Thrilling news…

Chiswick Oxjam was absolutely corking, thanks so much to all who came down to our warmup set at the Eagle or our headline slot at the Tabard! All the other bands we saw were just brilliant (particular shout out to the lovely Tim Jones & the Dark Lanterns for their trad-influenced, harmony-drenched slices of folky sunshine) and it was a real honour to play for such brilliant audiences and for such a great cause. Speaking of great causes – Chiswick Oxjam raised £18,000 for Oxfam this year! Amazing.

Next up is our Halloween “Thriller” gig at the Good Ship next Thursday 31st October, where we and 8 other bands will each be covering a song from Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” album! Tickets are only £3 and it will be HEAPS of fun, so come along and see what SUPER SECRET SONG we’ll be playing…

We’re really excited to be playing at Chiswick Oxjam festival on Saturday 19th October, in support of the charity Oxfam! The whole day will be completely brilliant, so we’d really encourage you to come and check out as many of the HUNDRED bands that are playing as possible! We’re playing the folk stage at the Tabard on Bath Street by Turnham Green tube station at about 10pm, so you can probably squeeze in a good 70 or so bands first if you really try…

Ringlefinch Listens: Volume 2

In advance of our gig at the Harrison on 14th August, and the Good Ship on 23rd August, here’s a present! A new spotify playlist for you, inspired by an August that is frankly behaving a bit like April.

Tsk tsk, Great British Summer, tsk tsk.

It’s another eclectic mix, though perhaps not quite as flamboyantly random as Volume 1. A mix of instrumentals, moody electronica, and upbeat-yet-poignant loveliness from First Aid Kit, Ani Difranco and Jonathan Coulton, and overall with slightly more Yo-Yo Ma than average…

Ringlefinch Listens: Vol 2

01 – Prelude from Bach’s Cello Suite No.1 – Yo-Yo Ma

02 – If I Had A Heart – Fever Ray

03 – Attaboy – Goat Rodeo

04 – Diamonds On My Belly – Hafdis Huld

05 – Tarantella – Antonio Forcione

06 – Marrow – Ani Difranco

07 – In The House (In A Heartbeat) – John Murphy

08 – Wolf – First Aid Kit

09 – El Cargo – Amon Tobin

10 – Baby Got Back – Jonathan Coulton

11 – Pleasure Palaces – Errors

12 – Whodunnit – Reindeer Section
