Broken Records - Out On The Water EP

Broken Records announced last month that their Out On The Water EP will be digitally released by 4AD on November 2nd to coincide with their mini-UK tour which kicks off the next day in York. The tracklisting is ....

Out On The Water EP:
1. Out On The Water
2. The Crumbling Wall
3. Lessons Never Learnt
4. A Warning
5. All So Tired

This cracking wee collection of songs recorded prior to the Until The Earth Begins To Part sessions is more folk-y than their outstanding debut album and while it may lack the energy of songs like "A Good Reason" and "If The News.....", the almost stripped back feel shows a new side to the Edinburgh 7-piece. In particular the slow-burning "A Warning" has crept into their live shows over the last year or so and is fast becoming a personal favourite.

The November tour dates are ....

3rd - The Duchess, York
4th - Masque Theatre, Liverpool
5th - Bush Hall, London
6th - The Cooler, Bristol
7th - Tait Hall, Kelso
8th - Oran Mor, Glasgow
10th - Perth Theatre, Perth
11th - Cafe Drummond, Aberdeen
12th - Ironworks, Inverness
13th - Skinandies, Thurso

Here's a recent cover of the Beatles' "Oh! Darling".
