Old Rip - The August List
LCM exclusive video premiere
To celebrate the release today of 'Ramshackle Tabernacle' the great new album from Oxford based husband and wife duo Kerraleigh and Martin Child, better known as The August List, we have an exclusive first look at their new video and our LCM #TrackOfTheDay 'Old Rip'.
Kerraleigh and Martin have their London album launch at The Harrison at Kings X on the 12th May. Followed by a gig on the 13th at The Cellars in Oxford.
The August List are a boy-girl two-piece who play backwards country-porch folk with a startling rock ‘n’ roll attitude. Acoustic guitars, kick drums, harmonicas, found instruments and their voices are deployed with verve and passion on songs concerning the frailty of human existence, the awesomeness of nature and other fun things. Hailing from Dorset and now residing in a small barn perched on a hill in Oxfordshire
'Ramshackle Tabernacle' was recorded and produced by Richard Neuberg (Viarosa) and the band at Strawhouse Studios in Oxford.
The album is a veritable sonic stew with a cast of characters from both fiction and the real world. Rip Van Winkle, Connie Converse and James ‘Mad’ Lucas, address the themes of absenteeism and hermits (‘Old Rip’, ‘Connie Converse’) and they sit alongside more personal songs (‘I Am The Teeth’, ‘Wilderness’, ‘Half Light’).
