Stream The Bonnevilles’ ‘Long Runs the Fox’ for Free

Northern Ireland duo The Bonnevilles have shared a free stream of ‘Long Runs the Fox’ from their latest album Dirty Photographs, out on March 16 via Alive Natural Sound Records.

It’s the follow-up to their 2016 effort Arrow Pierce My Heart. The new album is more upbeat than their previous outing.

“There’s an emotion of positivity on these songs, rather than the usual tales of woe.  Most of the tracks are upbeat, or have a positive message, a message of love or even just plain old fashioned sex.  I know others have written a world of songs about those things but we haven’t, so we thought it was our time to jump in,” guitarist Andrew McGibbon Jr. said in a statement.

He’s upfront about the subject matter of ‘Long Runs the Fox’; “It’s a poem of tribute to my wife’s bum.  She’s very pretty and does have a lovely one.”

Videos for a Lazy Sunday: Glass Bottom Boat’s ‘Equinox’

Videos for a Lazy Sunday: Ride’s ‘Catch You Dreaming’

Ride has shared the Niall Trask-directed video for ‘Catch You Dreaming’ from their new EP Tomorrow’s Shore out now via Wichita Recordings.

“For me the song evoked feelings of human memory, time and travel. So it seemed natural to capture it visually with collage. We incorporated the wave element so familiar in Ride’s art direction, their foundations in Banbury, the energy of a live show, all bound together with a performance scenario,” Trask said in a press release.

It’s the second single from the EP, which follows their 2017 album Weather Diaries, their first release in 20 years. The band joined forces with producer Erol Alkan and mixer Alan Moulder. Moulder also worked with them on their albums Nowhere and Going Blank Again.

Signing to Wichita Records saw them once again working with Dick Green and Mark Bowen, who worked with them during their early years on Creation Records.

“We wanted to call to mind our more humble origins and the first demo recording sessions we did together back in 1988. Some personal memorabilia from that time also features in the video including photos, sketches, posters, and even the original four-track we recorded our first demo on!” Ride’s Loz Colbert said in a statement.

“‘Catch You Dreaming’ is written from the perspective of being one of the last two people alive, watching as the Universe is ending. The protagonist looks back over the time when humanity existed, realising that we as humans brought about our own inevitable demise. Then the couple look back over their own lives of shared memories and as they are sharing this moment, everything vaporises. It’s a love song about fate, nostalgia, and having no regrets,” his bandmate Andy Bell added.

The track was written during the sessions for Weather Diaries.

French artist Fishbach, aka Flora Fishbach, has shared the video for ‘Eternite’ from her debut album A ta merci.

She rocketed to stardom in her native France following the album’s release in early 2017.

Videos for a Lazy Sunday: Fischerspooner’s ‘Butterscotch Goddam’

Fischerspooner have shared the Carlo Van de Roer-directed video for ‘Butterscotch Goddam’ from Sir, their first album in nearly a decade, out now on Ultra Records.

Sir was produced by Michael Stipe of REM in Athens, Georgia with contributions from Stipe’s close collaborator Andy LeMaster along with additional production by BOOTS (Beyonce, Run The Jewels, FKA Twigs). The album was mixed by both Stuart White (Beyonce’s Lemonade) and LeMaster. It also features contributions by Spooner’s longtime collaborator Le Chev and Thomas Haskett.

“The song is about a tumultuous love affair. We shot the video entirely in-camera, using optical devices and new filmmaking tools to play with the push and pull of a dichotomous relationship, and the accumulating distortion of reality that comes with that,” Van de Roer said in a statement.

Catch Fischerspooner on the following dates;

March 14 – San Francisco, CA @ Regency Ballroom
March 15 – Los Angeles, CA @ The Fonda Theatre
March 16 – Santa Ana, CA @ The Observatory

Videos for a Lazy Sunday: Marieme’s ‘Leave’

Marieme has shared the video for ‘Leave’ from her self-titled EP.

The artist left Senegal for a new start in the US and the sacrifices she made influenced her music.

“Change starts with us and that is why ‘Leave’ is the first song I made two days after I left everything behind,” Marieme said in an e-mail. “The video perfectly represents this idea, it’s simple, natural, and intuitive and powerful. It’s me holding a mirror up to myself, facing reality. Leaving everything behind by taking everything off and ending up at the beach.”

She was born into a war between Senegal and Mauritania, an upbringing that informs her music. Marieme plays the Rockwood Music Hall, Stage 2 on March 7.
