Just 10 days now until the release of Earthling Brains' debut album I’ll Leave A Light On For You, on the 10th June 2013.
Earthling Brains is the moniker of multi-instrumentalist and comic strip artist Joe Besford. The album was self-recorded in Joe’s North London flat and mastered by Woodie Taylor at Milou Studios (Comet Gain, Veronica Falls).
The album is available with a companion piece comic entitled The Long Night Is Over.
I’ll Leave A Light On For You/The Long Night Is Over is Forward Defensive’s first attempt at physically packaging a music release as something other than a CD, cassette or vinyl record, coming as it does in comic form with a download code.
Three tracks are available to stream and a video accompanies You’ve Got Nothing Left To Get Off Your Chest. This video animates a segment of the comic's story.
You can pre-order the album now via Bandcamp.
Joe Besford's former band were been described as “…pure indie sublimity” (10Tribes). His long time influences include British Sea Power, Bruce Springsteen and Bill Watterson.
