Derbyshire based trio Haiku Salut conquered our ears with their sweet and quirky melodies and arrangements, crafted mostly using accordions, pianos, glockenspiels and ukuleles. Made up of Gemma and Sophie Barkerwood and Louise Croft, the band's two albums, Tricolore and Etch and Etch Deep, display their inventiveness and opens a window onto their unique and magical musical world, part folk, part classical and tinged with electronic influences. So we're thrilled to bits to start September with a marvellous mix of tracks picked by the band!
Joined Sometimes Unjoined, the second album from London based singer-songwriter Rozi Plain aka Rosalind Leyden, came out last week via Fence Records and Need No Water Records.
To coincide with the release, Rozi Plain debuted a video for the album’s opening track ‘Cold Tap’, also featuring an excerpt of ‘Days Minutes’ off Joined Sometimes Unjoined. Brothers James & Mark Hankins, members of OLO Worms, directed the video. Watch it below.
