“A retro delight…” – The Guardian
“…open-hearted pop that has you clutching your knees with glee”
– Drowned In Sound
However, if you’re one of the many who didn’t manage to pick up a ticket for this year’s festival, you can still catch Piney’s live show when she launches her forthcoming album, mR hYDE’S wILD rIDE, on 6th July at The Lexington.
Piney has pulled together a stellar band for her latest album, with members of Gaz Coombes and Emiliana Torrini‘s touring band jumping in on guitar, bass and drums alongside The Smith Brothers & regular collaborator Garo Nahoulakian taking a seat in the producer’s chair. Andy Ramsay of Stereolab makes an appearance on drums, and the bulk of the album was recorded in his South London studio. The rest was whipped-up in Piney’s little Hackney Studio, small and perfectly formed like a musical toy box, chock-full of space echo, marimba, omnichord and pocket piano, which combine to create a euphoric indie-starshine. Think Yoshimi-era Flaming Lips alongside sparkling tableaux of Mercury Rev., the tunefulness of Grandaddy and riff-led counter-melodies like Pixies
mR hYDE’S wILD rIDE is released 29th June 2015 via Damaged Goods.
