BG071 // 10 Feb 2014

Songs For Walter aka Laurie Hulme is back with another slice of folk pop, this time armed with a banjo and a story about his Grandfathers philosophy, communism and constitutional stance about Laurie changing his university course to politics.

The title is from the philosopher: Thomas Hobbe’s ‘Leviathan’ of which Laurie studied during his time at university. Hobbes says that ungoverned man would be constantly at war because of Competition, Diffidence and Glory. This is a comprehensible story about family life and how it can affect your studies, read into it as much as like.

Free download here.

10 Bleeding Gold cover songs by other Bleeding Gold artists!!

Bleeding Gold will be slowing down for the remainder of the year. We are taking a break to reassess the current musical landscape, pay off some serious business debt and return to the fold at a later date with a new business plan that will be better for the artists, the label, and most importantly, the fans.

The download is FREE – but if there is anything you can give, know that the money will go into helping Bleeding Gold return like a phoenix!

Cheers!

Family Hold Back - Artwork

SONGS FOR WALTER   //   FREE DOWNLOAD

Family sayings stick to the memory like glue. No matter how much you try to shake them for fear of turning into your parents, time-worn words of wisdom come flooding back should the right situation present itself. No stranger to this is Songs For Walter – to date each song has emerged as a musical narrative with family life at its heart, and new single Family Hold Back is no exception.


“’Family Hold Back’ was something Mum used to say,” recalls Songs For Walter alter-personality Laurie Hulme. “It was something her parents told her, then she told my brother and I at social occasions to stop us from gorging ourselves in front of others at buffets!”

On the surface it would seem that motherly advice has been taken. Lighter-than-air vocals reminiscent of Mercury Rev’s ethereal tones flow alongside an infectious ukulele melody and four to floor bass drum making it not only recall the stripped-back, traditional sound of Songs For Walter’s self-titled debut EP, but also the epitome of Englishness in its truest sense – amenable, considered, and always polite.

But don’t be fooled, for Songs For Walter has always been a master of trickery presenting everyday scenarios that represent far deeper lying issues – here a seemingly innocent party spread masquerades as a deliberately misleading yet astute commentary on social etiquette, over-indulgence and addiction.

“I’m just hoping i can find some kind of balance,” sings Hulme at the end of the song. Whatever that balance is, there’s no doubting that Family Hold Back is Songs For Walter at its most accomplished sounding yet.

His last singles ‘Tougher Than A Soldier’s Boots’ and ‘Moon / Two Out Of Ten’ gained multiple radio plays by Lauren Laverne, Steve Lamacq and Tom Ravenscroft. Having spent the last 8 months furiously bringing his last single and debut EP to life with numerous live performances around the country and relishing a work ethic just as strong, Songs For Walter’s Laurie Hulme has been a busy man.

Building a momentum to release a free single each month up until Summer 2013, in which a lovely piece of vinyl will be released documenting this amazing story of ‘Songs For Walter’.

SONGS FOR WALTER

‘Tougher Than a Soldier’s Boots’ b/w ‘Where Are You Going?’

Having spent the last 7 months furiously bringing his self-titled debut EP to life with numerous live performances around the country and relishing a work ethic just as strong, Songs For Walter alter-ego Laurie Hulme has been bashing out new songs as though they’re going out of fashion. And here it is, the pick of the latest bunch; a 2 and half minute trip of lo-fi strummery that comes perfectly timed with its autumnal meanderings.

Sutja Gutiérrez

Sutja Gutiérrez and Bleeding Gold Records present “Death Is My Lover, Life Is Your Wife / Weekend Boy”  7inch vinyl edition. “Death Is My Lover, Life Is Your Wife” was written by Sutja Gutiérrez during a short period where Sutja had some cancer tests at the hospital. Don’t worry, he is at no risk! “Weekend Boy” was written by Sutja Gutiérrez during his last disappointment with nightlife. Please, Smile.

BG025 | Mmdelai EP

Posted in Band Update, Music with tags , , , , , , , , on June 27, 2012 by bleedinggold

This new Mmdelai EP might remind you of Portishead, Quantic or U.N.K.L.E. – not the usual suspects of Bleeding Gold inspirations. This one’s got a spacier/dancier feel. You might recognize the vocals – a one Annemarie Duff of BGR newcomers Miniatures. Annemarie has recently made a move from her native New Zealand and hopped shores to Melbourne, Australia, seeking new inspiration from a new city. A new band will be formed and plans for a new EP are in the works. For now you can enjoy a free download of the EP or grab a copy on 1989′s favorite format – the cassette tape. Buy cassette here.
