Exciting times all-round as Howlround unveil a brand new vinyl LP and perform alongside Stephan Mathieu for his first UK live appearance since 2012. This latest release, a split with Italian composer Marta De Pascalis, will be released by The Wormhole on May 18th, but is already available to pre-order via The TouchShop. Strictly limited edition of 200, you’d be advised not to sleep on this one!
Limited copies will be available for purchase at Iklectik on the night, weeks ahead of the release date – and this is entirely fitting as both sides of the LP were recorded in the same evening at that very same venue last year, to mark the 100th release on Wormhole sister label The Tapeworm. Further information and tickets can be found here.
Thanks also to Dexter Bentley and The Hello Goodbye Show team for having me last Saturday, particularly the ever-lovely and patient engineers Isa and Ilia, who are old hands by now at putting up with my slightly strange requirements. The show featured a live improvised Howlround set alongside sets from The Monochrome Set and The Reverse. The set appeared to go down very well and I’m reliably informed the entire building was shaking, which I’m going to take as a mark of quality. I’ll be going back over the recording once I get a moment and doing a spot of remastering and general nipping and tucking, but the entire show, in all its madcap glory can be enjoyed here:
