Noah And The Whale- Peaceful, The World Lays Me Down – Free Download

July 7, 2008

Noah and The Whale– Just downloaded this and having a quick listen- some good tunes there!

The blurb-

Noah and The Whale will release their much-anticipated debut album, Peaceful, The World Lays Me Down, on 11th August. The band, currently on tour in the UK will precede the album with a single set to be one of the songs of the summer, 5 Years Time (released on Young & Lost Club / Vertigo on 4th August).

Described in The Sunday Times as “a global hit in the making”, 5 Years Time is a glorious love song that blends the simple narrative and direct lo-fi charm of anti-folk artists such as Jeffrey Lewis or Jonathan Richman with the classic pop of Buddy Holly.

Noah and The Whale make earnest, poetic music. Their album is a collection of songs that muse on the connections between love, death and time and though 5 Years Time is the perfect invitation to their world; it is merely a piece of their puzzle. The songs move effortlessly from the epic grandeur of Arcade Fire to the intimate melancholy of Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy but all with a very clear sense of Englishness.

If you missed their set at Glastonbury, don’t worry, Noah and the Whale will be at several festivals this summer including Latitude, Secret Garden, Cambridge Folk Festival, Summer Sundae, Field Day and V Festival. They’ll also be playing an album launch show at London’s Roundhouse on 11th August, where a series of paintings that make up the album artwork will also be on exhibition.
