…breathtaking.” – The 405


For fans of… Elliott Smith, Grizzly Bear, Sufjan Stevens, Andrew Bird
Brighton based artist The Luchtime Sardine Club aka Oliver Newton (Yndi Halda / Bermuda Ern / St. Coltrane) recently released his lo-fi, psych-folk debut album Icecapades, via Sonic Anhedonic Recording Co.

The video for album track ‘Rumours’ went up exclusively on The 405 but is now available to watch via the label’s YouTube channel!

Gold Flake Paint hosted an exclusive stream of the album on their website but you can also buy and stream Icecapades from The Lunchtime Sardine Club’s Bandcamp page.


If you’d like a little taster though, there are two free tracks available to download now from the ABoF Soundcloud page – ‘Rumours‘ and ‘I’m… Jesuschristmaam‘.

The album is a collection of short stories, such as the death of a boxer, the sleepy sickness epidemic of the 1920s, the mysterious disappearance of three lighthouse keepers, an old woman’s embalming and murderous distortion.

The Lunchtime Sardine Club recently grabbed the attention of Amazing Radio with the first single ‘Rumours’ and also featured on a Big Scary Monsters best of… compilation earlier this year. With the sound branded as “a happier Elliott Smith circa 1998″ by Brighton Noise, The Lunchtime Sardine Club’s Icecapades is the perfect concoction of Elliott Smith’s storytelling style and Grizzly Bear‘s lo-fi folk.

The Lunchtime Sardine Club‘s Icecapades is out now via Sonic Anhedonic Recording Co.
