Padang Food Tigers

London duo Padang Food Tigers, aka Spencer Grady and Stephen Lewis, have recently released their fourth long-player, Wake Up, Mr Pancake, via Texan imprint Blue Hole Recordings.

Following previous prized releases on Northern Spy, Scissor Tail and Bathetic, plus gigs with Charalambides, Ashley Paul, Alex Ward and C Joynes, they continue to direct their instrumental focus on the subtle chicaneries of homestead and blood tie, glimpsed through an increasingly palimpsest reverie of guitar, dobro, field recordings and banjo, recollecting moods redolent of Virginia Astley, Scott Tuma and, most certainly, Bruce Langhorne’s The Hired Hand soundtrack.
