In case you didn’t already know, there is a new Wave Pictures EP out on Monday, on the Moshi Moshi label. Six sweet tracks, with title track ‘Just Like A Drummer’ being lifted from the fabulous Instant Coffee Baby set that’s surely one of the frontrunners for that ‘album of the year’ moniker that we all like to throw around in a kind of notional game, but so seldom actually ever settle on deciding. Well, I never seem to be able to decide it, at least. There always seem to be too many contenders vying for my heart; it just never seems fair to make those final distinctions.
I played the very excellent ‘Hotels And Motels’ off the EP on the radio last weekend – I hope you managed to catch that. It fitted so nicely with the whole ‘holiday’ mood / theme and of course slotted in with the Indietracks segment. If you didn’t catch them there, then maybe you’ll get chance through August. Here’s the dates:

Tue 12th - Leeds (UK) @ The Library
Wed 13th - TBA
Thu 14th - Aberdeen (UK) @ Tunnels
