Newsies and Aphra

If you can’t get to Broadway, maybe Broadway will come to you. That’s what happened last weekend when the film recording of “Newsies” hit cinemas in the UK. Ok, so it’s not quite the same as visiting the theatre, but with the Newsies tour of the US a distant memory, and no plans to bring it to the West End (that I know of) the film is as close as I’m likely to get for a while.

To see why I rave about the energy and excitement of the show, here’s a clip from the movie trailer, then maybe get tickets to catch it at your local cinema:

Any brand-new label would be excited by their first release. Newbies Inherent Sounds have every right to be proud to kick off their roster with Sadness Is A Gesture from Aphra, the electropop alter-ego of Philadelphia’s Rebecca Waychunas. Challenging and melancholy, this is not an easy collection to hear, but a fascinating album to listen to. Check out a review here and watch the video for opening track Geranimo below:
