LISTEN: PD Liddle - 'You Shouldn't Have Called'

Peter Liddle (of Dry The River fame) has frankly one of the most beautiful, delicate voices I've  ever heard. The band are one of my favourites and the first that I caught live in my first year of University, first at an acoustic instore gig at Truck Store and then at O2 Academy Oxford just a couple of minutes down the road, straight after. They were joined by Gengahr and Pale Seas, and the evening stayed with me for a long time - the band and their two records mean a lot to me.

Like many others I was immensely gutted to hear of the band's separation a couple of years ago but this week came some of the best musical news I've heard in a while. Under the name PD Liddle, Peter has recorded a solo record (with help from some DtR friends) entitled Casual Labour, due for release later in the year via Xtra Mile Recordings. The first tune is the beautiful You Shouldn't Have Called, which made me tear up a little in the staff room at work on first listen. How good is it to have Peter back, and how beautiful are those strings? I can't wait to hear more from the record based on this first offering!

PD Liddle launches this new single and premieres plenty of new ones with a show at the wonderful OMEARA in London, with a band of familiar faces, on 13th April. Tickets on sale here from 23rd March.
