passing the gun from father to feckless son

We're releasing undertheigloo's album "Circlesend" soon and here's the blurb about it:

undertheigloo are a four piece from Oxford. Their music has taken in many genres to produce something truly special. Having nurtured a dynamic writing enviroment which affords them the ability to experiment, as well as posessing the confidence to challenge conventional song writing, they consistently produce material of breathtaking beauty that refuses to be pigeonholed but is genuinely accessible. As on record their live show mixes intricate drums, hypnotic bass, soaring guitars and effortless vocals to mesmerising effect. They naturally integrate keyboards and laptop-based sampling to open up near limitless sonic possibilities.

Their fundamental commitment to writing and performing has won them much praise, and gives them strong foundations upon which to grow into the national arena and beyond.

The band has spent the last few months independently recording its debut album with Jef Clayton. All instruments were recorded during a fortnight in an isolated lake district cottage and vocals have been recorded subsequently in their own studio.

undertheigloo’s debut album “Circlesend” is released on Freedom Road Records on November the 28th. It's available to pre-order now from

The album is streaming on the band website

I've decided that rather than using inane titles for posts that I should just use lyrics I like. Most of them will have nothing at all to do with the post. Today's is from 'Leaders Of The Free World' by Elbow. undertheigloo photo copyright Brightside Photography 2005.

hi Russ, it's Dan. I thought I liked the dotty look of a blog too, until I tried to update it with a hangover too often.

Come and read the random things I have to say. Only occasionally to do with music.

Glad to see another blogger. Hope you nearly have your towns and cities compilation ready.
