Days And Nights At The Takeaway 2: February

The second instalment of Days And Nights At The Takeaway, is released this Friday. The new track, ‘Faint Eligible Remains‘, is a collaboration with multi-talented London-based composer/producer/guitarist Leo Abrahams.

“We started this track by using a machine leo took round called the luminist garden,” Seb explains, “It’s like a little garden made of wires that reacts when you run your fingers through it or play some sound on it”

The sounds generated by this intuitive, looping soundboard device were then supplemented by piano (played by both musicians) and guitar.

As with all the singles in the series, the piece is backed with a remix, this time by fellow Polar Bear and Acoustic Ladyland-founder Pete Wareham. You can hear the tracks now and purchase them from this Friday (Feb 24) on our Bandcamp page.

Welcome To The Takeaway!

Days And Nights At The Takeaway is a new monthly singles club, curated by Polar Bear‘s Sebastian Rochford, which will run throughout 2012. On the last Friday of each month (payday!), The Takeaway will release a brand new track, featuring Seb collaborating with different musicians every time. Each single will be backed with an exclusive remix.

All the tracks will be recorded in Seb’s studio in a former London takeaway (hence the name). Seb will be working with some spectacular guests so keep your eyes peeled on The Takeaway for news, photos and videos.

The first release in the series, ‘Love A Sacred Path‘ features American poet & singer Gina Loring and British Indian vocalist Ranjana Ghatakand a superb b-side remix by Keysound/Hyperdub mainstays LV.

“Gina and Ranjana had wanted to do something together for a while, and we made this track when Gina was over from LA for a couple of weeks,” says Seb of the hook-up, “This is what we made. Hope you enjoy it!”

You’ll be able to hear and purchase it on our Bandcamp page from January 27th.
