Here’s the new video for “Bad Girls Busy”, the first song off the album “Certain Gifts” out 4th June.
It was recorded in Si’s kitchen using a Hollywood budget of £4.00. (£1.00 for each shoe from the local charity shop)
The new album “Certain Gifts” is out on the 4th June through Undergrowth Records.
You can get a listen and buy it here at Bandcamp.
But for the freshly minted smelling of ink straight from the letterpress, CD version, and smelling of band straight from the shower, live version, come to the launch night at The Greenbank in Bristol on the 4th June 8pm.
The new Woodlice Album “Certain Gifts” is in the microwave and it’s about to go ping.
Mixed by Jet and recorded in Forest Studios we reckon it’s a tiny gem of folk pop beauty.
Not only that but Jet has been busy hand printing the sleeves for the limited run of CDs on an old
printing press brought all the way from Geneva by the Bristol Letterpress Collective (Jet will be doing a solo set at the collective
during their “Politics of Print” Festival on Sat 24th May)
The Album Launch will be at “Undergrowth” night Wed 4th June at The Greenbank Pub Bristol
Here’s a picture of the typeset that Jet put together on the printing press…
The new Woodlice album is coming to completion. All the mixes are done, just needs a bit of mastering and a pile of damp wood to nibble on. Jet is going on a letterpress printing workshop to handmake and print the CD sleeves and then its good to go. Niceing it up. Lice style.
Poster for our Gallimaufry gig last night. Like the aqua tint.. woodlice are sea dwelling Crustaceans…
Hey damp woodpile snufflers we’re still larking around in the Undergrowth. We’re mixing dem tunes and the album should be with you this side of the Summer Solstice, just before they start throwing the logs on the fire. I’ll put a track up when it’s good to go.
Here’s a pic of a young fan pointing out our talent on the “Everybody’s Got A Beard” video…check out the Beards on the video page….
Down in Forest Studios The Woodlice spent a weekend chomping out a new album. A bit more recording and mixing in the New Year and it’ll be nibbling your stereo by Spring.
Keep your antennae up and your woodpile damp.
