The Wave Pictures are proud to announce that their first release of 2012 will be on WIAIWYA as part of the label’s seven-themed 7” Singles Club. The three exclusive tracks, “Salt”, “New Born Deer” and “Sugar Maple Charcoal” were all recorded just after their latest album Beer In The Breakers and show the band in a reflective, folky mood – more After The Goldrush than Rust Never Sleeps. The Wave Pictures have defiantly trodden their own path, like a 21st century the Band, releasing three full length albums, 2008’s “Instant Coffee Baby” – short listed for the Guardian New Album Award and featured in many an end of year poll – the follow up “If You Leave It Alone”, and 2011’s “Beer In The Breakers”, as well as a number of solo records, acting as backing band for (among others) Daniel Johnston, Jeffrey Lewis and the Mountain Goats, and picking up an ever-growing devoted following along the way. “Lyrically, The Wave Pictures turn on a dime. They can zip from the richly observed into amusingly confessional into a Lewis Carol flight of fancy.”
