As ever, the RSD celebrations roll on through the weekend and we'll be hosting our annual Record Store Day Live event with the help of our friends Café Thirty8 (www.thirty-8.com). We'll have a whole afternoon of great live music from midday on Sunday 22nd and we can announce that this year we'll be joined by:
The rising four-piece absolutely blew us away last year with perfect harmonies and intricate chamber-pop from their debut album 'The Loved Ones'. Their a capella rendition of 'Faithless' was among 2017's highlights for us. https://www.facebook.com/SoundKnowledgeMarlborough/videos/1646080325426441/
The British-based Australian singer-songwriter is among our most-capped acts here. She's appeared solo and as part of groups Vena Portae and Applewood Road, gathering more acclaim with each visit. Her most recent album 'Sweet Kind of Blue' saw her named Artist of the Year at February's UK Americana Awards.
We enjoyed this band so much at last year's event that we've asked them to come back. They've since released their debut album 'I Am Because We Are', available on CD in-store now, with their soaring vocals and power-house trio musicianship drawing comparisons to Jeff Buckley, Pearl Jam and John Mayer.
BAND OF THE UNDERHAND
Soulful rock 'n' roll from the Old Kent Road, featuring former members of Big Audio Dynamite II, Curiosity Killed the Cat, Under Two Flags and Lightning Strike. There's a good chance Band of the Underhand have played with or tuned the guitars and drums of half your record collection. We'll have an exclusive RSD CD single on the day.
Regulars on the local scene with original songs and covers in a rootsy blend of alt-country, indie and Americana.
This is not a ticketed event, all comers welcome. In addition to the Café Thirty8 venue there'll be an outside bar and BBQ, and of course the shop will be open throughout to mop up any remaining RSD goodies or anything else that might catch your eye!
