Rob St. John and Woodpigeon release a joint 10″ single on Song, By Toad.
The split between Rob St. John and Mark Hamilton out of Woodpigeon is in fact a collaboration between long-time friends, with a third artist, Edinburgh painter Jake Bee, contributing the artwork. St John has a full band show at Henry’s in Edinburgh on 29th May, but with some as-yet-announced shows in the weeks prior to that.
St. John’s songs – ‘Young Sun’ and ‘Folly’ – were recorded in Edinburgh in September 2014 utilising vintage analogue kit and the voices of Tom Western, Mark Andrew Hamilton and Ian Humberstone.
Woodpigeon’s contribution to the release is a ‘mini-song-suite’ entitled ‘Trouble Comes’ and was recorded in Montreal’s Hotel2Tango, plus Catriona Sturton on harmonica, Mark Andrew Hamilton on guitars, Graham Lessard on bass and Jonah Fortune on drums and percussion.
