Major news! Monkey Records from Berlin (originally New Zealand) will be releasing Robin Pahlman’s self-titled debut EP next Friday 15th of November. Robin Pahlman is a highly talented Finnish indie folk singer-songwriter who has been featured on this site several times and I’m thrilled that there’s finally an official release available. Monkey Records deserve one of One Chord to Another’s imaginary culture awards for such a release. They also gave me an opportunity to stream the forthcoming EP in advance. So if you can’t wait until Friday, hit that play button below and listen to some magnificent folk songs (Stream link will disappear from this post within a week or two). In Finland, the new EP will be easily available at least through the great Turku-based record store 8raita.

Robin Pahlman & Ghost Town will also celebrate the new release by touring in central Europe during November. No Finnish dates this time around, because Robin is living in Vienna these days and it doesn’t make financially sense to travel back so soon after their august Finnish tour. Here are the tour dates that I picked up from Robin’s Facebook.
Nov 15 EP Release Show @ Down Under, Vienna, Austria
Nov 16 Black Horse Inn Wels, Austria
Nov 18 Krone, Darmstadt, Germany
Nov 19 POP IN,Paris, France
Nov 20 Le Sombrero Café, Amiens, France

And one more thing. Here’s the fairly new music video for the lead track of the new EP Miss Lonelyhearts.
