On Monday 17th March London-based quartet MY SAD CAPTAINS will release their much anticipated new album - and Bella Union debut - Best Of Times into the World.
Recorded in 2013 in Bella Union Studios in Hackney, London and mixed in Portland, Oregon by Larry Crane (Elliot Smith, Stephen Malkmus) Best Of Times is a lovely, subtle album of beautifully crafted indie. Think British Sea Power, The Go-Betweens, American Analog Set or Destoyer and you're somewhere close.
My Sad Captains will celebrate the release of their new album with a special launch show at Sebright Arms on Monday 17th March and will be touring throughout April & May.
