Now Hear This: Snapped Ankles | 21 Metres to Hebden Bridge

I'm getting caught up on the good albums that have come out lately. Like this one.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “441 square metres of prime real estate in the centre of a picturesque West Yorkshire market town, The Hebden Bridge Trades Club — a former socialist members’ co-operative, club, bar and music venue — overlooks the historic Leeds & Liverpool canal and oozes period charm. It is within walking distance of local amenities, bars and restaurants, and is the within commuting distance of the metropolitan hubs of Leeds, Manchester and Liverpool. This cultural centre has hosted acts of international renown, and is ripe for redevelopment. Snapped Ankles Estate Agency™ invite you to view this property. Stunning luxury is available for a limited time only.

21 Metres To Hebden Bridge is a ragged-edged document of Snapped Ankles’ 2019 live show, during which they sold out and sold up venues the length and breadth of the country. The woodwose donned their sharpest suits, and took their estate agent guise on the road. The infamous log synths became For Sale signs. The venues were measured up — 21 metres from the Hebden Bridge Trades Club stage to the pool table (accurate as of Oct. 12, 2019). A survey completed via primal, driving rock ’n’ roll. A sales pitch, a handshake. Another deal sealed, before driving to the next town and doing it all over again. The hits are racking up: I Want My Minutes Back, Rechargeable, Drink and Glide and Letter from Hampi Mountain all present and incorrect. A dance floor that flexed so hard the room shook. While one woodwose goes to work with a tape measure, the others beat hell out of their instruments like their life depends on it.”
