Sam Richards Hear “Caught By The Heart”, a new song by Tim Finn and Phil Manzanera

45 years after they first worked together on Split Enz’s Second Thoughts album, Tim Finn has reunited with Roxy Music’s Phil Manzanera for a series of EPs created 12,000 miles apart during lockdown.

The first EP, Caught By The Heart, will be released on June 18. Hear its title track, featuring Tim’s daughter Elliot Finn on backing vocals, below:

Says Phil Manzanera: “It’s a joy and honour working with Tim, one of the finest singer-songwriters of his generation. I couldn’t believe how prolific he is, how he makes songwriting seem so natural and instinctive. I’d send the music, and then within days, these beautifully sung songs would pop up… it was like Christmas every day! And we’re still writing.”

Adds Tim Finn: “The tracks that Phil was sending were instantly evocative and in a time of global pandemic represented a way of connecting emotionally with the countries first affected. Spain, Italy, France and the UK were all places I had travelled in, lived in and played concerts in. But now they were suffering and closed off. I started singing in Spanish and themes came freely. Sometimes I would write lyrics in English, translate them to Spanish, making changes for scan or rhyme which took me in new and unexpected directions.

“Phil’s music is always highly atmospheric and suggestive. He has a way of playing that is just the right side of elegant. My wife and children had also been playing Roxy Music in the car so Phil was present and vivid for me when I started writing these songs with him. A delightful and meaningful exchange between two old friends on opposite sides of the world.”

Among the musicians featured on the Caught By The Heart EP are Brazilian João Mello (sax), Cuban Frank Portuondo (bass) and British-Bahraini flugelhorn player Yazz Ahmed.

Sam Richards Laura Marling and Tunng’s Mike Lindsay announce new Lump album

Lump – AKA Laura Marling and Mike Lindsay of Tunng – have announced that their second album Animal will be released on July 30 via Chrysalis/Partisan Records.

Watch a video for the title track below:

Animal was recorded at Lindsay’s home studio in Margate, Kent. As with the first album, Marling would arrive in the studio without having heard any of Lindsay’s music. “There’s a little bit of a theme of hedonism on the album, of desires running wild,” she says. “And also it fed into the idea we had from the start of thinking of Lump as a kind of representation of instincts, and the world turned upside down.”

“We created Lump as a sort of persona and an idea and a creature,” adds Lindsay. “Through Lump we find our inner animal, and through that animal we travel into a parallel universe.”

Check out Lump’s UK tourdates below. The pre-sale starts at 10am on May 5 here, and tickets go on general sale from May 7.

31st August – Gorilla, Manchester
2nd September – Brudenell Social Club, Leeds
3rd September – Trinity, Bristol
5th September – Patterns, Brighton
6th September – Scala, London

CAS Album of the Month Club: Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds ‘Murder Ballads’

Join us on Sunday May 23rd for our Album of the Month Club featuring Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Murder Ballads. For those that haven’t joined us, it is like a book club get-together on Zoom but for….albums!

In some ways, Murder Ballads is the record Nick Cave was waiting to make his entire career. Death and violence have always haunted his music, even when he wasn’t explicitly singing about the subject. On Murder Ballads, he sings about nothing but death in the most gruesome, shocking fashion. Divided between originals and covers, the record is awash in both morbid humor and sobering horror, as the Bad Seeds provide an appropriate backdrop for the carnage, alternating between blues, country, and lounge-jazz.

If you would like to join us subscribe as a Member for £10 (and you can also join us for the Pub Quiz on the 7th) here.

On Sunday morning, Colleen will send all participants a ‘Musical Lead-Up Playlist’ that sets the musical context for the album and will include influences and contemporaries. This is to be listened to in your own time before the meeting takes place.

Doors open at 7:45 and after we all greet one another, Colleen tells the story behind the album. We then listen to the album in real time on whichever device or format that is available to you (vinyl, CD, streaming).

Once the album finishes, we unmute ourselves and have a discussion about the album and our listening experience. This is a great way to connect with people, especially for those of us who are in Lockdown and I truly hope you can join us. If you are a subscribed Supporter or Punter, you can always upgrade your subscription to Member status and you will not be charged twice. And if you are new to Classic Album Sundays and are considering signing up, do so this week as then you can come along to our Pub Quiz on Friday May 7th.

Our events really resonate with people and one of our newest members sent this testimonial after her first Album Club last month:

“I wanted to thank you for the warm welcome and the knowledge there are friendly like minded people across the world out there and you brought us all together through a shared love of music. That is awesome. I have been mostly alone through the pandemic (am single, live alone – and yes do have the requisite cats to complete the stereotype!😂) My 25 + year career has been in events, currently in the West End of London so in my “normal” life I would be out at least 3/4 times a week. That has all obviously completely stopped for me and it has been a somewhat of a struggle mentally, music has kept me sane and Sunday’s event really helped my sanity. I truly hope to meet you in real life at some point to say thank you in person and look forward to engaging in more events.” – Angela

Casey Deal Episode 208: girl in red


Marie Ulven is a singer, songwriter, and producer from Norway, who makes music under the name girl in red. She just released her debut album in April 2021, but she already has a big fanbase and she’s gotten a lot of critical acclaim from two EPs and singles that she’s released online, including a couple of songs that went gold. The New York Times included her work in their best songs of the year in both 2018 and 2019. Last year she was nominated for Best Newcomer at the Norwegian Grammys, and this year she won International Success of the Year. “Do you listen to girl in red?” has also become code on TikTok, a kind of shibboleth, to ask if someone’s a lesbian. In this episode, Marie breaks down the song “Serotonin,” a song that started as a video she posted to her own TikTok in the early days of lockdown in 2020. You’ll hear the original version she recorded on her own, before collaborating with Norwegian Grammy-winning producer Matias Téllez, and later, with Grammy-winning artist and producer Finneas O’Connell, in order to finish the song.

You can buy or stream “Serotonin” here.
