‘Edge Of Town’ - Francois & The Atlas Mountains cover
We’re starting this week’s Listening Post with a pair of covers, released exclusively for Record Store Day, and summing up a perfect Harley Live crossover. First up, it’s Slow Club – who’ll be appearing at Queens Social Club on 16th December, don’t forget – and their stripped-back, downbeat version of Francois & The Atlas Mountains‘ bubbling, beautiful ‘Edge Of Town’.
Francois & The Atlas Mountains
‘Gold Mountain’ – Slow Club cover
Then, it’s over to Francois & The Atlas Mountains, whose perfectly-pitched slow-core take on Slow Club‘s ‘Gold Mountain’ is just as perfect. Catch them playing their own stuff at The Harley on Saturday 27th October.
Weaving intricate, shape-shifting layers, strings and piano into one hell of a groove, the new material from Manchester’s pop innovators is bound straight for the dancefloor, and it’s taking you with it.
‘The Hunting Song’
Fresh from a live session for Exposed Magazine, Oxo Foxo also has a set of loop pedal wizadry lined up in support of Verity Susman at The Lantern Theatre on Thursday 6th October.
