EP Launch Party Tonight!!!

9 p.m. tonight the Roundabout trio shall launch their new 4-track EP "Rock House" with a two-set show at Underground in downtown Tartu. The official release date is March 1st:

The shows in Tallinn, Liepaja and Valmiera last week were great fun - thanks to all who attended and helped set them up! A bit of a shock came at Von Krahl in Tallinn, when a group of local blues fans showed up with a homemade blues award to honour Andres: a metal plaque with the inscription "To the best Estonian blues guitarist of the century" and a suitcase amp. Thank you very much, gentlemen!!! :)

Steve Lury Single Out 13.2.13!

It's time to confirm the release date of the Steve Lury CD single - recorded at the White Room in Tartu in June 2012, the mixing was delayed and delayed and delayed... But it's all done now and you can get your copy on Febryary 13th!

The "A-side" of the CD single features a brand new track called "Someplace Nice", with Steve handling the vocals, harmonica and whistling (!), Andres Roots on guitar, Peeter Piik on upright bass, and Raul Terep on drums. 

The "B-side" is "Spider In My Bed", the first original composition Andres ever played with a band way back in 1996 - it has since been recorded by Green Bullfrog (in 2001, with Peeter already on bass - and no, *not* the Ritchie Blackmore band), Bullfrog Brown (in 2004; this live version won the Blindman's Blues Forum showcase some years later) and Roundabout (in 2011 - as an instrumental studio jam titled "Spider Jam", with Raul on drums).

Both tracks were written by Andres Roots and produced by Asko-Romé Altsoo & Andres Roots.
