The False Poets set to release New Single and Album

It's ten years this summer of 2022 since The False Poets first started with their 60s flavoured, garagey sounds. The band took something of a hiatus after a couple of years, but since teaming up with Nice Mind Records in 2019, the band have released a single, a split LP with label mates The Support Band and two LPs of their own original sounds.

As a sort of retrospective and an attempt to gather stock as the next chapter commences, Friday 2nd September sees the release of Poetaster: A Miscellany, a compilation album which features debut single Tell Me When, the eponymous EP and other odds and ends the band have recorded more recently.

The album also features, and is foreshadowed by, an almost gothic post-punk single Shadows of Fear. A further development from the sounds the band created on sophomore effort Strange Season, Shadows of Fear will be available to stream from all the usual places on Friday August 5th, but it is only at that the single comes with a digital b-side excavated from the vaults of the band's beginnings.

Check out the artwork here and, if you're in the North East of England catch the band that very same day Friday August 5th at The Three Tuns, Sheriff Hill, Gateshead where the band will be supported by label mate Kevin Phillipson.

New Release from Nice Mind Records - NICE023 Kevin Phillipson - Working With The Weather Live at the Garden Farm

Nice Mind Records are proud to announce the release of Working With The Weather Live at the Garden Farm by Kevin Phillipson.

Kevin, hailing from County Durham, has been honing his craft of acoustic folk music in his own unique style for over forty years and is, in our nice minds, a hidden gem of the North East music scene.

Compiled of eight original songs, Working With The Weather Live at the Garden Farm, serves as a fine introduction to his art whilst documenting his first live appearance in over ten years. 

Kevin’s wisdom and poetry seep from the lyrics he delivers with heart-felt sensitivity complimented by finger picked chords full of hooks that spring up from his love of folk, blues and rock and roll.

Songs such as This Heart of Mine (as covered by the late, great Alan Hull) and Take Me to the Dance portray the timelessness of his music. New songs The Great Song of Sorrow (Song for Greta) and Look Where You Will linger in the mind and we hope to be able to bring you more new music from this extraordinary singer-songwriter in the not too distant future.

Working With The Weather Live at the Garden Farm by Kevin Phillipson will be available for streaming and download from from Friday 4th March 2022.

This is Kevin Phillipson's second release on Nice Mind Records. His studio album The Fool and the Moon is available to purchase now.
