So why is this windswept indie schmindie rag bag operation giving us a history lesson or blathering on about the TV schedule? “It’s not the bloody Radio Times we’re after,” I hear you cry. Well, the previous episode ‘Pals’ featured Hi Pressure by Loved Ones at a very poignant moment which gave us all goosebumps, literally.
This week Loved Ones Wild Palms features heavily during the course of Episode 3 as does Isobel by Sharks Took The Rest.
We are genuinely humbled that the Music Supervisor Pete Saville at Carbon Logic and the Production Team for this drama have taken to heart The Shipping Forecast and our artists by using so much of our material to accompany such stunning and groundbreaking BBC television drama.
You can hear Wild Palms & Hi Pressure on Loved Ones triumphant debut album ‘The Merry Monarch’.
Which is “Nightmarish yet upbeat, skittering and malevolent. It’s weird but very much worth hearing” according to The Sunday Times.
Mojo specifically referred to Wild Palms as having “a floaty atmospheric beauty to the whole trip”.
‘The Merry Monarch’ is available on vinyl from all good independent physical outlets you’ll find the download and streams available in all the usual places.
Isobel by Sharks Took The Rest is taken from their delicate and beautiful long player ‘Too Late For Logic’
The Quietus says “Isobel could well be the best song Björk never made,” while the album itself “...is a rare thing to find in a climate that seems to have little love left for actual delivery of the goods”.
‘Too Late For Logic’ can be purchased from…
