    The Golden Age Of TV / Engine

    Television / And I Say

      Having only formed a little over year ago, Leeds quintet The Golden Age of TV have already made a huge impression with their razor sharp, whip smart and perfectly crafted indie pop. With only three singles to their name so far, they have quickly been turning heads and already gaining support from Radio 1 with Huw Stephens playing every song so far, 6 Music, Radio X, The 405, DIY and Clash as well as performances at Reading & Leeds and with bands like Fickle Friends, Toothless & Alex Cameron.

      Talking about their new single, the bands singer Bea Fletcher explains: "Television is a tune that's been with us for a very long time. It's our thrashy baby and it's developed alongside us as we've matured, whether that's been by expanding our sonic arsenal with new bits of gear or just honing our writing ability. This has always been one of our favourite tunes to play live because its our chance to just cut loose and go mad. We've closed just about every set we've played with Television and now we feel it's finally at a point to be presented on record."

      Joining The Golden Age of TV will be electropop quartet ENGINE. Surfing in from the outer rim of Burley and noisily settling on the Meanwood Nebula, ENGINE continue to blaze an individual DIY trail in Leeds. The group combines sampled psychedelics with introverted song-writing of a bygone era. With their recent debut album Cucumber Water now and an ever growing live reputation including support slots with Connan Mockasin, Infinite Bisous and C Duncan under their belts, ENGINE have moved forward with the driving, infectious, electronic groove ridden new flawless pop song ‘And I Say’.

      The bands singer James, explains: 'And I Say was conceived, written and recorded in the psychedelic surroundings of Haddon Hall in Burley, Leeds, looking out from the terrace across the great haze of Armley. The boys were inspired to write a track telling of the stresses and strains of maintaining independence, attempting to traverse the tightrope of life whilst not falling back into the same old unwanted relationships. The sounds were to be found in the dustiest cavities of the once opulent surroundings of Haddon Hall, down the sofa, under the bed and in the shower!'

      Both bands will be heading to London alongside CPWM alumni Team Picture on the 27th of July for a show at the Camden Assembly as Come Play With Me host a show with War Child UK as part of a series of shows run in conjunction with exciting new labels in the UK.

      After the success of ‘Come Play’ a collection of 26 tracks, re-workings and remixes from some of West Yorkshires best artists which featured Wild Beasts, Napoleon IIIrd and The Wedding Present at the end of 2017, and singles from the likes of Harkin (Sleater Kinney, Wild Beasts), ZoZo, Magic Mountain (Members of Pulled Apart By Horses, Grammatics & Menace Beach), Fizzy Blood, Team Picture and Her Name is Calla among many others, CPWM will release 6 split 7”s as well as a number of full length releases throughout 2018.

      Various Artists

      Come Play

        "Our first showcase album featuring the best of the artists CPWM works with.

        First time collaborators and long-time friends; American inventor and songwriter Thomas Truax and James Konopinski of Leeds Art-Rock quartet Post War Glamour Girls are proud to debut the first fruits of their very occasional labour.

        They have shared ‘The Best Things’, their debut collaboration which will be released by the Leeds based CPWM Singles Club as a part of ‘Come Play’, the first full length compilation to come from the label and social enterprise project.

        Written over the course of a year, whenever Thomas was on tour in the north with a night off, he would stop by James' house and they'd spend the night chipping away at it. The next morning James would go to work. Thomas would go to the woods. They'd meet in the evening and listen back to what they'd captured prior in the twilight zone. Eventually something clicked. 'The Best Things' is Roy Orbison by way of The Cramps but the cherry on top is Truax's unique way with words, painting a love story, rich with visual metaphors, humour and sorrow.

        Talking about the collaboration, Truax explains: “I think we actually started talking about doing something together right at that first night back in 2011, it just took a while for us to finally get to it, and I had to physically plant myself in that room and refuse to leave until we got something down. James is right about me being stubborn and a perfectionist but I don't really know what I'm doing either...”

        ‘The Best Things’ will be available from the 27th October with the full 26 track compilation available on the 1st December.

        The release of this single also coincides with the release of the full 26-track listing for ‘Come Play’. Joining previously announced Leeds post-punks ZoZo and Truax & Konopinski are up and coming West Yorkshire acts Fizzy Blood, Magic Mountain, Deadwall & Crake as well as some very special tracks including a Wild Beasts remix of Napoleon IIIrd and a track from Leeds legends The Wedding Present re-recorded during sessions for their last album in 2015."

        Maggie8 / Ceiling Demons

        Split 7"

          Described by Clash as 'fast becoming an imprint to watch’ Leeds label Come Play With Me’s latest single featuring tracks by Maggie8 and Ceiling Demons looks set to continue the precedent it has set of highlighting the awesome diversity of great music coming out of the area following the likes of Cinerama (The Wedding Present), Harkin (Sleater Kinney, Sky Larkin), Fizzy Blood, OFFICERS, ZoZo & Esper Scout.

          Ceiling Demons are an alternative hip hop group from Yorkshire, they explain their goal simply as ‘Seeking to capture the rawness of human emotion in rhythms and rhymes.’ Currently one album and an EP deep into their career, the band have earned praise from legendary Hip Hop group ‘Arrested Development’, BBC 6Music’s Tom Robinson, Scroobius Pip and BBC Introducing as well as shows supporting the likes of Astronautalis, Sleaford Mods & De La Soul. Comprised of identical twin brothers Psy Ceiling and Dan Demon, the always masked Ceiling Demons are dark, experimental and raw, this is perfectly summed up in their contribution to CPWM, ‘Lost The Way’

          Discussing the song, the band explain: “There are a few themes in Lost the Way, nature is one. We live in the Yorkshire Dales so naturally the landscape influences our music. Feelings of loneliness and directionless sometimes come from it, other times it's a kind of respect for the vastness and beauty of those rolling hills. As ever, though, it's a song to be interpreted however you like. It's one of our more positive songs; a little bit of light against the darkness that usually permeates our music, but it's nice to have a track that calls for a bit of solidarity and progression.”

          Joining Ceiling Demons on the 7” split is Leeds’ Maggie8, comprised of Nivedita Pisharoty, Mark Wright, Peter Mottram & Matt Flint, Maggie8 play a unique brand of Indie-pop mixed with Hindi Raags and elements of Bollywood music and samples. ‘Connected’ rose from the ashes of a previous Maggie8 Lineup as explained by the band:

          “The song featured on this 7 inch was written after the break up of another Maggie8 lineup. It can be a sad time but also it's a natural part of being in a band. You make connections that last forever but not always in the same vicinity. It's the burning of the heather to promote fresh shoots.

          The slim-line line up was looping a riff when Niv suddenly appeared at the bottom of the stairs singing the very vocal line you hear today on this record. The song is a break up piece but it's not without hope and love when "deconstruction of the existing" creates a fresh chapter.”
