"An arbitrary succession of more or less irritating sounds"

Woozy reflection

A woozy, reflective footnote to a recent post on Seaworthy & Pimmon: hacked out of a recent interview on ABC Radio's Triple J show (original here), Seaworthy revisits the meandering & remembering of the very fine 1897 album in a live performance that "isn't necessarily a track from the record, but draws on elements of that" - with "a couple of little bits & pieces of samples & stuff": 1897 Elements.

As 12k rightly says, some great music is coming out of Australia. Besides Seaworthy the label's slice of the action, encapsulated by the LMYE-hailed 3-way Live in Melbourne, stretches to the awesome Lawrence English, the pretty & potentially more substantial Solo Andata & the must-check-out Amplifier Machine. 

But with even a very partial sampling, that still leaves Pimmon, the late lamented Triosk & all of its offshoots & tributaries (Adrian Klumpes, 3ofmillions, Pivot, Laurence Pike, Roam the Hello Clouds, etc), & of course the mighty Necks (review of last week's Bristol game of two halves on its way) & their spin-offs, especially Pedal. Not forgetting occasional LMYE visitor Prince Charming... 

Important: LMYE only makes music available that artists/labels have chosen to share freely. Let us know if something here shouldn't be.
