RIYL: Tunng, Laura Marling, Throws, Mike Lindsay
Label: Dead Ocean
Lump? Hold your horses partners, this band is a collaboration betweenÂ award-winning singer-songwriter Laura Marling andÂ Tunng’s Mike Lindsay, so think about them apples. There is a translucence green version at Secretly Canadian & Rough Trade, but Rough Trade also put out a translucent orange edition limited to 1000. Get the green vinylÂ at SC for 19.00 or fork over a little more and get a bonus CD with a few extra songs at Rough Trade. Somewhat of a bummer, but PledgeMusic had a signed art card available, yet its all sold out (There was one left on its own for 28!). anywho, Enjoy.
WriteupÂ from Secretly Canadian:
LUMP was born of good timing and predestined compatibility. It began one night in mid-June 2016, when Mike Lindsay â€“ founding member of Tunng and Throws, and a prolific, Mercury prize-winning producer â€“ was introduced to Grammy-nominated, Brit award-winning singer-songwriter Laura Marling after her show supporting Neil Young in London. On meeting, Lindsay and Marling discovered they had long been admirers of each otherâ€™s work.
Inspired by early-20th-century Surrealism and the absurdist poetry of Edward Lear and Ivor Cutler, she wanted to slice through the apparent emptiness of contemporary life. Her resulting creation is a bizarre but compelling narrative about the commodification of curated public personas, the mundane absurdity of individualism, and the lengths we go to escape our own meaninglessness.
Secretly Canadian Translucent Green Colored LP.
Rough Trade Exclusive: Translucent Orange Vinyl and Bonus CD.
Rough Trade exclusive with a bonus CD featuring 2 brand new extra songs and a remix of the track Hand Hold Hero by Wrangler (Stephen Malinder from Cabaret Voltaire).
