Andy Price – Clothing & Failure

AndyPrice4.5Artist: Andy Price
Title: Clothing & Failure
Cat: FFP-R04.5
Run time: 41:50

The story behind this release is this. Today is Friday 8 May – Monday 4 May was Bank Holiday Monday and Andy Price, who put out the first ever FFP-R release, is bored. So he writes and records an entire album (using a few unrecorded Dig for Fire tracks he’s working on). On Wednesday 6 May he sends it to me, I listen to it on Thursday 7 May, and then deliver it to you today, Friday 8 May.

By his own admission, it’s hit and miss, but the joy of FFP-R is that it is raw and ready. Some tracks written this week – including the fantastic title track – rate amongst the best songs Andy has ever written, without this release, it’d take you another few months at least before you heard it – if ever. It takes on all the anti-folk values, love, loss, food prep, and runs with them. It’s a remarkable release, and we’re continuing to argue over which tracks we think are hit, and which ones are miss!

1. Imaginary Song 7. If Only
2. Maybe in Another Life 8. Shotgun
3. That’s That 9. What a Day
4. That’s Life 10. When Every Passing Moment Makes You Afraid
5. I Walked into a Room 11. Clothing and Failure
6. Negative Song


Other formats are currently unavailable with this release. You can still donate to us though.
