Jade Hopcroft to release debut single “Saint” on LFC Records on 19 November

What was that saying about London buses? You wait for ages and then two come along at once? Something like that. Well, we can apply this to LFC Records releases. We’ve been locked away for a little while since the summer, but rather than fading slowly into obscurity, we’ve been preparing two amazing singles for you – first, The Divers one, which we announced a week or two back, and now we’re delighted to tell you that we’ll also be putting out Jade Hopcroft‘s wonderful debut single, “Saint”, on Monday 19 November.

We first came across Jade and her head-turning, haunting folk pop back in May at The Great Escape Festival down in Brighton, and so good was that show we decided we had to get involved to ensure that as many people as possible around the world hear her remarkable voice and nifty way around a pop song. Since then, she’s been cutting her teeth on the live scene with the likes of Matt Corby, Luke Sital-Singh and Rachel Sermanni, and has also found time to record these rather spine-tingling couple of tracks that make up the single. If you haven’t yet heard her, hit play below and think along the lines of Stevie Nicks, First Aid Kit and Laura Marling.

To celebrate the release, Jade will be playing a series of shows in London in the next few weeks – the famous Ronnie Scott’s (Tue 20 November), AAA on High Street Kensington (Thu 29 November) and Metropolis Studios in Chiswick (Tue 4 December). The single “Saint” will be available from all good digital retailers from 19 November, and will be backed with the previously unrecorded “Habit”, which has quickly become a mainstay in Jade’s live sets.

LFC007: A Little Better by The Divers (out 26 November)

We’re delighted to announce that the next release on Laissez Faire Club Records will be The Divers‘ amazing track “A Little Better”, which will be available from all good digital outlets (iTunes / Spotify included) from Monday 26 November.

We first came across a live studio video of the track from the London based quartet back in January, and it’s probably no exaggeration to say we’ve listened to it almost every day since (and whooped loudly when they’ve dropped it in their live shows).

To our ears, it’s as good as US indie referencing rock-pop gets, and as such we decided we had to get this out there for the world at large to hear. If you appreciate the work of people like Band Of Horses, Wilco, Pearl Jam, The Shins, Elliott Smith, Death Cab For Cutie, et al, we’re of the opinion The Divers will be your new favourite band before too long. Just under three minutes, perhaps, if you hit play on the single below. Go on – treat your ears.

As with all these singles we put out, there will of course be a launch party to celebrate. On this occasion, we can reveal that The Divers will be taking to the stage at The Enterprise in Camden on Tuesday 27 November, a day after the release hits the proverbial shelves, which should give you ample time to learn the words in advance. Supports are TBC at the time of writing – so keep checking back to find out what we have in store (and also for ticketing details).

London gigs diary: 8 October – 14 October


Savages play 2 nights at Electrowerkz this week. Photo by Xander Lloyd.

Another busy week for shows in London town: Monday night sees Australia’s Angus Stone kick off a 2-night residency at The Lexington, with the brilliant Luke Sital-Singh in support. Brighton’s Cave Painting also appear at The Old Queens Head, and the piping hot Angel Haze plays a sold out show at Hoxton Bar Kitchen. Kyla La Grange plays her biggest headline gig to date on Tuesday night, in support of recent debut album Ashes – those heading there might want to take note of the aftershow party at nearby Surya. Savages play two nights at Electrowerkz, on Wednesday and Thursday, off the back of their recent Jools Holland appearance and continued critical acclaim. Those in proximity to West London could do worse than to go and check out WALL. on Thursday evening at Notting Hill Arts Club for the inaugural Black Cab Sessions night there. The weekend, for once, has notable gigs happening – Manchester’s Shinies play Birthdays on Saturday evening, and Red Kite play a free entry show at Proud on Sunday.

Sydney’s Deep Sea Arcade play 2 shows in London this week, including Windmill on Friday.

Three big gigs on Tuesday night should get the week off to a flying start: Israel Cannan headlines The Enterprise in celebration of his new single “Heart Of Mine” (out digitally on LFC on 1 October), with support from Jade Hopcroft. Los Angeles’ The Neighbourhood play a free show at Birthdays – their UK debut – which is sure to be a very lively one. Over at Rough Trade East, Mumford And Sons play a very intimate show to showcase their long-anticipated new album, Babel. Wednesday night sees the return of the Club Killing Moon series at The Bull Gate, with their new signings Duologue headlining. Some interesting shows on Thursday night, including the launch of Music Week Breakout at XOYO, and recent Columbia signings Peace at Barfly, with support from the buzzy Temples and JAWS. On Friday night, there’s only really one place to be – and that’s our show at The Windmill in Brixton where we host the fabulous Aussie outfit Deep Sea Arcade on their latest European tour. Support comes from Israel Cannan, Low Moon Low and Whistlejacket.
