Andy Yorke: Andy Yorke may be a familiar name and for good reason – he's the former frontman of Unbelievable Truth, author of amazing songs like "Stone," "Almost Here" and "Higher Than Reason." He's also brother of the Radiohead guy, but don't let that bias your opinions – Andy more than stands on his own merits. His debut solo album, Simple, retains much of the same emotional and thematic richness found in the UT recordings, but with an intimacy of self awareness. Simple will be available for digital download on September 30 and on CD November 18.
Paper Round Kid: Paper Round Kid is the moniker of one Darren Filkins, who once played lead guitar in Damon Albarn's pre-Blur outfit, Seymore. He soon left the band to explore the world on his own terms. Since then he's kept busy as a world class photographer whose resume includes Lenny Kravitz, Simon Pegg, Nick Hornby and Wilco. Some 20 years later find Filkins back in the studio with a brand new release, Submarine, a legitimate pop record with easy comparisons to Dylan, Devendra Banhart, Yes and funky '70s key parties. Submarine will be available on September 30 as a digital only release. - Myspace page
