The Eversons - Could It Ever Get Better?

Today The Eversons are releasing the first single and video from their debut album Summer Feeling. The song is 'Could It Ever Get Better?', and the video was made by Trophy Wife Productions. These are the same crazy geniuses that have animated puppets for The Brunettes and paper and cardboard for Voom. This time they have turned their hand to stop motion felt animation.

The single is also available as a free/name-your-price download with exclusive b-side ' I Don't Wanna Be Your Friend' via Bandcamp.

Could It Ever Get Better?:

01 Could It Ever Get Better?
02  I Don't Wanna Be Your Friend

Princess Chelsea - The Cigarette Duet, now on 7" Vinyl!

It's been a long time coming...

Today we are proud to bring you the first ever Lil' Chief Records 7" (we're not counting the almost mythical first release by The Brunettes). Perhaps unsurprisingly, it's for the insanely catchy The Cigarette Duet by Princess Chelsea.

Pressed on beautiful opaque blue vinyl and with a drawing by Harlequin Jones on the cover, it's limited to 300 copies, however we have just 100 copies for the web store as the band will be offering the rest on the merch table at their shows.

You can have a listen here [Bandcamp], or here [SoundCloud], or at the bottom of this post even. The digital version comes with a bonus radio edit of The Cigarette Duet (you get the digital version when you buy the 7" anyway).

The 12" pressing of Lil' Golden Book on gold vinyl sold out, so be careful that you don't miss out this.

Oh, and you can also download a free Princess Chelsea track via the recently released Lil' Chief Records mixtape - These Shaky Isles.

The Cigarette Duet (European Tour Edition):

Side A:
01 The Cigarette Duet
02 Positive Guy Meets Negative Man

Side B:
03 Goodnight Little Robot Child

Digital Bonus Track:
04 The Cigarette Duet (Radio Edit)

Miles Loveless Says: a Princess Chelsea + Pikachunes tour diary!

The Princess Chelsea and Pikachunes tour of Europe is official underway, starting in the beautiful city of Prague!

Miles Loveless, aka Pikachunes and bass player for Princess Chelsea, has started a diary to write about his experiences on the road, which should be of interest to fans of both bands.

You can find the confirmed tour dates here, however there are some more shows that are still to be announced.

If they are coming to a town near you please come and say 'hello' - they have travelled a very long way to be there!
