We're excited and proud to announce My World Was Made For You, the debut album from The Icypoles!
Isobel, Kim, Lani and Tara are the Icypoles and they've been around for a few years now, wistfully harmonising at all the classy joints in Melbourne and surrounds, spreading the word with their earnest, understated tales of newfound crushes and stifled relationships.
Wrapped up in gentle guitar strums, 'sixties bass tones and primary school percussion, My World Was Made For You was expertly produced by Haima Marriott (Architecture in Helsinki, Still Flyin') and emits a slow-burning warm glow that belies its debut album status.
Pre-order My World Was Made For You now on CD and/or vinyl and it will be shipped to you much earlier than the release date of Friday May 2. Customers in the US and Europe, please visit Highline Records and if you're in New Zealand, drop Lil' Chief a line!
The Icypoles perform songs from My World Was Made For You plus other favourites on a cosy Sunday afternoon at the sparkly new Shebeen bandroom in Melbourne, with very special guests Lehmann B. Smith and Easy Money Club!
Hot on the heels of the new vinyl edition of The Lucksmiths' Warmer Corners album of 2005, we are excited to announce the spankin' new bumper best-of CD Cartography For Beginners!
With cover artwork by Mia Schoen (Sleepy Township, New Estate) and liner notes by good friend and longtime co-conspirator Darren Hanlon, Cartography For Beginners compiles 35 gems from The Lucksmiths' behemoth back catalog and is a perfect introduction to the Lucksmiths novice and a ramble down memory lane for old fans who may have lost their treasured Lucksmiths CD on a summer road trip sometime in the late-90s.
Please note, this is a co-release with ace US label Matinée Recordings, so American customers, please drop Jimmy a line and say hi from us!
It’s hard to believe that it’s four years since The Lucksmiths said their goodbyes — harder still that it’s twenty since they introduced themselves in the first place. To mark the occasion, Lost And Lonsesome have teamed up with ol' mates Matinée Recordings of California to announce the first-ever release on glorious 12-inch vinyl of the band’s career-defining 2005 album Warmer Corners.
Limited to 500 hand-numbered copies worldwide, the vinyl edition of Warmer Corners (complete with download codes for the full album) will be available in all good Australian record shops from November 29.
Or why not visit the merchandise table at the official launch at the Lost And Lonesome 15th birthday party (see post below) and score yourself a bargain priced copy, along with some other fabulous — and highly reduced — items!
