love it, had no idea they were making a new record

It was a cool moment seeing on the back of a Slum of Legs record that they'd recorded it at Insides studio

Not that they sound anything like them of course

coygbiv (NickB), Friday, 1 July 2016 12:41 (three years ago) link

Ah, good. I thought Sweet Trip was a misstep, and this more a progression from Euphoria.

There are so many gems on this album, I can't even choose one. I used to think Skykicking was my favorite until Carly Simon kept sneaking into my dreams. It has many interesting changes, but it's mostly the beginning of the outro in the middle of the song (01:52), with those two fading notes that make it lovely. It reminds me a little of St. Etienne. What a record.

big love for relentless!

I recently sprung for the 12" for Clear Skin. It's one of my favorite Steve Reich rip-offs. Absolutely incredible.

brotherlovesdub, Monday, 6 November 2017 20:47 (two years ago) link

I like the 12, but the CD is better.

Chewshabadoo, Monday, 6 November 2017 23:02 (two years ago) link

Yeah, I agree with you there. I've had the CD for a while, but there are different tracks on the 12", so I needed that too.

amazing record

Earwig's complete(?) discography is now on bandcamp btw

Jeff W, Sunday, 3 March 2019 12:48 (eleven months ago) link

still see Kirsty and Julian at gigs in Brighton but 2shy 2say hi

kolarov spring (NickB), Sunday, 3 March 2019 13:44 (eleven months ago) link

You should! They're lovely. I've done some photo sessions with them over the last few years - not sure if it'll ever be used but it was fun anyway. There has been new music in the works for a while.

"Newly remastered and recut from the original tapes, Euphoria will be available to buy on #RSD19 in the US"

Only in the US? (glum emoji)

Daniel Giraffe, Tuesday, 5 March 2019 13:04 (eleven months ago) link

xp they played a one-off gig recently too - in paris supporting seefeel iirc

kolarov spring (NickB), Tuesday, 5 March 2019 13:14 (eleven months ago) link

Used to love seeing Earwig live. Then saw them do the whole of Clear Skin at The Vox in Brixton which I thought was excellent although not such a great experience for them apparently, as documented in the big Quietus piece probably linked above.

Julian Tardo mastered the recent Sonny Sharrock 'Ask The Ages' reissue for vinyl which by all acounts sounds ace, to make a thread connection. (I know the label guy is also Brighton based as a mutual friend introduced us briefly last year.)

Yeah, I'm sure they wouldn't mind! Julian recorded our album and recorded and mixed the singles, he's really really nice.

emil.y, Tuesday, 5 March 2019 16:38 (eleven months ago) link

yeah i did spot his name on the back of your records :)

kolarov spring (NickB), Tuesday, 5 March 2019 16:41 (eleven months ago) link

he did the Fear Of Men stuff yesteryear that I really loved

Did anyone get the remaster yet?

For anybody in the UK, rest of Europe or anywhere else, we’ll have a bunch to sell via bandcamp when RSD has been put to bed x

Chewshabadoo, Monday, 15 April 2019 05:23 (ten months ago) link

i did ask about that in resident yesterday and got totally blank-faced

Br. Des Shadows (NickB), Monday, 15 April 2019 06:14 (ten months ago) link

No Insider knowledge in that place.

Chewshabadoo, Monday, 15 April 2019 06:34 (ten months ago) link

omg this has gotta be the first rsd thing i've cared about

american bradass (BradNelson), Monday, 15 April 2019 12:28 (ten months ago) link

We got a bunch of those in where I work and we didn't sell a single one on the day. It was hard to watch.

kitchen person, Monday, 15 April 2019 13:47 (ten months ago) link

oooh, I bet I can still head over to one of our local record shops this week and snag one of those

the girl from spirea x (f. hazel), Monday, 15 April 2019 13:55 (ten months ago) link

None of my local record stores (and there's a bunch here) stocked it. And to think I actually showed up early to make sure I snagged a copy of this hot product.

henry s, Monday, 15 April 2019 14:25 (ten months ago) link

Up for sale at Norman Records now.

Internet Alan, Monday, 15 April 2019 17:30 (ten months ago) link

this record is perfect and i hate to have to choose but it has to be "skin divers".

6 Skin Divers (3:30) 0

Saw on twitter that they've got Brighton and London dates coming up, not sure if any others in the UK...

I really want to go to this but I'm not gonna be able to persuade anyone to come with me from Glasgow to London for it

boxedjoy, Tuesday, 13 August 2019 15:51 (six months ago) link

V tempted to go see them in London on 9th September too but flying all the way to London for it (by myself as no one I know digs them) is a bit mental

The World According To.... (Michael B), Tuesday, 13 August 2019 19:05 (six months ago) link

four weeks pass...

Euphoria @ Social last night was completely great; really heavy sound in parts (Skin Divers was colossal), Kirsty on excellent form and clearly delighted to be there.

Smattering of tracks from (alleged) forthcoming album Soft Bonds that they apparently started recording "in 2012" - first of these was really dense and great. Expect album around 2030 maybe.

Sweet Tip seems to have been ruthlessly purged from the Insides canon by band and audience alike, oh well

technopolis, Thursday, 12 September 2019 06:27 (five months ago) link

It was pretty great, eh? Glorious guitar arpeggios.

Liked the motorik blast of that long middle track in support band Now's set too.

Always wondered what had happened to the photos I took in a couple of sessions 2015-16; turns out one is on their artist page on Spotify.
