We're pleased that Hey! made it into the top 20 albums of 2016 put together by Davey Hammond for The Smelly Flowerpot on Cambridge 105.

Equity - new single out now

21.10.16

Equity - our brand new single is out now on Honk Records. Taken from our forthcoming album, Hey!, Equity opens with a pounding drum beat that sets the scene for a rhythmic vocal chant before the guitars kick-in and the song opens up. Anar Yusufov's melodic Fender Rhodes and bouyant vocal harmonies lift the choruses to a glorious cacophony of hooks. Honza Keller's epic-sounding cello sweeps in to take the song out, capping three minutes and 39 seconds of pop swagger. Equity is streaming on Spotify and available now from the Latimer House shop, our Bandcamp page, iTunes and Amazon. Dig it!

Light A Candle on the radio

13.08.16

Light A Candle, a song from our forthcoming album Hey!, was given a spin by Jason Ross on his Bound In Music show on Croydon Radio Friday night. It was a cracking show, with a very cool vibe running throughout. Give it a listen here: http://www.croydonradio.com/embed/showembedcode.php?HistoryID=da92fa26-f5d1-d5df-fa14-6117fd65efeb And thank you, Jason. Hey! will be released soon, watch this space... new music and new art coming your way...

Hey! Latimer House have a new collection of songs...

24.04.16

We've finished mixing the songs that we've spent the last umpteen months recording for our next album, Hey! Latimer House on this record are Joe Cook (vocals & guitars), Michael Jetton (bass & guitar), Anar Yusufov (Hammond organ, grand piano, mini Moog, Rhodes) and David Landštof (drums & percussion). Our friends Jan Keller (cello), Justin Lavash (guitar),Ondřej Smeykal (didgeridoo), Tomáš Reindl (tabla), Robert Vašíček (Hammond organ) and Štěpán Zbytovský (flute & bass clarinet) all played, and played brilliantly. Josefine Cook, Yağmur Çağlar, Milena Černáková, Eleanor Wilson, and Barbora Hořejší all sang. Our master of ceremonies in the studio was Derek Saxenmeyer, who recorded and mixed our music, and played on some of it, too. The artwork for Hey! is looking super good, thanks to artist Jon Measures. We'll be unveiling Jon's work, giving our social media a bit of a facelift and - of course - releasing our new music in the not too distant future. Stay tuned here and on our social media pages for news...

Bubblegum (Joe Foster Remix) out now!

04.12.15

Latimer House return with the release of a Joe Foster remix of Bubblegum, the sneering psycho-baroque-pop closer on their debut album, All The Rage.

Foster strips the song down to the central cello riff and underpins it with a relentless beat, leaving the vocal to talk its way through the verse before tripping into reverb in the outgoing refrain.

“The spoken vibe is a sort of word jazz thing, where Rex Harrison meets the Last Poets! And the incessant metal box drums get to one after a while,” says Joe.

Bubblegum (Joe Foster Remix) is available as a digital download from the Latimer House shop, our Bandcamp page, iTunes and Amazon.

Hey! What's going on?

10.07.15

We're on the home straight and approaching the finishing line for our new album, Hey! Over the last few days we've added Hammond, cello, a bit of fretless bass, yet more guitars, and vocals to the newest batch of four songs that we're recording with Derek Saxenmeyer in Prague's Faust Studio. We now have a dozen numbers completed or near completion... just a bit more crooning to do, and then we move to mixing. We've even got John at IWANTdesign working on some artwork for Hey!... so we must be close!

Freaks Of Nuture review Until Then / Birdcage Walk

19.07.14

"Until Then expands on the group's eclectic templates, featuring horns, heavy guitars, and cerebral lyrics, all contained within one fit-to-spill package of nervous funk, somewhere between Talking Heads and Captain Beefheart territory."

DPAK on the 'positive threat' of Birdcage Walk

16.06.14

"Album release ‘All The Rage’ is a must-listen for those of you who like a sort of tune-laden, non categorisable, true to you brand of indie-pop ('shit, think we’ve just categorised it'- non-categorising Ed.). From it, ‘Birdcage Walk’ is the latest single, full of jolly pedaled instrumentation, and positive threat." duklapragueawaykit

Irish blog Deadly Music gets geographically confused about Latimer House

22.05.14

Fecking Deadly Music ran a nice review of This Is Pop, then six  months later updated it to report Latimer House are not based in Prague, which we are! Anyway, they wrote this: "Listen to the rather magnificent indie math rock This Is Pop, a track with the folk sensibilities of Half Man Half Biscuit and the swagger of early Smiths." Thanks very much, and greetings from Prague! feckingdeadly.com
