Past song of the week / May 2013

Flying Fox and the Hunter Gatherers

From the album Fruit and Ash

Featured track, available from May 30 to June 7

After two busy years of touring, recording, making instruments, and performing, Flying Fox and the Hunter Gatherers returns with Fruit and Ash. The new four-song EP follows up the genry-defying ensemble's debut full length, Hans My Lion. The recording is already turning heads, as does the band's live show to be sure, garnering attention from the likes of Verb and CBC Scene. Flying Fox releases Fruit and Ash on June 1 at Times Change(d) High & Lonesome Club amidst tour dates across Western Canada -- click here for show details. That isn't Winnipeg's only change to catch Flying Fox: the band is one of the acts taking over the West End Cultural Centre on June 6 for the third edition of unique Cinematheque fundraiser, Bands vs. Filmmakers, which melds the work of local filmmakers and local musicians. Download Fruit and Ash's lead single "Boatmen" and all its multiple time signatures free right here and don't miss your change to see Flying Fox live.
