PJ Harvey- The Words that Maketh Murder

Today sees the download release of The Words That Maketh Murder, the first single from PJ Harvey’s new album, “Let England Shake”. The single sees a physical 7” release on 7th Feb, one week before the album.

The single is accompanied by the release of the second in a series of short films by Seamus Murphy, to compliment each of the 12 album tracks. Each film is a reportage of his travels across the country, filming and photographing the mundane.

The video for The Words that Maketh Murder includes footage of Polly singing with an autoharp, and ballroom dancing in Blackpool.

Harvey continues to prove herself as a classical English songstress on the record which includes monkesque chanting and a piston singalong stomp.

ARCHERS OF LOAF REUNION

Archers of Loaf have reunited to play their first show in nearly 13 years. The US indie rock legends played an unannounced show on Jan 15th at Cats Cradle, in their home town of Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

The unannounced show supporting local band, the Love Language is their first show together since splitting in 1998 due to Drummer, Mark Price, developing an illness and calling time on the band time on the band.

Releasing for albums in the mid to late 90’s the alt-rock heroes reached cult status and toured with the likes of Sebadoh and Pavement, and were key players in the US indie Lo Fi scene.
