Yellow Vinyl!

Today, Bumblebee is coming out on a split seven inch. Isn't the yellow vinyl pretty? like the rising sun of summer. And look at that cover...I can't wait to hold one in my hands (very soon!), let alone put it on the record player. You can go and get yourself a copy from the excellent folks at Autumn Ferment Records. I will celebrate in San Francisco on July 20th (an amazing bill at the Cafe du Nord)- and throughout California over the summer. Check the side bar for details - and let me know if you'd like me to play a town near you!

Elk, berries and trees

...are some of the things I saw on my little summer solstice hiking trip up in Point Reyes. I also saw coyotes at sundown near the beach, stayed in a magical house in Bolinas, spent a long time near enchanted creeks and saw so many trees it made my heart sing. My heart sings! and the stars of course...ah, summer.

Midsummer Split Single

The wonderful Scottish label Autumn Ferment Records is starting the Seasonal Sevens, a collection of 7" vinyl releases for each season. I am honored to be part of the first installment this summer, alongside the delightful Emily Scott. Please read below for details:

“Afternoon folks!
Yes, we are delighted to announce that this summer Autumn Ferment starts a collection of seasonally inspired 7" records, the Seasonal Sevens. We thought it would be a rather nice idea to release a 7” vinyl for every season, starting with summer and running through to spring next year. Each 7” will be a split release, highlighting two artists that we feel are quite special. Each 7” will come on lovely coloured vinyl representing the season in question. Each 7” will be strictly kept to a very limited pressing of 300 copies only and will be all hand numbered.
Starting off our seasonal collection will be the fantastic Emily Scott and Hélène Renaut on the summer installment, released on the 29th of June with pre-orders being taken on the 22nd of June. Be sure to get in early and get yourself the first release in the series.

Thanks for your time,
AFR xx”
