Concert gratuit le 20 octobre à La Flèche d'Or avec : Erland & The Carnival, The John Steel Singers et Samantha Crain. 

Le label anglais Full Time Hobby fête ses 10 ans ce mois-ci et organise pour l’occasion une série de concerts à Londres et à Paris.
Les réjouissances parisiennes auront lieu le 20 octobre :

“Une merveille pop-folk rare” LIBERATION
“une démonstration lyrique digne du meilleur Divine Comedy” LES INROCKS

“en refusant de trancher entre krautrock et psyché-rock, les australiens signent un disque formidable” LES INROCKS

“une voix puissante et fêlée, à mi-chemin entre l’intouchable Karen Dalton et l’insaissable Regina Spesktor ” TELERAMA fff
“le nouveau prodige folk est une amérindienne” ROLLING STONE


Le label publie également “What The Hell Are You Doing ?“, une compilation inédite de deux CDs rassemblant les morceaux phares du label au cours de ses dix années d’activité. Une véritable déclaration d’indépendance.

“What The Hell Are You Doing? It’s something that has probably been asked of anyone starting an independent label over the last ten years”, explains label co-founder Nigel Adams of the compilation’s title.

“Certainly there has never been a less financially rewarding or glamorous time to launch a label as the music industry continues to barrel on into the unknown, but for most of us doing it, running an independent label is still the most rewarding, challenging and enjoyable role we could be in”.

Inspired by classic independents like Elektra, Sub Pop, Creation and Rough Trade, Full Time Hobby began in 2004 with the aim of releasing music it truly loved and that needed its support.

Featuring songs from Tunng, The Hold Steady, Malcolm Middleton, The Leisure Society, White Denim, Erland & The Carnival, Timber Timbre, Smoke Fairies and many more, ‘What The Hell Are You Doing?: A Full Time Hobby Tenth Anniversary Compilation’ is a true declaration of independence.
