Ivan The Tolerable has traditionally been a thoroughly singular DIY project for Teesside musician Oli Heffernan. In recent years we've seen a gradual shift towards a fuller, more refined sound, getting friends on board to provide instrumentation and also relinquishing some production and mixing duties. Last year's Autodidact and Le Monde Inverse are a million miles away from the early tapes and EPs, for example.

Newcastle three piece Waves of Dread have been releasing music in dribs and drabs over the past year, quietly building a mini-buzz amongst those who know where to look. This is their latest offering, a lovely four minute melodic dirge to keep put us on until their next full release.

You can listen to "The Make-Believe" in all the usual places (or just press play below).

Here's the latest sneak peak from Ivan The Tolerable's forthcoming mega-double-album Rations, this one under the guiseĀ Ivan The Tolerable & The Elastic Band. Ivan The Tolerable is the long running recording alias of Middlesbrough's Oli Heffernan and the album sees the project expanded to a full band for the very first time (hopefully with live dates too).
