Release date: 23rd July 2011
Ever wondered what ‘DeJa Vu’ would sound like if it had been recorded by the La’s in a Digbeth studio, Birmingham and with Robin Pecknold at the controls?
Well sort of, here is the new record from Goodnight Lenin, a 17 min aural waterbed of a rural midlands dream. Frankly the band have gigged their pants off in the last year and built up a solid audience before entering the studio with Tim Felton (Seeland) and Brian Duffy (Modified Toy Orchestra) to help advance the fertile skiffle of their debut seven and nail that Greenwich Village Elektra DNA.
For fans of Fleet Foxes, Johnny Flynn, Tunng and Laura Marling
