Second in our series of sporadic signposts towards music that we like is this tune from a compilation released to raise funds for a “monthly sonic exploration event” in deepest darkest Worcestershire. We haven’t been, so don’t know if it’s any good, but this track is fantastic and makes us want to turn the hi-fi up until the deaf bloke next door starts banging on the wall.
The compilation is available for whatever you can pay here, and the track in question “Wiederholen Gruppe 99” by the ever-excellent Soundhog can be watched simultaneously with an old skiing film below.
Just a quick notice that the wonderful Wintergreen’s single “Autumn Leaves/Clockwork Mice” is now available to buy direct from here as both a 7″ record and a digital download in the format of your choice. If you’ve not heard the tracks you can always go to the bandcamp site and take a listen, or you could head over to YouTube to acquaint yourself further with their seductive noises. Here’s the other track from the single (we posted the other on Monday), Clockwork Mice:
After spending a significant wedge of time dotting the ‘t’s and crossing the ‘i’s (well at least as long as it took to realise we should be doing it the other way around) we have set everything in place to (re)release Wintergreen’s “Autumn Leaves/Clockwork Mice”. Their second single (and first on Tbilissi), it was initially released in August 2005, but it never received the publicity it merited.
Nowadays with the improved ability of virtual outlets to allow music to be released flexibly and without prohibitive overheads (yawn, boring!) we can allow it to be heard again. So we can announce that it will be available to buy on digital download (in a smörgåsbord of formats) or as a wonderful slab of 7″ vinyl ready to spin around on your turntable (but also with a free download for your portable player of choice) from Friday 20th September.
Yes, we know that’s this Friday. Once we managed to get everything ready we just couldn’t wait any longer. That’s how things work in the digital age y’know. Or something.
Tell you what – here’s the AL-side of the single “Autumn Leaves”.
Yes, we’ve been a little quiet for a few months or so (due to a release from Simon from Vermont’s new band Cosines), but we’re gearing up for yet another reissue of previous Tbilissi magic. We are jumping ahead of ourselves a little chronologically, but the reason for that will become clear soon enough.
The next reissue will be the single Autumn Leaves/Clockwork Mice by Wintergreen. Originally released in the summer of 2005 this single was lovingly created by the band and delicately licenced to Tbilissi to release. Keep your eyes peeled for the next update.
In the meantime you can visit the newly-minted Tbilissi Bandcamp page to see the (albeit limited) releases available virtually so far. There will be more. Just you wait…
