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

Our next show is at The Harrison in King's Cross ( for Folkroom Records ( on 14th August. We totally heart the guys at Folkroom – and indeed every band and artist they have on their roster – and are thrilled to be playing for them again at their new residency. The Harrison is pretty much the heart of the London folk scene, so it's a great move!
