So, I’ll be giving a report of our UK tour very soon, but I thought I should at least post here that the EP we made especially for tour is available for purchase by everyone. You can either get it with a special jigsaw puzzle or just as a download. It’s got a cover (of The Softies), a new song (“This is Where I Should Be”), two remixes (by Watoo Watoo and Cris of The Royal Landscaping Society), and an instrumental version of “Wond’ring”. Hope you like it!
Crazy, but I don’t think I’ve mentioned on this blog yet that The Very Most will be touring the UK, with one show in Ireland, in July 2014, leading up to a show at the legendary Indietracks festival! Woo-hoo!
From Boise, it’ll just be me (Jeremy) going, where I’ll be joined by three folks from Glasgow (Chris Gillies on bass, John Ferguson on guitar, and Jo Bunyan on keyboards), Pablo Caballero from Valencia on drums, and Vinnie Ransome from England who will be sharing vocal duties with me. We’ll be touring with one of my favorite Scottish bands of recent years, Yakuri Cable, and it’s gonna rule. Here are the dates:
- July 12 – Dublin (solo acoustic) at the Pop Inn w/Mumblin’ Deaf Ro and TBD
- July 18 – Glasgow at The Glad Cafe w/TBD *
- July 19 – Nottingham at The Maze w/TBD *
- July 20 – Liverpool at Maguire’s Pizza Bar w/The Swapsies *
- July 21 – Bristol at Cafe Kino w/Lonely Tourist *
- July 22 – Swindon at The Vic w/The King in Mirrors *
- July 23 – London at Buffalo Bar w/Cosines *
- July 25 – 27 INDIETRACKS! (Allo Darlin’, Dean Wareham, Rocketship, The Popguns and tons more)
* w/Yakuri Cable
I absolutely cannot wait. It’s been a long-term goal of mine to tour the UK and the fact that we’re playing one of the greatest indiepop festivals in the world is the icing on the cake. We’re planning a tour-only release too, so I’ll reveal more details about that as the time gets closer.

Just a quick post to tell you a bit about the collaboration I’ve done recently with Gothenburg, Sweden’s Alpaca Sports. I played a bit of mandolin and cabasa on their superb new single “Just Like Johnny Marr” which you can view here:
I also did a remix of their song “Just For Fun” for their remix collection Belle’s Mixtape, which you can listen to right here:
Working with Andreas from Alpaca Sports has been an immense pleasure and an honor. Definitely get their new album.
Thanks so much to Chris Gillies of Yakuri Cable/The Very Most (UK)/Baffin Island for making this really beautiful video for the new song “Wond’ring”.
Here’s a little sampler of our EP that’s due out on March 29, complete with footage from the Oregon Coast and New York City.
Here’s a little video about how I made the song “About Forgetting”, which appears on our upcoming EP Things Too Obvious to Sing. I shred on tambourine in this one.
I played a little acoustic set on my favorite radio station, KRBX. Here’s a soundcloud of it:
