Australian singer/songwriter and recent Transgressive Records signee Julia Jacklin has announced a list of UK headline dates for early next year in support of her debut album ‘Don’t Let the Kids Win’. The LP was released back in October, and its title track is due to be released as a single on the 12th of December. Jacklin’s last-minute performance of ‘Don’t Let the Kids Win’ at the British Music Embassy on the Saturday night of SXSW 2016 tugged at my heart and brought tears to my eyes. Have a handkerchief ready when you watch her new video for the track, which is featured below the tour date listing.

Jacklin is currently on tour in the UK opening for Chicago-based duo Whitney, who we also caught at SXSW 2016. A full listing of Jacklin’s upcoming shows, which include dates in Europe and Australia, can be found on her official Facebook.  TGTF’s previous coverage of Julia Jacklin is collected here.

Stornoway / February and March 2017 UK Tour

 
By on Thursday, 27th October 2016 at 9:00 am
 

A bird is three things:
Feathers, flight and song,
And feathers are the least of these.
– Marjorie Allen Seiffert, “The Shining Bird”

On Tuesday, Oxford folk-pop quartet Stornoway made this surprise announcement that they will disband early next year, so that band members Brian Briggs, Jon Ouin, and Rob and Oli Steadman might pursue other individual interests. The news is quite sad for us here at TGTF, where Stornoway have been long-time favourites, but the announcement comes with a happy twist for the band’s UK fans, in the form of a Farewell Tour scheduled for next February and March.

Support for the following live dates will be played by Canadian indie rock band Brasstronaut, and tickets will be available beginning Friday the 28th of October at 10 AM. Just below the tour date listing, you’ll find Stornoway’s final promo video, a rare track from their ‘Bonxie’ recording sessions titled ‘Night Drive’.

TGTF’s extensive archive of coverage on Stornoway is collected here.
