Wildbirds & Peacedrums : Fight For Me
Wildbirds & Peacedrums' masterful The Snake took the prize as this blog's favourite album of last year, although I later found out that, strictly speaking, it was a 2008 release. The Swedish duo have some brand new material on the way: the Retina EP will be released on May 10th, and they're giving away a track from it, the superb 'Fight For Me', to anyone who signs up for the Leaf Label mailing list:
The track heads in a darker, more sinister direction, with ominous percussion and Gregorian-chant-style backing vocals from the Reykjavík Chamber Choir. Much like their previous release, it sounds like nothing else around.
The Retina EP will be followed in June by the Iris EP. Both vinyl-only EP's will then be combined for the LP Rivers, to be released in August.
