Released on August 29nd, Teepee, is the second album from upcoming London tunesmiths The Perishers. Following on from their acclaimed debut album Hurts Like Hell, an altogether rockier beast, Teepee is a return to basics, a culminative collection of acoustic songs that can draw comparison to the likes of Teenage Fanclub, Elbow and Doves.
Tracks such as "Same Old" and "Whats It For", reflective, questioning songs mix perfectly with the sleepy summer vibes of "Friday Afternoon Song" and the anthemic "If You Want To Do The People A Favour," a song surely destined for the darker corners of daytime radio. Produced by the legendary Adam Whittaker (Julian Cope, Beck), the album was recorded over a blurry weekend in deep Hampshire countryside in the small village of Ramsdell.
Embracing the warm air, fuelled only by cigarettes and alcohol The Perishers set about recording a record that eschews all the right vibes solid, imaginative songwriting that manages to bridge the divide between contemplation and optimism. Summer music for a reflective refuge.
Thank you The Perishers, for an album I will be pleased to play again and again. ER -- Maverick Magazine
