POST/POP releases MODEL VILLAGE album “You Chose These Woes” in May

There’s a saying in these parts:

“If Kenny Lee is in a band, then your band is alright by me…”

Wise words my friends. Model Village are essentially the Avengers. A supergroup made up of ultra-talented musicians who sometimes get together and make beautiful music under the guise of a pop-folk band from Cambridge (Dan, Ian, Piers, Rachel, Kev, Kenny, Lily, Ellie and Mark are all current or former members of the residents’ committee.) Now I’m not saying any of them can fly per se, but THEIR SONGS SURE DO.*


“You Chose These Woes” is the second album from Model Village and its jam-packed full of songs that help you remember that folk needn’t be a dirty word. Some of the most catchy pop songs I’ve heard in a long time lies within and I’m particularly fond of “Walk it Off” as they came and performed it on my radio show. It was gorgeous-on-stilts and due to the power of the internet, here it is:

I just watched that and I forgot how special it was. Pardon my rather verite camera skills and my terrible joke at the end.

So the album came out earlier this year but not on the only format that counts… CASSETTE TAPE, so thats where I come in!

We have gone for MAY 8TH for the release date but you can even have a listen now. Watch my embedding skills…

You can buy it digitally and on CD through the band direct and you can preorder the tape right now…

*I would just like to take this opportunity to apologise to my 16 year old self for that segue. Also for not yet owning a Segway.


I have at least 4 releases in May 2014 on POST/POP and the first one I can reveal is a limited edition tape EP from KIITES!


So who are they? Well they are from Southend, Essex and have been championed by the likes of BBC Introducing, Eddy Temple Morris and.. ME! Here’s another look at them. Handsome bunch, the lot of them!


In a Guardians of the Galaxy line-up stylee, this is what you know:

Sophiejo Penn – vocals, cats, harry potter

Benjamin Bowen – lead guitar, glasses, ribs

Harry Kaye – bass, tattoos, left handed

Sean Paterson – rhythm guitar, hats, vests

Mikey Glenister – drums/wrestling/beards


Me and Mikey and his twin brother Rob go WAY back, so I am incredibly happy to be releasing this EP for them. You can hear one of the songs off the EP right here and right now…


Brilliant right? Want to see the music video? of course you do!

I will be putting up a pre-order with artwork and more info on the band in the next week or so, but until then, click on any or all of the links below to find out more!
