• yonokiero Blue Apples (CD, £8.95)

    label: Front and Follow

    Chris Baldwin and Tom Coogan were in Hirameka Hi-Fi together. When that band broke up they continued to write songs, but left the distortion pedals off, focusing instead on vocals, melody and songwriting. The resulting sound ranges from pretty folk to smoky indie and is shot through with the artisan simplicity of their new focus. Blue Apples was recorded on a laptop at the end of August 2008 in Tom's flat, competing with the sound from a 2-year luxury apartment construction project and a steam conversion plant opposite his building, across the canal. They both currently live in Nottingham. Released in hand-crafted, limited edition packaging.
