Released on Withdrawn records

We have produced one CD and three EP’s on our own label Withdrawn records. The CD contains ten songs and the EPs four songs each. Every EP contains three of our own songs and one cover of a song we particularly love.

“Based on a True Story” – CD

cd_01It feels like chapter one in the history of Us & Them is finished with this our first album. It contains six songs from our previous eps and four new ones. Three of the new songs show a brighter side to us, more pop than anything else we’ve made so far.
“A new life” on the other hand has the for Us & Them common baroque folk sound.

Sold out !

“Man o’ Sand to Girl o’ Sea” – EP

ep_03On our third EP it feels like we’ve managed to define more clearly what Us & Them really stands for. A mixture of pure folk music in “Count the Days”, the intima Americana in “What Am I Doing Here?”, acid folk with dark passages in “Oblivion” and, finally, the clean pop sound of ’’Another View of Us’’. On the other hand this doesn’t mean we won’t sound different the next time around.

The cover song we’ve chosen this time is ’’What Am I Doing Here?’’ by Chuck and Mary Perrin. It was first released as a bonus track on rev-ola’s (www.revola.co.uk) re-release of Chuck and Mary Perrins’ second album ’’Life’s a Stream’’. Sold out !

“Seagulls” – EP

ep_02This, our second EP, has a lighter Pop Music touch to it than its predecessor. The songs are more arranged and there are also some cautious rhythms here and there. The last song on the other hand, “The Great Valerio”, is more simply arranged and the slight melancholic atmosphere moves us back to the stillness of “Canning Oak”. ”The Great Valerio” is the cover song on this EP. The original was written by one of our musical heroes, Richard Thompson, and was initially released on Richard and Linda Thompson’s first album together, ’’I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight’’. Sold out !

“Canning Oak” – EP

ep_01This is our first EP, and the first four songs ever recorded, which means it’s very dear to us. The cover song on this album is ”Another Day’’ by the headstrong Englishman Roy Harper and you’ll find it on his fourth album from 1970, ’’Flat Baroque and Berserk’’. The song has a special meaning to us and has been our favorite for a long time. Sold out !
