The Posies lean, mean, touring machine has extended it’s return to European shores with additional dates in Spain, promoting their new album Solid States for 3 weeks of shows that also cover the UK, Netherlands and Belgium.

After a triumphant run of dates across Europe in March & April the newly revitalised trio-format band head back to Europe in October, following a 27-date run of secret shows in the US.

The band have always been exploring, growing and 2016 sees them continuing in that vein. None of US shows were in conventional music venues, with the location only revealed to ticket holders not more than 24 hours in advance of each show. The band are now touring as a trio, with no bass player, and Solid States collaborator Frankie Siragusa on drums. New album, Solid States, was not recorded in the usual band-in-a-room manner. Stringfellow and Auer sent song ideas back and forth online, writing and largely recording the album separately – but collaboratively – in their home studios.

The autumn tour now starts in Huelva, Spain, on 20th October, ending on 9th November in Diksmuide, Belgium. Solid States is out now Lojinx CD, digital and heavyweight vinyl LP.

The all-star project with Jim Kerr unfolds a subtle magic

Basically, one has I already do not feel like 1, an album more hear when behind each item with the stupid word “featuring” a guest post angekündigt is because it is often only the usual tribute stuff follows. And first in the moments one feels here a bit like in the shallow Radio landscape in which PetitessenPop a la Marit Larsen duration whispers.

But after a few unfolds Stucken The debut of one The Dark Flowers subtle, sinister magic.

Behind the alleged all-star project puts the English producer Paul Statham (Dido, Kylie Minogue), the “radio land” as a soundtrack to the book “The Motel Chronicles “,the autobiography of the actor and playwright Sam Shephard.

With it, he invited a handful of singers into the studio to his carefully tramping electronic beats, guitars and banjo sounds a melodic structure to give. Best manage the Jim Kerr of Simple Minds, the force his sonorous voice to the otherwise rather sallow Stucken one be easily recognisable gives. Some songs are however especially beguiling in its simplicity, about which of Shelly Poole infinitely delicate singing “All The Time Running”. Or if Catherine AD in “Aim For The Heart” balances between Beth Gibbons and Polly Jean Harvey.

In the end, no one knows exactly what’s going on: the somnambulant awesome elevator music of Brian Eno and the banalities of The Corrs? possibly indecision, the soundtrack only without the film.”“
