Here is the first in our brand new podcast series, this month curated by Ben Cottrell. Here he chats with fellow Efpi co-founder Sam Andreae about Silence Blossoms, a great band that Sam formed in Sweden two years ago and who are preparing to play their first ever UK gigs next month to mark the release of a collection of live recordings from around Sweden (released November 5th on Efpi Records, in collaboration with the Ljup label in Sweden).
In the podcast you’ll hear music that you won’t be able to hear online anywhere else, as the tracks played will only be available on old-school audio cassette… Sam also talks about the formation of the band and the compositional process, previews Silence Blossoms’ upcoming UK gigs (details below) as well as giving an idea of what to expect from future podcast editions – this whole thing was his idea!
If you like what you hear, you can catch Silence Blossoms and purchase the live collection in concert (alongside the awesome Alice Zawadzki for both dates) in the UK in November:
18th November – The Forge, Camden (London Jazz Festival) more info/tickets here
