Release Date - World of Fox with Amelia Fletcher

oh yes - the debut 45 from World of Fox and Amelia Fletcher is out today

you know Simon Fox from Krafla, Grover and of course his Respect album

and Amelia is currently in the Catenary Wires, you almost certainly have records by Tender Trap, Marine Research, Heavenly and Talulah Gosh too

“Be Kind To My Love” and “Oh My Love” are two tracks of melancholy, pastoral, cosmic English music played by a multi-instrumentalist from Birmingham, and a bona fide indie legend. Two tracks of indiepop, heard through a folk festival filter, a little reminiscent of Nico’s Chelsea Girl, an imagined duet between Marianne Faithfull and David Sylvian or Young Marble Giants playing Red House Painters at a library CAMRA meeting.
