Yesss, Lionel Williams is back with more celestial psych pop to expand your mind and soothe your soul!

The Emerald Isle is the LA-based artist’s latest project, and is at core classic Vinyl Williams, adding his close friend and former VW contributor Craig Murray on vocals.  Murray’s range really works well in symbiosis with Lionel’s lush expression, and to me underlines the diversity in the arrangements in a most welcome way!  It clearly shines through that these 2 cats share common history, and the result of  this joint seems to be a most inspired album.

Check out the available tracks underneath and grab some limited vinyl from Vinyl Williams’ BC for the US (Buy Now-Button below), or for EU direct from the label Requiem Pour Un Twister THROUGH HERE

PS! More Cloudy Sky edition added, grab while still available!

The Details

The Emerald Isle is the new groop by Vinyl Williams & his lifetime confidant Craig Murray. Born out of one of LA's longest lasting underground communities, the two wrote & recorded their debut album at Non Plus Ultra. Although it usually functions as a live venue and art studio, Williams has his recording studio at NPU, filled with strange old church boards, 70s Italian synths, and old German tape echos. Their sound naturally formed as an expression of their two personalities – a jangly pop roller coaster of hyperactive fun times!

A new song will be released every Friday until April 23! Due to manufacturing delays, the vinyl records will be shipped out by June / July.
