Spottiswoode & His Enemies: raising funds for new album "English Dream"

One of New York finest bands, Spottiswoode & His Enemies, is raising money to cover the expenses for recording their new album English Dream. They need $ 30,000 to complete this record of Big Apple Englishness ...

What do you get when an Englishman with a New York band makes a record about England in New York? A whole new genre!

English Dream will be the 6th record of Spottiswoode & His Enemies’ 15-year career. So far we’ve made a rock record, a gospel record, a Euro-cabaret record, an Americana record and most recently, Wild Goosechase Expedition, a record that was so hard to categorize that it won the Vox Populi Independent Music Award for Best Eclectic Release of 2011.

Yes, you’ve heard it here first. Like Americana, Anglicana is an organic form that combines doses of folk and electric music. However, unlike Americana, Anglicana’s themes are English! English songs performed by an American band. It also helps that Spottiswoode’s father became an Anglican minister when his youngest child was a teenager. (No, it’s not a religious record!) Some of the 14 songs on English Dream evoke the haunting English countryside. Others touch on Spottiswoode’s childhood in London. All reflect the bandleader’s distinct lyrical and storytelling style.

English Dream will be a new form of music entirely: ANGLICANA!
