No Time Forever

by Uphill and Still

With a gritty, not quite folk vibe, No Time Forever draws upon themes from all aspects of a “vagabond life”, on and off the road.

A collection of attitudes towards money, adventure, and friendship, confronting the issues of rogue cats, and the unlikely places we can call home.

With and against the persistent pressures, and passing of time, this album was recorded by us, in our shanty studio, and mixed and mastered by Joe Lapinski, Wow! Studios.


Elkonomic Develephant

by Uphill and Still

Written on New Zealand's winding inclines, home-recorded alongside a dusty track in England, “Elkonomic Develephant" is Uphill and Still's debut E.P.
Being peddled on a pavement near you...

Released May 21, 2016

Mixed and Mastered by Neil Devereaux, Mojo Studios
