Album review by Slapped For The Very First Time

7 Oct

Slapped For The Very First Time posted an unexpected and really lovely and review of the first Wasp Summer record, Close As A Slow Dance. Thank you, Espen. “…there is a voice – both literally and musically – shining through that seems capable of winning you over with an even more distinct identity of its own come the next release.”


Close as a Slow Dance Tour Updates

26 May
Tour update #4: Great day yesterday. Climbed around in an old blast furnace, sat in a whirling flurry of birch pollen in Köln, caught a great ride into France via Rheinland Pfalz and Luxembourg. Was driven to an old cloister where the Boumchaka crew, awesome promoters for my Thionville show tonight, were running the kitchen for another gig. Saw the running sheet backstage. Headliner: Mudhoney. Moshed around a hyper-vigilant security dude. Got chatting to the band after the show. Australians, go see them in July. They fucking rock and they’re really lovely guys. Viva la France!

Tour update #3: Small but perfect house gig last night. Today is a travelling day. I go to Metz via Köln and Thionville.

Tour update #2: Made it to Duisburg!

Tour update #1: My Mitfahrgelegenheit driver didn’t show up. Waiting at Berlin Zoo for a possible ride at 10am. Concert tonight in Duisburg. Good times!
