MPFree: Tan Vampires - Paper Cranes
Ashley Team Laverne
Welcome one and all to the returning MPFree. Following last week’s triumphant 6 Music Live gigs down at that there Maida Vale, there simply wasn’t room to squeeze the free download in. But now it’s back, bigger than ever, and with an absolute wonder to wash away the blues of the rainy week ahead.
Tan Vampires are a sextet from Dover, New Hampshire, USA for fans of “Radiohead, Wilco, Local Natives, and Neil Young.” Personally, we see more My Morning Jacket and it’s a marching wave of brass, woodland folk and forlorn lyrics. They formed in 2008 having released two albums; 2011's For Physical Fitness, and 2013's Ephemera. The band is currently hard at work on a new album which should be out in the spring of next year. They also play a free gig in Manchester tonight if you’re from that side of the world.
