Old gits

In truth, I'm more engaged by Professor Scanner's compelling new Conversations with the Dead & his mesmerising iPhone Whisper than the new Githead - even after fellow Git Colin Newman's fine recent trans-generational WireTortoise collaboration.

But Landing's arrival is also a welcome excuse to revisit some classics of earlier Gittery. On form, this unlikely collision of talents sums each other's disparate parts into something distinctive & valuable - Newman's sardonic, knowing vocals freighted in a gliding post-postpunk...

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