Listen again: Turin Brakes special on BFBS Radio

Turin Brakes join Amy Casey on BFBS Radio for an hour’s worth of interview and session and it’s excellent. The guys talk in detail about their career – especially Optimist and Ether Song era, the music they listened to growing up, their manager, 9/11 and their cancelled US tour and much much more. I was actually disappointed when they skipped from Ether Song to Lost Property in the interview, because I wanted to hear about the rest of it in detail as well!

Also, the guys play a lovely acoustic session that sounds really old-school for some reason. It includes tunes like Mind Over Money, Painkiller, Keep Me Around and Jump Start. It’s good people.

Go to this page and click on the player with “Weekend Breakfast Saturday – Part 4” below it. Flash player is required.

Turin Brakes on ITV weekend tomorrow (+ Press Round-Up)

Turin Brakes will perform on ITV weekend tomorrow morning. The chat show is hosted by Aled Jones and also features actor Warwick Davis and TV presenter Adam Henson. Turin Brakes will perform live in the studio, presumably new single Jump Start. This is Turin Brakes second foray in weekend daytime television land this year, having performed on Sunday Brunch earlier.

If you cannot wait till tomorrow morning, check out Turin Brakes on Live With Turin Brakes for Vintage TV. TB perform 96, Keep Me Around, Jump Start in part 1, the second part has Save You, Black Rabbit and Underdog (Save Me). Nice!

Also keep an eye on Sky Arts if that is in your fancy tv subscription thing. Because they’re broadcasting highlights of the Isle of Wight festival on Saturday and Sunday night from 10 PM. Turin Brakes should be featured. Speaking of which, here’s an interview and video from the Isle of Wight, courtesy of Absolute Radio:

Also, Turin Brakes joke about clashing with Adele at Glastonbury here. Guess who they think people should come see? Hint: it is not Adele.

Finally, for this round-up. Here’s a live session of Jump Start and Painkiller for BBC London, about two hours and eight minutes in.

Jump Start playlisted on BBC Radio 2

The third single from Lost PropertyJump Start, has been playlisted on BBC Radio 2 on the C-list. This means it will be played frequently during the next week. Hurrah! The single itself is destined for a release on 8 July (whatever a release means these days), which means we’ll see the appear video sometime in the next two weeks, possibly on that very date.

Jump Start is the third song from Lost Property to get playlisted on BBC Radio 2. As previously reported, the single version features some extra guitar parts in the verses, which make it sound even nicer than it does on the album.

Turin Brakes make it 3 in a row with the new single 'Jump Start', new to the BBC Radio2 playlist this week. 😀

Turin Brakes add Eindhoven show to October EU dates

Turin Brakes have added a show at the Effenaar in Eindhoven on 15 October. This date follows Homegrown Festival show in Bury on 13 October, the Amsterdam show on the 14th and precedes the first Paris show in over ten years on the 16th of October.

The show is presented by the very well-respected Naked Song festival (which is held later this month), where well-known songwriters come to play often intimate solo performances. This year’s line-up features Damien Jurado, Sun Kil Moon and Max Jury, the songwriter on the rise who has worked with Turin Brakes on yet-to-be-released material.

Anyway, tickets (15 euros + things) and details (starts at 20:00 hours) here. Turin Brakes last played the Effenaar in 2010. That was awesome. This should be too!

New song by Gonzalla recorded by Turin Brakes

Also, listen to this track by an American artist called Gonzalla, his latest single We Still Run’ was recorded by Turin Brakes according to his tweet:

He says at Huffington Post:

“I wrote ‘We Still Run’ about a year ago in England on my $4 Farfisa organ in my previous apartment. It was quite a simple song really, It came together quite naturally because I wrote it with such a distinct message to tell. To me the lyrics are some of the most meaningful I’ve ever written. One of my good friends was going through a hard time and was in and out of the hospital quite a lot which conflicted her happiness as you can imagine. I wanted to help her through it and show her it’s not over till It’s over in a way. It’s one I’m very proud of and I hope it can help other people through hard times as well. It was great fun recording it as well, I was lucky enough to record it with Turin Brakes who are fantastic. It’s been one of my best songwriting & recording experiences so far.”

Nice words eh? Nice words…

This is the song, have a listen then!

Isle Of Wight Festival coverage from 8PM

If you’re not watching the England game tonight from 8PM, tune into Absolute Radio for coverage from Turin Brakes live from the main stage of Isle of Wight Festival 2016. Their set this afternoon was apparently a great success (although slightly earlier than previously announced due to a David Bowie tribute). I’ll try to record it, but no guarantees (Internet is pretty on/off for me today ;)).
