Liela Moss of the Duke Spirit has announced her debut solo LP.

'My Name Is Safe In Your Mouth' will arrive on November 9 through Bella Union, with shows set to follow in London, Manchester and Brighton during December. Tickets go on sale at 10am on August 8.

Speaking to Clash, who premiered the video for the record's first single, Wild As Fire, she said:

"The video was shot in deep Somerset, in wild remote countryside! The photographer Ren Rox (who created the album cover image with film and lens filters only, no digital intervention!) shot and directed the video, as I really wanted her aesthetic to overlap into these first visual moments for the album. Her ideas celebrate vibrancy and found-forms in nature and she brings a lush, filmic quality to what is a very simple and humble piece.

Ren followed me like a shadow on several of my walks, through fields and along hidden tracks that are usually hard to find. She tried not to disturb me much as I meandered through the fairly secret places I had often walked to think about the songs on the album, to try melody out loud where nobody could hear me! These overgrown spaces are where I occasionally go and consider lyrics and ask the trees for answers... or just absorb more oxygen."

The track is charming in its indie-folk simplicity, while Moss's haunting vocals wouldn't sound out of place on the Valley of the Dolls soundtrack.
 

The Duke Spirit, meanwhile, put out 'Sky Is Mine', in August 2017.

Sons of Bill - Oh God Ma'am (Album Review)
Thu 12 Jul 2018
Almost everything you need to know about the remarkable transformation Virginia siblings Sons of Bill have undergone on ‘Oh God Ma’am’ can be gleaned from its album cover. An old-fashioned colour TV lies on the floor, smashed and surrounded by dirt, its shadow eclipsing the light. The screen shows a grinning, optimistic, all American kid, his image bisected by the shattered screen. The dream, as they say, is over.
Immortal - Northern Chaos Gods (Album Review)
Wed 11 Jul 2018
Not many Norwegian black metal bands can claim to be a legitimate part of popular culture. They’re not usually seen doing ‘What’s In My Bag?’ videos or hanging out with Post Malone. Instead, they’re in the forest. Being grim. Being evil.

Wed 18 Jul 2018
The Beths are learning Welsh. It’s a little after 10 at Le Pub in Newport, and the New Zealand indie-pop band are parroting back a few reliable words and phrases shouted from the crowd. They try cwtch and iechyd da on for size before Elizabeth Stokes draws a line under it. “We’re butchering this,” she says. “Let’s do a song.”
Bodega - Endless Scroll (Album Review)
Mon 16 Jul 2018
Bodega are the art school kids who might sneer at you for Instagramming a picture at their show. They’re the ones who, after a convincing “this isn’t satire”, order their audience to check their emails during the next song. Bodega roll out lines like “I touch myself while staring at your chat text box” and “I use my computer for everything, heaven knows I’m miserable now.” Their message: we are dominated by consumer culture and technology is taking over our lives.

Mon 23 Jul 2018
There are several ways for records to stand out. They might say something meaningful, or push the boundaries of a genre. Others are so good at purveying a particular mood and atmosphere that they don’t need to do much else. Ovlov’s second album, ‘TRU’, is one of those.
