Elbow World Cafe Live EP on 10" Vinyl
Celebrated British band Elbow is set to finish another remarkable year with the release of the World Café Live EP. This special limited edition five-track EP was recorded at WXPN’s NON-COMMvention at World Café Live in Philadelphia on May 14, 2014, during Elbow’s acclaimed 2014 North American tour. Four of the EP’s five tracks are live semi acoustic versions of the songs featured on The Take Off And Landing Of Everything, elbow’s sixth studio album, released in March of this year.
Recently named Album of the Year by the UK’s prestigious music publication Q Magazine, The Take Off And Landing Of Everything debuted at #1 on the official UK album chart and #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart in the States. The album, hailed by fans and critics alike, was followed by a sold-out tour that saw the band expand their rabid fan base across the U.S.
The EP also includes a gorgeous rendition of fan favorite, “Scattered Black and Whites,” a song from the band’s 2001 debut album Asleep in the Back. Vocalist Guy Garvey recalled this song in a 2009 Drowned in Sound interview: "It's still considered the best song we've ever written by lots of fans, and I can't say I disagree. It's memories, snapshots of childhood mixed together in the same way I used to mix together black and white photographs on the floor, to mix up my memories and find inspiration."
