Coralspin now on CD Baby

You can now buy our spiffing debut album Honey and Lava from CD Baby in either CD or mp3 download format. The link is:
http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/coralspin

Although we’d prefer you to buy directly from us, because we get less money via third-party sales, we will still love and venerate you if you buy our album from anywhere. We will still build a shrine to you and say a prayer of thanks to you every night and shed a little tear at how wonderful it is that such a tasteful person could also be so generous.

(One thing to be aware of with CD Baby is that they only keep low stock to start with with new bands, so you will be surer of getting your copy in good time by buying from us.)

Coralspin on Between Two Worlds tonight

Just got confirmation that we’re appearing on Kevin Slaymaker’s radio show Between Two Worlds tonight (ie. Monday, 8-10pm). Might even be the opening track, so tune in on time. (There doesn’t seem to be any option that allows you to listen later). You can listen online here.

[Update: Yes, we were the opening track. Thanks Kevin.]

The artist still known as Christopher

The Honey and Lava album cover was done by the amazing artist Christopher Townsend, and he deserves a big shout-out. His website is here.

His metal sculptures are incredible too. I’ve bought some, they are beautiful as well as arty, and not at all ugly-East-London-conceptual-art-gallery-your-eyes-hurt-to-look-at-it-rubbish. They are objects you want to look at all day, just like his paintings.

Photos of his work don’t do them justice. While they look good in the photos it’s nothing like the tangible pleasure you get when you see them for real. His “trees” sell like hot cakes — hence his separate domain lovethetree.com — but here’s a sort of proggy sci-fi one one I particularly like — seeing the larger versions of these in the flesh is like walking into a 60’s Brian Aldiss book-cover-scenario (in my mind at least):

Christopher Townsend sculpture

Imagine it 50 feet tall!
