"An arbitrary succession of more or less irritating sounds"

Clearly, any chance to hear new music from Richard Skelton should be taken (which reminds me: must get that Machinefabriek collab as a matter of urgency...). So, stream six minutes of keening, tremulous "fragments" from a new, seemingly more orchestral - or lushly stringed, at least - 2-part release in his Clouwbeck guise on Sustain-Release below.

In all probability, no Mercury Prize will ever acknowledge Skelton's profound, unclassifiable work (the Uranus, sure, but not the gruesome festival of self-congratulatory necrophilia with the pretension of passing itself of as a showcase for the best of British new music).

No matter. That's just 'the industry'. He is the best of British music - not alone at the peak, of course, but certainly unique & incredibly special.

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

hey - stumbled across this on twitter...Never heard him before and it's powerful stuff. The Mercuries seem to be getting pretty random and to be honest, I can't even begin to imagine the process they go through to come up with this list of 12. I've briefly outlined thoughts on each here: http://bit.ly/9nprLq, feel free to add your thoughts if you wanted to spread the word!
