Six Long Years: Nosferatu D2 reissue / free “Older, Wiser, Sadder” EP / Full-Live Set Video

Audio Antihero has been going for six long years. I’ve been doing this for most of my god damn twenties. That also means it has been six long years since Nosferatu D2‘s stunning debut album saw a release. I’m also leaving the country pretty soon, so who knows if any more label birthdays are coming – so we’re celebrating:

First up, there’s a remastered free/pay-what-you-want collection of non-album Nosferatu D2 recordings titled “Older, Wiser, Sadder” – It’ll be up on Spotify, Apple Music,Rdio, Deezer, etc, very soon too. Huge thanks to Drowned in Sound for this awesome write-up. “Heartbreak in motion” – woo!

ALSO, we’ve got a limited edition tangerine cassette edition reissue of Nosferatu D2’s “We’re Gonna Walk Around this City with Our Headphones on to Block Out the Noise”which you can order here with lossless download.

PLUS, we’ve also dug (i.e Adam gave it to me) full set multi-camera video recording of one of Nosferatu D2’s few gigs. They’re playing an annual Croydon house party festival called “Malcfest” circa 2006/2007? It’s rough and raw but I think we’re pretty lucky to have it.

Out Now: Frog – “Kind of Blah” (Vinyl / DL / Streaming)

It’s out! Frog‘s “Kind of Blah” LP is out now! We made it look and sound as good as we possibly could so I hope you’ll support it and enjoy it – because it rules (and vinyl is expensive, yo). This is the kind of aching guitar music that reminds you why you ever gave a fuck about any of this nonsense in the first place.

Listen / Buy: Bandcamp (LP: £10 / DL: £5) / iTunes / Spotify / Rdio

It’s had some really nice support at press and radio. Steve Lamacq, Huw Stephens and Tom Ravenscroft have been playing it a wee bit and lots of really nice press.


“A safer bet there’s never been – this record is essential.”GoldFlakePaint

“A bit of a masterpiece.”7BitArcade

“Oh, god. Help me, words. Help me convey what a blessing Frog is.”Collapse Board

“Utterly brilliant…they make you nostalgic for memories you never had and take you back to places you’ve never before been.”London In Stereo

“Frog sounds like Isaac Brock wearing a Stetson while jigging through a speakeasy quaffing nostalgia…Frog are a strange duo, but they work well that way.”Bearded Magazine

“Dreamy Americana soundscapes…”The Line of Best Fit

“Makes me grin so hard I think my face may actually split into two separate parts.”The 405

“Kind of Blah is America, the U S of A in eleven songs – quirky, joyous, breathless, exhausting, addictive, heartbreaking and downright weird, accelerating towards a distant horizon while keeping its eyes firmly on a halcyon past that sure seems like it should have been more fun.”Wake the Deaf

Free Single / Vinyl Pre-Order: Low Low Low La La La Love Love Love’s “Last”

Hello friends,

Audio Antihero kicks off a busy and expensive 2015 (did I tell you I got engaged?) with a new and free single from Low Low Low La La La Love Love Love. They’re a band I’ve loved for a wee while, courtesy of my transatlantic buddy Emile’s Other Electricities label…and because it’s good to share things with friends, we’ve teamed up with a bit of a jobshare to release “Last” the aptly titled final album LowLow.

The album is out Feb 16th on Vinyl and Download, it looks absolutely beautiful and sounds a little better.

For a wee snapshot of what the record has to offer, stream/download the free single “Burrow” below:

The album is available for pre-order now from our Bandcamp / iTunes and Other Electricities.

Plus, psssst. We’ll also be launching the album with a small show at Servant Jazz Quarters in Dalston on Feb 19th. Support comes from Superman Revenge Squad and Owl & Mouse.

Five Long Years of Audio Antihero (Free Birthday Compilation/50% Discount) + “You & Me – EP + Halloween Spectacular”

Hello friends,

Today is Audio Antihero’s fifth birthday. Can you believe that? Half a frickin’ decade ago, AAH “released” Nosferatu D2‘s “We’re Gonna Walk Around This City With Our Headphones on to Block Out the Noise” and Benjamin Shaw‘s “I Got the Pox, the Pox is What I Got” without a clue. Jeepers.

Anyway, you can download a free “Five Long Years” compilation to celebrate our continued existence. Ten of my favourite songs from the catalogue and a couple of hidden fun bits too.

Also, if you’re quick (ends Friday) you can get 50% off anything on the Audio Antihero Bandcamp with the discount code “fuckthisshit” – so, have a look –


Jack Hayter, Cloud and Broken Shoulder recently all re-worked Benjamin Shaw‘s “You & Me” for this lovely cash-in EP.

It was designed to help me sell more of Ben’s “Goodbye, Cagoule World” album…and it did. It was also intended to help get us the on the radio some more and thanks to Steve Lamacq, Gideon Coe and Tom Ravenscroft that worked too. You all fell right into my trap. Thanks. x

FINAL THING: Audio Antihero’s Halloween Spectacular is up now to listen to and it rocks.
