Folks, the latest van is here digging the foundations for the new album by Free School, Birmingham’s Maximalist cosmic voyagers.
The lead single is ‘Hudson’s Whistle’, a feel-good, hook-laden instrumental romp with melodies aplenty to tug on your heartstrings. The record is backed with a dark melancholic remix by Maps (Mute Records) of contemporary disco track ‘French Cousins’.
Ethnic Prog Techno vitamins all on one seven inch package. Try to get this out of your head. Free School is finally ready to release their most fully realized audio jewel yet.
Free School released their critically acclaimed LP ‘Tender Administration’ in 2011. This followed two 12” EP releases, featuring remixes from Richard Norris (Beyond The Wizard's Sleeve / The Time & Space Machine) and Mark E (Ghostly International) and a string of remixes for the likes of Roots Manuva, Phil Oakey and Maps (Mute). Their cosmic delights have won the support of Lauren Laverne, Gilles Peterson & Jacques Renault. The duo's live show has seen them support Editors, Andrew Weatherall, Walls, Ulrich Schnauss and Fujiya & Miyagi.
"It's not outtake of something else, but a made to measure hit single (300 copies made, which might make it a bit more difficult)" [Vital Weekly]
