New Releases: Andrew Bird and Peter Broderick

Historic British indie record label Bella Union have recently announced a couple of new releases which have got us really excited; Andrew Bird and Peter Broderick will both release new albums on the label in the new year. It could be argued that both artists are two of the best kept secrets in music. Where Sufjan and Bon Iver grab the big indie headlines, Bird and Broderick (a hilarious new musical sit-com?), despite being just as talented, do not seem to receive the same unadulterated love. Well, maybe that will all change in 2012.

Andrew Bird, who has just been confirmed to appear at 2012’s Field Day Festival in London, will release Break It Yourself on 5th March 2012 and will celebrate the release with a live performance at the London Barbican on the very same day.

Peter Broderick will release http://www.itstartshear.com on 20th February 2012; a much anticpated follow-up to his magnificent 2008 album Home.
