    Planets from 2011 completes the trilogy of albums written and recorded in Berlin after Chula (2010) and Unterwegs (2009). This album contains an eclectic collection of songs that opens with an ode to a lost superhero called "Mr. Clock" who seems superfluous in the modern world. "Wayanad" is named after a wild and beautiful area in south India, while "1990 Boys" has percussionist Noni at the vocal helm meandering through fragments of lost youth. "Prufrock" puts the words of T.S Eliot’s magnificent poem to music in a magical, spontaneous moment of recording, which is followed by "Morning Light" - a warm, stripped down lullaby as dawn breaks. The instrumental "Jingler" captures The Loafing Heroes in the early morning playing together intuitively as the birds chirp by the window. "Pilgrim’s Dream" is a vagabond’s paean to love, while the title track "Planets" is the farewell note that maintains the loafers’ themes of dreams and wanderlust. The album is beautifully mixed, produced and mastered by Tadklimp, and has Bartholomew Ryan on vocals, guitars and harmonica, Jonathan Jarzyna on vocals and guitars, Jaime McGill on bass clarinet and vocals, and Noni on sansula, xylophone, shakers and vocals. ... more

about

THE LOAFING HEROES Lisbon, Portugal

The Loafing Heroes are a cosmopolitan, morphing, dream-folk band based in Lisbon. The project conveys a subversive idea of ‘loafing’ (in slowness, wandering, and perhaps even as an art of living and seeing). The band’s vision of entanglement, transformation and subversive joy responds to the technological overload and ecological catastrophe of our troubled times. ... more
