:: I think this is their best LP to date. Absolutely brilliant!
Dutch Uncles are Duncan Wallis [lead vocals/piano], Andy Proudfoot [drums], Robin Richards [bass] and Peter Broadhead [guitar] from Marple, Cheshire (England). The indie-pop outfit has become a four-piece after former guitarist Daniel “Sped” Spedding announced his departure from the band just two days ago – right the day after Dutch Uncles had released their fourth full-length O Shudder.
O Shudder was released in the UK/Europe on February 23, 2015 via Memphis Industries. North American release followed on February 24. The album is available as download, CD and 12″ vinyl LP. You can buy digitally from iTunes or order your physical copy of O Shudder directly from the band’s website.
The album is streaming in its entirety over at The Guardian. O Shudder was recorded in 2014 with longterm collaborator Brendan Williams over three chunks in three different locations: at a studio in the heart of the Welsh valleys, above the Salford pub ‘The Kings Arms’ and in the natural reverb of Salford’s peel hall for the acoustic instruments.
In n Out is the album’s lead single. The official video id directed by Jody Whittle, check it out above. Dutch Uncles are currently touring the UK with more dates to follow in the end of March and early April.
