    No Ghost

    After headline runs and bouts touring with critical darlings like Bowerbirds, Phosphorescent and Akron/Family, in the summer of 2009 Canadian quintet the Acorn retreated from two years on the road to an isolated cottage in northern Quebec to begin work on their third full-length album, No Ghost. Songs took shape at all hours, crafted from hazy late-night improvisations, early morning melodies pulled from the thinning threads of sleep. Modernity clashed with the bucolic via exploratory percussion, feedback, acoustic textures and the natural surrounding sounds. The band then traded trees for telephone poles to finish recording in a sweltering heat wave in Montreal. There, the breezy ease of rural surrounds was buried under sweat-caked skin and cracked asphalt, birdsong drowned out by thick air and engine hum. No Ghost is a recording swaddled in dichotomy: togetherness and isolation, acoustic and electric, destruction and restoration.

    Acorn Man

    Billy Childish is an international cult figure, painter, poet and novelist. He has released over 120 independent albums and influenced a vast range of musicians . His latest band is CTMF. Billy's description of their sound holds true - "the sound of yesterday, tomorrow" Acorn Man is arguably one of Childish most accessible LPs, showcasing Childish's love of punk rock and beat. Traces of dirge and the The Fall mingle effortlessly with unbounded pop on tracks such as 'It's So Hard to be Happy.' Childish's 35 year quest for the 'ever essential bones of pop' bears fruit and remains true to to his opening gambit back in 1977.
