Cate Le Bon and Tim Presley have gotten together for a second round of DRINKS, and we're all invited to join them! Their new album, Hippo Lite, arrives April 20, (420, in the parlance of our times) and today they've shared the second single from it: "Corner Shops" premiered earlier today on NPR. Come have one on them - Drinks give a good pour - listen to "Corner Shops" now!
And pre-order Hippo Lite today!
Hippo Lite was recorded last summer, in the South of France, with intense heat and no reception for outside distractions, like phone or internet.
"Music in the afternoon after a dip in the river and a cold beer on the square. An album made for each other by one another with no hands, eyes or ears piercing the bubble other than that of dear friend Stephen Black who kept note of it all." - Cate Le Bon
"This is a broken music. a crumble. It's the music of the building we called home for a month. We've never made & recorded music in such a simple living environment. With all the ease, and air we needed. We were in a town 8 miles over from Robert Crumb's hidden residence. We lived in a mysterious place. We had a flock of bats over for dinner many nights. No internet, or a phone to look to. We had a beautiful big stone house, a river, and from time to time a lovely elderly yet young-hearted couple who would visit. It was the opposite of what a typical recording experience usually is for any of us. We tried to capture all of this and put it on record." - Tim Presley
