Emmy the Great has almost come to the end of her First Love tour, with a couple of dates in Ireland left to play. Before that, she’ll be making an appearance at Rough Trade East, just off Brick Lane on Monday March 2nd.
FFS met up with Jeremy Warmsley to talk ukeleles, rock operas and okonomiyakis. Intrigued? We certainly were.
“If you get referred to with other artists you really don’t agree with then you feel like their politics might besmirch yours.”
Here at For Folk’s Sake HQ, we are so excited about this release that we’ve had to change our collective trousers. Emmy the Great has been working the London gig circuit with her dark but charming brand of folk for ages and ages, and it’s proper wonderful that she’s finally putting an LP out into the world.
Hot on the heels of Emmy the Great’s new track ‘We Almost Had a Baby’, which we gave a hearty 8/10 here barely a few days ago, comes the news her long awaited debut album is to be released on February 2.
Whilst we wait eagerly for the arrival of Emmy the Great’s new album, ‘First Love’ in early 2009, FFS have been giving this wee single rather a lot of attention.
London anti-folkster Emmy the Great’s latest single has been selected as the Record of the Week on indie-spotting Radio 2 evening show the Radcliffe and Maconie Show.
After a prolonged quiet period the wheels have started to turn in the world of Emma Lee Moss, adding to her three date mini tour she has announced a Rough Trade instore on 13th November.
The aptly monikered Emmy the Great will release the first single from her hotly anticipated debut album in November.
The track ‘We Almost Had a Baby’ will be available on limited edition 7″ vinyl as well as to download.
The release will follow a three-date mini tour, comprised thusly:
Saturday November 8th – Glasgow Twisted Wheel,
Sunday November 9th – Manchester Deaf Institute
Monday November 10th – London ICA
