Ten o’clock and all is well
April fools, string of shells
Countless blanks fired at will
Rocks upon the window sill
Christmas is coming soon…

Steve McQueen, high school girls
Blow a kiss, sandy pearls
Bullet holes, hidden scars
Making love in a stolen car
Christmas is coming soon…

Carefully she climbs up into the tree
Her radio sits below in the snow
Fill the night with songs
As she waits for dawn

Christmas is coming soon

Donkey kong, candle wax
Muddy stains on brand new slacks
Ten o’clock and all is well
Messy hair and jingle bells
Christmas is coming soon…

Following yesterday’s premiere in The Guardian, Fred Abbott’s solo debut is now available for free download via Soundcloud.

Fred Abbott will release his debut solo album, Serious Poke, on 20th July. The London-based musician, until now best known as lead guitarist and keyboard player in the recently disbanded Noah And The Whale, previews the album with a free download of the pop-rock gem, Funny How Good It Feels.

A supremely talented multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, Fred Abbott joined Noah And The Whale in 2009 and went on to huge success with that group, especially notable being his contribution to 2011‘s Platinum-selling and highly acclaimed Last Night On Earth.

Abbott enlisted the help of his Noah And The Whale compadres and other friends for the recording of Serious Poke, 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.

Serious Poke will be released on Lojinx on 20th July.

Decades before there was such a thing as “going viral,” quirky, pioneering college rockers They Might Be Giants were paving the way for the current generation of YouTubers, Vine stars, and Internet pranksters. And they did it totally analog-style.

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of They Might Be Giants classic album ‘Flood’, the band and Yahoo Music are premiering a free download of the full album, recorded live in Australia. Read more >>

Irish duo The Lost Brothers announce new Christmas single featuring members of The Frames and more…

“Little Angel” is offered as a free download but the band ask that people make a donation to a children’s charity of their choice this Christmas, or purchase the digital single from any good download store, with 100% of profit going to UNICEF (

“Little Angel” started seven years ago as a rough demo recorded in an attic in Portland, Oregon. The song lived in a drawer with The Lost Brothers archives until inspiration hit earlier this year while crossing the Irish Sea during a rocky winter storm. Out came the guitars and the remaining verses and choruses were written in one sitting.

To record the song California native Sean Coleman, now living in Dublin, was called in to produce at Gavin Glass’s Orphan Studios. Some of Dublin’s stellar musicians were recruited to record the song with sessions featuring The Frames’ Graham Hopkins on drums, Michael Buckley and Ronan Dooney from Glen Hansard’s band arranging the brass, bass is played by Keith Duffy and The Lost Brothers on vocals and guitars. A rich musical friendship lay at the roots of the recording as The Lost Brothers had toured with some of these players across the US when supporting Glen Hansard on tour.

The digital single includes second track ‘St Christopher’, a cosmic Christmas ballad written and recorded in the Lost Brothers’ spiritual home of Liverpool. Produced by Domino recording artist Bill Ryder-Jones (The Coral), the song features special guest Drew McConnell (Babyshambles, Fionn Regan) on bass guitar and Ryder-Jones on piano.

They Might Be Giants have a gift for you! The entire first album recorded live on the 2013 tour!

These performances were culled from shows on They Might Be Giants’ 2013 world tour.  John Flansburgh and John Linnell are joined by their stellar band — Dan Miller on the guitar, 

Danny Weinkauf on bass, and Marty Beller on the drums. There is also a guest appearance by the Avatars of They. 


They Might Be Giants’ first album, also known as the “pink album” because of the distinctive pink skyline in Rodney Allen Greenblat’s cover illustration,” was a turning point for both the band and the burgeoning world of indie rock.

They Might Be Giants had been performing in downtown NYC clubs and had become a fixture on the East Village scene where performance art and music flowed together in a vivid late night club scene. In those earlier years, the band was making recordings for their Dial-A-Song service and their demos were actively passed around town. While the album’s release in late 1986 was met with raves from critics (including the rare “A” rating from the Village Voice’s Robert Christgau), with no major label push or immediate radio interest, it seemed destined to settle comfortably into the Miscellaneous T section within a number of months. All that would change quickly when the band collaborated with video director Adam Bernstein, on a series of original clips that would get serious play on MTV…

Download ”Coming Home”, an outtake from Blitzen Trapper‘s new album VII.  ”With this track we wanted to lay down some good old-fashioned country funk, with horns and banjos side by side,” Eric Early says. “It recalls the swampy truck stop sounds of Jim Ford or Mac Davis, telling ourselves that home is just around the bend.”
