On mountain tops, in gales, I pray

Cardiff’s Shape Records are a busy little outfit – always seem to have a few gigs and events on, and having that fine Sweet Baboo record in the summer, have now released an album by the mysterious H Hawkline. You can stream the whole record from their site, here, or if you want something special, you can buy one of only 150 specially pressed vinyl LPs, with special sleeves and the like.

On top of this, Shape Records have just made available a free download of a song called “I Want To Write You A Song As Good As I Can”, which was apparently part of the I’m a Dancer sessions, but didn’t make the cut. It’s pretty good as well, all quirky, plaintive vocals and seventies brass. I like it, and you can get it in exchange for your email address here.

Here’s a clip of Steven playing at one of the Shape Functions:

A doff of the cap to you…
