Fanfarlo: limited editions, Bandstand Busking videos and tour dates

The rather wonderful Fanfarlo have been beavering away to make 500 limited edition copies of their debut album, Reservoir. We love a bit of a DIY ethos her at FFS (which is why our HQ is only half painted…) so were delighted when we saw this picture of the band mid-make.
And they’re a busy bunch. When they’re weren’t gluing and sticking, the band joined forces with the folk at Bandstand Busking to play a few tracks. The videos have just been put online here. And with the Secret Garden Sessions at SXSW, video here.
As if that’s not enough, they’re currently winging their way around the UK on tour (see their tour blog here) and have announced festival dates including the delectable Bloom.
