A Great Big Pile of Leaves Share B-Side “Learning Curves”

The underrated indie rockers in A Great Big Pile of Leaves are about to be headlining a beast of a tour for September. Their label, Topshelf Records, has put the band together with label-mates Field Mouse, Prawn and Diamond Youth; one sick lineup.
