FUTURE OF THE LEFT ‘HOW TO STOP YOUR BRAIN IN AN ACCIDENT’ OUT NOW

Future of the Left - ”how to stop your brain in an accident” is out now through Prescriptions/Remote Control.

Recorded by Charlie Francis (R.E.M, The Noisettes, Sweet Baboo) at the prestigious Monnow Valley Studios in Monmouth, and mastered by Sean Magee at Abbey Road Studios, it contains fourteen songs and runs to/at/on 46 minutes, all of which are completely necessary. if you are alive and even vaguely in love with the idea of rock music being more than an ersatz lifestyle choice then it is clearly their best album yet. Yes, they would say that.  No, it’s not open to debate.

The album is also accompanied by mini album, Human Death, which was recorded during the same album session. It is available on the same release date and sold separately. The 6 songs on this are by no means lesser in quality. They are album worthy but simply did not fit on the record. After an extremely prolific period of writing the band wanted to record as much as possible, hence these additional songs in the form of this extra mini album.

According to the band’s producer Benjamin Plant, ‘REAL SLOW’ was written around similar personal experiences that they were having at the time. “It’s about finding that place or person where you feel secure enough to take things slowly. We wanted to write a song that is more than just a concept, we wanted to write about something we were actually experiencing rather than something imagined. We wanted to see how that emotion translated into our music. I’ve never been a huge fan of listening to songs about love, no matter how painful or joyous they are, they can seem mediocre, but once you have those experiences for yourself then suddenly, all those songs make sense and become something you can really feel.”

NEW SISTER JANE SINGLE ‘WHOLE WIDE WORLD’ + TOUR DATES

SISTER JANE NEW SINGLE ‘WHOLE WIDE WORLD’ & SECOND ALBUM ANNOUNCEMENT


Sydney five piece Sister Jane are proud to announce the release of their new single ‘Whole Wide World’ out Tuesday 15th October via Broken Stone Records / Remote Control. ‘Whole Wide World’ is lifted off the bands second record Frontier, set for release early 2014.

‘Whole Wide World’ is a track that is equal parts sonic sidestep and emotional evolution. The song also hints at the sprawling soundscapes and sweeping imagery at the heart of their forthcoming second record. Frontier will see the Sydney five-piece channel their trademark electricity into an accomplished studio effort.

‘Whole Wide World’ is a treatise on new beginnings and epic ambition. The track was recorded between an abandoned schoolhouse in Wauchope (NSW) and guitarist Liam Judson’s Sydney studio. Mastering duties were taken care of by Grammy award-winning producer William Bowden. Judson’s riffs recall the cinematic splendour of Echo And The Bunnymen, spiked with traces of post-punk and Dan Davey’s vocals – reminiscent of Britpop hedonism – are an exercise in narrative swagger. Elsewhere, Michaela Davies’ bass lends Lauren Crew’s sixties-soaked keyboards a tougher edge while an urgent drumbeat showcases Joe Driver’s technical progression and doubles as Krautrock-inflected call to arms.

The product of a fiercely collaborative ethos, ‘Whole Wide World’ is both a musical departure and a coming of age. It’s also proof of a band at the height of its powers – an unconstrained yet accessible musical foray.
