Snow-bound and still impacted by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, the people of Tohoku wait eagerly for that springtime symbol of hope and life: the blossoming of cherry trees. Northern Japan boasts many varieties of cherry trees and some very beloved ones – a tree strong enough to grow through a boulder and another whose lineage stretches for a thousand years. Some of these trees are cared for by generations of the same families, people who know each bud on their trees and the best places to view the cherry blossoms.

A sunburst of imaginative, melodic indie that refuses to stay still. From “Charlemagne”’s bombastic synths to the giddy dancefloor pomp of “Texia”, via singer Tom Ogden drawing on the “stately homes of England” for “Blown Rose”, the Stockport five-piece’s debut is a dazzlingly confident beast. Like contemporaries The 1975, Blossoms appreciate the value of a deeply catchy pop hook. Muddled with their ‘70s psych-rock sensibilities, they’ve hatched quite the potent sound.

Edna marries Texan Sam Gladney, operator of a wheat mill. Edna discovers by chance how the law treats children who are without parents and decides to do something about it.

Eventually Edna leads a fight in the Texas legislature to remove the stigma of illegitimacy from birth records in that state, while continuing to be an advocate for homeless children.
