Sorrow
Under The Yew Possessed

Night School have snapped up the re-release rights to Sorrow’s 1993 LP Under The Yew Possessed. A neo-folk outfit centred around husband and wife duo Rose McDowall and Robert Lee, the band serve up some nice ethereal jangles here atop which McDowall coos in a tranquil manner. It’s like a more cerebral version of what PJ Harvey was doing at the time.

Rose McDowall
Our Twisted Love

Rose McDowell is the raven-haired Scottish lady responsible for one half of Strawberry Switchblade but who has since gone on to have an unusual idiosyncratic career. Here is her latest batch of dark and slightly unhinged pop emerging from her recent return to the live scene. Think the beautiful but bleak pop-noir of late '70s Nico. 

Strawberry Switchblade
1982 4-Piece Demo

Strawberry Switchblade were a beautiful sugar-sweet indie-pop band from the 80’s. In the intervening time their cult reputation has only grown, making the appearance of these early recordings particularly tantalising. 1982 4-Piece Demo, from before the band stripped down to a duo, is a previously unheard insight into the band’s very beginnings, and a lovely listen to boot. 7” on Night School.

Rose McDowall
Cut With The Cake Knife

Rose McDowall was a member of much-loved indie darlings Strawberry Switchblade, and Cut With A Cake Knife compiles songs that were originally intended for that group's second album. Instead, McDowall recorded them herself over 1988 and 1989. Lovely and bright indie pop from an expert of the form. CD or swirly vinyl on Night School.
