Noah and the Whale

Indie folksters Noah and the Whale will finally bring their fourth studio LP, Heart of Nowhere to U.S. shores.

The 10-song set is out September 24 via Caroline Records. The Londoners crafted the release at West London’s British Grove Studios and it marks the follow-up to their 2011 opus, Last Night on Earth, which featured the ultra-catchy single, “L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.” Yeah, you know it.

If you’re as geeked as we are about the new material, there’s more fun ahead, as the band will embark on an 18-date fall run of shows kicking off September 27 in Seattle. An October 22 date at Irving Plaza will conclude the tour.

For a taste of the new material, get a glimpse of “There Will Come a Time” below.

Plus, check out “Lifetime,” Noah and the Whale’s current UK single. Of the deeply reflective tune, frontman Charlie Fink revealed in a press statement, “It’s looking back on that period of life, on adolescence. ‘Lifetime’ was a reminder for me that I spend so much time on the road, and so much time away from London, that when my friend said he was getting married I became aware of how much I had drifted from my friends, and how little I knew what was going on in anyone’s lives.”

And then There’s this Apartment with a Tub in the Kitchen

The standard pre-war tenement layout included a bathtub in the kitchen. It made sense, as this was the central location of plumbing. The phenomenon began with the advent of plumbing in city tenements between 1901 and 1905. With bathhouses no longer necessary to wash up, the kitchen became central. The tub here made sense given […]
