Our new demo this week comes from Brighton-based solo artist Michael Aston. Listen to his track "Disparity" here!
'Heartleap', Vashti Bunyan's first new album in nine years is due out on Monday, and Pitchfork are hosting a full stream of the album right now. The record is receiving unanimous acclaim, with Uncut calling it “gorgeous… a finely-stitched tapestry of immense beauty,” Stereogum writing that “Bunyan’s new music has a directness that hits you like nothing else right now, and a purity that sounds completely removed from any time or style," and The Arts Desk calling it “perhaps her best album yet”.
Read more about the record and preorder the album on CD, vinyl, digital or in a bundle with a canvas tote bag and A2 poster via the FatCat store.

"History is a circle so here's seven songs of the past/future/present of Gentle Friendly. From the ones we finished this year for our new record to the ones that got lost along the way, these songs are where we are, were and will be as a band in 2014 - it feels like we've come a huge long way. Sing new songs over the old ones."
