We’ve recently been featured on a few podcasts from around the globe – from Queensland to Alaska to Italy. You can check them out in more detail with the details below, but we’d like to thank everyone who takes the time to listen to the music and talk about it on their podcasts.

Sonotone #262 – Featuring ‘Like Shrapnel’
We’ve been busy recording the album this year, going back and forth between London and Paris, recording in studios and bedrooms, in cities and in the countryside. But we’re very nearly there and soon we’ll be able to wrap the album up nice and snug and send him out into the world.
Like Shrapnel is the compelling debut EP from wandering folksters Balthazar B and the
Beatitudes. The band name is taken from the JP Donleavy novel ‘The Beastly
Beatitudes of Balthazar B’ in which the shy, retiring protagonist spends parts of his life
between Paris and London. Donleavy’s subtle mixture of melancholic yet outrageously funny prose is a major source of inspiration for the band.
