"Jagjaguwar announce today that Wolf People will play their biggest London headline set to date at the Garage on Tuesday January 17. The quartet will then return to the studio to start work on the follow-up to 2010's much loved debut album Steeple.
In response to fan demand, Wolf People's early material collection Tidings - previously only available on vinyl and digital formats - will be given a CD release on January 23.
Collected from recordings made by Jack Sharp in Bedford between 2005 and 2007 (and mostly before the band as it exists now was formed), Tidings is wild with tape hiss, feedback and background noise - a fecund broth of sounds competing for the listener's attention. Stitched together in a style reminiscent of Faust or early Mothers Of Invention, the songs lay nestled in snatches of field recordings, winding tapes, squealing feedback, studio outtakes and the voices of dead relatives. The tunes themselves are full of hissing guitars, distorted blues harmonica, acid rock, mystical flutes and crackling tape, often based on updated versions of classic blues structures and half-remembered English folk songs.
Wolf People are Jack Sharp, Joe Hollick, Dan Davies and Tom Watt."

"Deftly weaving a path around such heavyweight markers as Cream, Pentangle, Fairport Convention and Can, Wolf People both pay respect to their English folk heritage and underline their riff-stacked, contemporary affiliations." - TIME OUT
"A UK version of White Denim." - NME
"Intelligent but wholly naturalistic psych rock that touches upon similar territory to The Heads, Diagonal and even Circulus." - METAL HAMMER
