    We're doing things a bit differently this week and announcing our Postcard Club single on a Tuesday. Yesterday our good friends Joanna Gruesome announced their debut album which is due for release on Fortuna Pop and Slumberland (!!!) in the US. It was a big day for them which they totally deserved and we thought two JoGru related announcements in one day might be a bit much for some people. Alanna McArdle is Joanna Gruesome's most recent member and as well as singing vocals for them, she also produces solo work under the Ides moniker.

    Her first EP released on Reeks of Effort received plaudits from all round; and rightly so. Alanna seemed to effortlessly document tales of heartbreak weaved with despair. As a listener, hearing the EP in full is almost a therapeutic experience. The same can be said of her postcard single 'Prisms' - with an added fidelity that wasn't present on her earlier recordings, Alanna's softly sung lyrics become even more effecting. This is no truer than when she sings the haunting line "it was over before it began".

    You can catch Ides in August playing in Brighton, Bournemouth, Bristol and of course our all dayer in London on the 31st. You can find her on Facebook here -
