Festival news

Jet will be playing solo at “How the Light Gets in”, music and philosophy festival, alongside the Hay on Wye Literature Festival, in May and at The End of the Road Festival with “Folk Tales” in Dorset in August. We’ll probably sneak in The Woodlice for End of the Road and play in the woods. Keep your antennae out and your tiny legs crossed.

“Certain Gifts” Album Out on 4th June

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.

New Album on its Way. Hand Mixed. Hand Printed

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…

Woodlice checking out the Sunlight

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.
