Danish musician Hannah Schneider is bringing her dreamy electro-infused singer/songriter sound to the UK for a run of dates in June. Following her debut UK album release of “Red Lines” on British indie Lojinx (on Mermaid/Sony in Denmark) Hannah will be bringing her epic one-woman show to the UK for only the second time. Performing all instrumentation herself whilst looping and singing infectious hooks and harmonies, audiences can’t fail to be impressed.

We're excited to announce that Fred Abbott has joined the Lojinx family and that The Guardian have premiered his debut track Funny How Good It Feels today.
Fred's debut solo album "Serious Poke", will be released on Lojinx in July. He enlisted the help of his Noah And The Whale compadres and other friends for the recording of the album, with sessions taking place at West London’s British Grove Studios over the past year. The album was co-produced by Fred with Martin Hollis, whose diverse credits include Grinderman, The Rolling Stones and Take That.
2015 is already a landmark year in two-time Grammy winners They Might Be Giants‘ illustrious career. With the return of their Dial-A-Song service, the band have been posting a new track and accompanying music video every week to unanimous exclamations of joy from fans old and new.
In celebration, the band is releasing GLEAN on 20th April via Lojinx in Europe. It includes 16 songs direct from these first weeks of their Dial-A-Song service. The range of these recordings is truly staggering. From the manic violin-driven ‘Music Jail, Pt. 1 & 2‘ to the bluesy grinding of ‘Underwater Woman,’ Glean comprises some of They Might Be Giants’ most vital work of their 30+ year career. With the album, TMBG’s sound is in equal turns as rocking, surprising, effervescent, and truly original as they have ever been. The highly anticipated album is produced with long-time collaborator Pat Dillett (St. Vincent, Mary J. Blige, David Byrne, Donald Fagen, etc), and comes hot on the heels of 2013’s fan-favourite Nanobots.
