Adam Stafford is a Scottish singer and songwriter in the same vein as Arab Strap or the Twilight Sad (the latter he directs videos for and recently toured with), but Adam brings a unique experimental lilt to his indie rock that is a little less sad bastard and a little more childlike wonder. This acclaimed filmmaker and frontman for Falkirk greats Y’all Is Fantasy Island is releasing his debut solo single this summer on Kingfisher Bluez, and we couldn’t be happier! The single features just Adam’s voice and a loop pedal, evolving and deepening as he adds more layers. So sit back and let it happen to you!
“Shot-Down You Summer Wannabes”

Watch the brand new live video for “Shot-down You Summer Wannabes” below! Full screen it!
The lovely people at Discorder have reviewed Sebastian Fleet + Count Oak‘s Sun 7″ and they had all sorts of nice to say about it.
“The psych-folk tendencies on Sebastian Fleet + Count Oak’s first 7” display the band’s already unique and distinctive sound, something difficult to claim in a day and age of pastiche and revivals.”
Village’s upcoming single on Kingfisher Bluez has been featured on Canadian music journal, Exclaim!
“…chiming guitars and velvety vocals that are blanketed in a thick swath of narcotic reverb. The tempos are slow and the arrangements relatively sparse, giving the songs a woozy, morning-after feel.” – Alex Hudson, Exclaim.ca
Village’s EP will be available from our webstore late summer/early fall. Very exciting!
I couldn’t be prouder to introduce to you, the newest KFB 7″ getting excited to sit on your shelf. It’s Eeek!’s debut 7″ for the fantastic song “Potential”. If you don’t know Eeek! they are long-time bros of the whole KFB family- Colin has played in The Shiny Diamonds and has been featured on our early digital compilations too. These guys live and breathe indie-rock and if you are into scrappy post-Cap’n Jazz emo I think you are gonna love it. The record is available to buy on our online store now, but it won’t ship for about 3 weeks.
Only 250 copies made! Hand numbered on forest green vinyl!

Our 4th Christmas party was our biggest yet and it was a resounding success as well, with me actually breaking even. Thank you so so so much for being there with us through all of this excitement! and thanks for buying our records! Seb Fleet and Count Oak’s Sun 7″ is now sold out in it’s limited glow-in-the-dark format and a less-limited black vinyl release will be out in january. Happy winter holidays!
