with some improvisation instead – using whatever was still working.

We spent several more hours trying to fix things, but the following morning, after another couple of hours of double checking, we had to concede defeat. This pains us all very much. It is without a doubt an enormously disappointing and regrettable scenario.

We’d like to offer an unreserved apology to every single person who had turned out to see us, and to the wonderful organisers of Feel Foot Sound, who we must reiterate, were in no way responsible for what happened, and further to that, were tremendously professional and compassionate in the face of our flaccid offering…

We’d like to make it up to as many of you as we can, as soon as is appropriate. We take what we do tremendously seriously, so please accept our deepest apologies, stay in touch and we’ll put this right!

with love
