Cheek Mountain Thief releases new single Showdown through Full Time Hobby. Cheek Mountain Thief is Mike Lindsay (also of Tunng), whose love affair with Iceland, and an Icelandic girl called Harpa, caused him to travel to the fishing town of Husavik and record an album with the help of a host of local musicians including producer Sindri, electronic artist Mugison and teenage accordion player Asta. Showdown is the second single to be taken from the eponymous debut album (4*’s Q Magazine) and follows on from previous single Cheek Mountain, which won support from 6Music’s Lauren Laverne, Steve Lamacq, Marc Riley, Gideon Coe, Tom Ravenscroft and XFM’s John Kennedy amongst others.
