LESSONS is a new collection feat. 25 F&F artists to celebrate 10 years of the Front & Follow label and warm our cockles in these troubling times. Check out The Quietus for more info.
“if it had to be classified at all, [LESSONS] could be described as adventurous, rather than focussing on any specific genre. This has been the label’s great strength over the years: doing things that seem to make some kind of sense at the time and largely being proven right – or at the very least interesting – along the way.” – The Quietus
We are delighted to herald the return of The Doomed Bird of Providence, who present their third album Burrowed into the Soft Sky – this time discarding Mark Kluzek’s vocals in favour of two twenty minute instrumentals that continue Kluzek’s obsessive and singular foray into early Australian colonial history.
Pre-order the album on vinyl (and DL) HERE or HERE.
Front and Follow present the second in a new series of split releases bringing together two of our most loved artists. Volume 2 features the mighty talents of Time Attendant and Howlround.
‘The Blow’ project brings two artists together to formulate a collaborative release of their own making. Each artist has a side of audio (approx.. 30-45 mins in length) to do whatever they want with. The two artists are encouraged to work together on the release, but the length and depth of this collaboration is completely up to them and agreed on a release-by-release basis – there are no set parameters, no fancy rules, no memorandum of understanding, no initiation ceremonies.
Available to download NOW for free or pay-what-you-fancy – go HERE!
In the latest in a series of projects bringing together recent releases and a range of new artists, Front & Follow present A City Rewritten, featuring reinterpretations of Shape Worship’s A City Remembrancer from Laura Cannell, Pye Corner Audio, Eva Bowan, Hoofus, Kemper Norton and Lutine.
Toll, the new album from Kemper Norton, is OUT NOW on CD & DL.
Whereas previous Kemper Norton releases Carn and Loor were located in specific rural locations and the city respectively, Toll takes place offshore, exploring themes of vengeance, destroyed communities, the perils of nostalgia and myth and the concept of home.Watch the film for new track The Town above, and stream the whole album over at The Wire.
We are delighted (obviously) to announce a new project on Front & Follow, called The Blow. Over the course of the next year (and perhaps beyond) we’ll be releasing a series of collaborations between some of our favourite artists. We are kicking off with Volume 1 by IX Tab and Hoofus in July, and Volume 2 will follow in the autumn by Time Attendant and Howlround.
