A selection of tour dates for April in the Czech Republic and Slovakia have been finalised.
Rumours are that there will be further dates added to this list and probably some for Poland in the summer.
No news yet of any further afield so far for 2015.

Leporelo On UK iTunes...A New Perspective...

In my first post, (Yay!) I thought I'd say hello to all the followers of EFUK, and say I'm really really excited to dive in and contribute, and thank you to everyone at EFUK for this!

One of the interesting things that music downloads have done to the world of music is that it has allowed music from all around the world to become easier to find, although it may lack the physical presence and quality of a CD, it still means that the music can be heard. In the last few years for me finding Polish/Czech music has been getting easier - but it seems it's not well known yet!

So, although for some reason finding Ewa's actual CDs here in the UK isn't that easy, finding her music is actually quite simple these days. At least, on iTunes it can be bought quite easily and simply - which is rather nice as it is way more cost effective than the worry and cost of shipping a CD hundreds of miles! I thought I'd post the link for Leporelo below, so that for those that don't know it is available on iTunes/don't have it yet to get it right away, and post just a few of my thoughts about Leporelo/(w)Inna.

I bought (W)Inna the second I could get it, I was so excited to get it, and I very much like it, it's still Ewa but a more 'modern' vibe to it, and still sounding pop. I listened to this so much! Then enter 'Leporelo', when I first heard it, and this new version of it, I was so pleased as it sounded much more refined, more pop, along with (imo) a music video that felt more like Ewa, it had a better mix/feel. 'Tajna Misja'/'Z Nalezu a Kras' for example, the latter I've found I've played more, weird but true.

This can be said for the majority of the album too - however, one that the opposite can be said about is 'Z Napisami' (my personal favourite on (w)Inna) with a stunning hook - is really brought out on (w)Inna. Though, I never have understood the need for the dubstep-esq breakdowns! I have always seen Ewa as someone who does it for the music, fans and songs not to just sell records like so many today. The one thing that comes through is that Ewa looks to be having fun with it, but I'm hoping the roots are still there, real instruments and songs can still be a part in future albums too.

I may be a little bias, however for any Ewa fan, both these albums are worth getting however you can, while I prefer physical media, sometimes having it right away (and being affordable) is important for those "must haves". It's great that the two albums are done to cater for both markets. The links are below for the UK iTunes for those that didn't know they were available on there, I am aware of those who didn't know music from other territories was available on the UK iTunes, so, here it is. If anyone needs the links for any other of the online retailers with the albums available please let us know and we'll get them is available on Amazon MP3 UK too.

Anyway, I digress. Not all my posts will be long but I thought I'd get things started with something like this. I hope you like what is to come.

EFUK would like to welcome Paul Murray as a new contributor here.
Paul is a 29 old sound/studio engineer and groundsman from Newcastle upon Tyne in England.
He's been a fan of Ewa since first hearing La La Laj.
He's a big music fan generally but prefers rock/pop. He's also an audio and movie buff as well as a multi instrumentalist.
We all wish Paul every happiness with us and hope that his stay is a long one.
On a personal level, it's great that we now have someone else from the UK and hope that Paul's input can help to spread the word further across the UK and beyond.

I have a confession to make.
I'm confused (although i confuse easily).
It seems to me that Ewa was several places at once on New Years Eve?
I've tried to sort out all the different appearances she made on the day and have admitted defeat.
I've really not much of an idea of which performances where live or which were pre recorded. There's just so many of them.  It also seems that as soon as footage is uploaded to Youtube it is being taken down again by one or another of the broadcasting stations in both Poland and the Czech Republic.

Anyway, after that pathetic excuse here's Leporelo from somewhere in the Cze.
There's lots more out there but the point of linking all the performances to EFUK only to have them taken down minutes afterwards defeats the purpose somewhat.

I also don't have much of an idea where everything was recorded.
So there you have it.
EFUK...where the latest news is usually wrong and never on time.
Roll on 2015 for more of the same :-)
