"An arbitrary succession of more or less irritating sounds"

Antipodean touchdown

Gig of the year in a city with a conspicuous, even woeful lack of live action isn't the biggest claim, granted. Still, the improbable news that the great Room40's 10th anniversary tour will be swinging close by the drastically less well endowed of LMYE's two home towns - & at a venue as sympathetic as Arnolfini - couldn't be more cheering. Hope to see you there on November 6...

The outstanding line-up comprises Grouper, label head Lawrence English, Rafael Anton Irisarri (who's also Ghostly's The Sight Below, of course - more to follow on his other guise soon) & Andrea Belfi. As the streams & videos below indicate, they operate across Room40's characteristically rich, undogmatic array of tones - by turns mournful & playful, crepuscular & sunlit, veiled & exposed.

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