Stealing Sheep #3 - Noah & The Paper Moon

Facebook /

The last time I saw Stealing Sheep was a strange one, at The Station Sessions in London's St Pancras station, whilst thousands upon thousands of commuters stream past a makeshift stage three Liverpool based musicians play unconventional psychedelic pop-folk, it shouldn't work but it does (although it passes by those too attached to their iPhones and Blackberry's).

Track forward a few months and the girls have shared stages with Slow Club and toured with Emmy The Great, now comes the exciting new that Stealing Sheep have been picked up by Heavenly Records who'll release a retrospective EP "Noah & The Paper Moon" on October 24th ahead of an album in early 2012 (pre-order at Piccadilly Records), the six track release contains most of the tracks on their previous 7" releases that I talked about in June and new track "Paper Moon" which you can listen to below and download (along with two other tracks) for the cost of an email address here.

If you've yet to fall for the trio's mystical and undeniably sweet charms then "Paper Moon" is a great entry point, off-kilter rhythms, hand-claps and whimsical melodies all swathed in beautiful harmonies and tribal drums add up to a track that is equally  entrancing and brilliantly fun.

The girls have a few London shows coming up, including support slots with The Fixers, Lulu & The Lampshades and a Huw Stephens presents shows - full details on facebook. Will definitely make at least one of them!
