Mountain Bird
Don’t Mind
Single Out NOW
BITBUK seriously loves this track!

Mountain Bird is an ambitious dream-pop act hailing all the way from Stockholm, Sweden. Led by main vocalist, songwriter, arranger and producer, Adam Ohman, they have already caught the attention of the industry folk back home and are now planning to expand over the border.
Don’t Mind is their debut single, which sounds like a dreamy interpretation of reality, and from start to finish it is set to take their listener on a journey far and beyond.
Adam’s ability to mold spacy soundscapes with ambient layers of pianos, guitars and synthesizers, reminds of the cinematic grandeur of M83. Gently wrapped in reverb, the production of the song becomes haunting, and resembles the epic feel of Sigur Ros and Tame Impala’s widely known sound. The choruses of Don’t Mind seem to rush through the atmosphere and explode freely in distant space.
Don’t Mind creates a solitary and voluminous texture, which is carried well by ethereal harmonies, vocals and electric guitars. Its main goal is to leave one touched and enchanted, and is available to do just that NOW.

A Band Called Quinn are an art-pop band based in Glasgow. The four-piece have recently been working on finishing the soundtrack to a theatre performance and a live multimedia show called Biding Time (remix). The play explores the role of women, democracy and social change. Biding Time (remix) takes the protagonist Thyme’s name & archetype of aspiring starlet from a shared story and builds a completely new show. It tells one woman’s story of being signed to a major record label.

The lead track from the soundtrack is called Forget About It and has a very fast and raw energy around it. Opening the song with a fully distorted bass blast that soon fades to the back in favour of Louise’s beautiful vocals, is a bold start to any song.

The overall production resembles a mix between Metric and White Stripes, and with a touch of Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Joan Jett, it creates a full on sonic experience for everyone.

Forget About It is a song filled with hooky melodies and arrangements that add flair to the track with its consistency and conviction, and it will be available for sale and download everywhere on the 27th April.

In conjunction with the new single, Biding Time (remix), the multimedia show, is told through song, screen and silent disco headsets, creating an intimate, immersive experience reflecting the personal experiences of the show’s main performer and A Band Called Quinn’s front woman, Louise Quinn. The band will be touring most of May and performing Biding Time (remix) with its full-length soundtrack all over the UK. More information and tour dates below.

Mr Parton wrote a letter!

So, those listening to our last show will know how distressed Mr Parton was with the inconsistency regarding the nutritional info on his bag of Cadbury’s Mini Eggs. He was so distressed in fact, that he wrote the following letter. We will keep you informed of any reply we get…

'Hello there Mr and Mrs Cadbury of Joyville.

I do hope all is well in your land of mirth, merriment and frovility. It always seems so jolly on the TV, so I have deduced that you must be nice people with friendly faces. It is for this reason that I have plucked up the courage to finally put pen to paper or, to be more precise, finger to iPad. But lets not quibble, we are all friends here.

Anyway, my name is Liam. I am 29, and a keen collecter of model cars and dust. I hope you have some time to spare, as I am contacting you with a missive of the upmost urgency and importance. It is regarding something that has caused me the acute confusion and has been haunting both my waking days and now sleepless nights.

I recently purchased a small yellow bag of your delightful treats ‘Mini Eggs’. They are wonderful, divine and sexy little works of art, carved by the hands of angels one can only assume. I consumed all of the 100g that the bag claimed to contain and felt a warm and giddy sense of satisfaction in both my tummy and my loins. So far, so good.

It was then that I took to reading the bag, to check the calorie content. I have started doing this quite often, you see, as I recently retired from a job as a novelty tuba player, and have been embracing a healthier lifestyle. I have shed four stone in the last 18 months, and am now enjoying the ability to touch my toes, wear skinny jeans, and blend in with giraffes on the odd occasion that I have become lost in the Serenghati. A lovely place, should you ever get the chance to go but do remember to pack a hat. It was upon reading the information on calories that my confusion was first piqued. You see it clearly states that 25g of Mini Eggs has 120 kcal. So surely by a simple mathematical equation of multiplying by four, a 100g bag should 480 kcal. This was fine I thought and I started carefully planning the rest of my days eating around this. However I then looked again, and on the same packet it says that a 100g serving contains 490 kcal. This is a whole 10 more kcal than my original equation had suggested.

Now of course, the very first thing I did was to check my equation was correct, and the error didn’t lie with me. To do this, I purchased an abacus, a bag of rice, and a penny whistle. I used these to double check my calculations and all seemed to be compliant. I then flew to Switzerland where I assembled a team of scientists, all with magnificent beards and white coats, to see if they could solve the riddle. Yet despite their best efforts, which even included four days at the Hadron Collider, my initial calculations seemed watertight.

I even broadcast the issue on my podcast, which is downloaded globally to 10,000 listeners, and still no one could fathom what was going on. It has however started quite a wave of interest all over the world, and whilst I stop short of calling it an uprising, there is certainly a brooding sense of unrest and confusion amongst the people. And if pre-revolutionary France taught us anything, it was how dangerous such unrest can become.

So I do hope that you can see that contacting you was an absolute last resort. I know you are busy feeding and watering the angels that carve Mini Eggs, and putting the jelly candy into your Marvellous Creations, but desperate times call for desperate measures. The world needs an answer. I need an answer; Why, oh why, is there 10 more calories in a 100g serving of Mini Eggs, than there is in four 25g servings? Is it better to eat them in smaller portions? Are the eggs plotting something? Is this a conspiracy? Where did I leave my coat?

I look forward to your reponse. The sleepless nights are taking their toll, and the cold sweats are getting worse. I therefore hope that I can be compensated in someway for my troubles. An abacus is not cheap, and neither is a taxi from Portsmouth to Switzerland, let alone renting a Hadron Collider for four days. I won’t even mention that the scientists I hired need paying, and the constant phone calls from them threatening the wellbeing of my loved ones are become a dreary burden.

A lifetime supply of Mini Eggs will help to ease the pain, as would a Creme Egg castle. Or a lifesized statue of me, made of the same stuff you put in the aforementioned Marvellous Creation bar. You know, the popping, jelly filled one.

Please get in touch soon. I really want to move on with my life and become a better man in a better world.

Best wishes,

Master Liam Parton
