"An arbitrary succession of more or less irritating sounds"

End of an ear

Duty & provincial exile dictate LMYE missing both an enticing trip on the Otobahn tomorrow night, regrettably, but also an exceptional event further north. Still, if we can't be at Stirling's Le Weekend, we can at least reconstitute some part of the eclectic, electric feast (Bill Wells & Stefan Schneider, Tarwater, Murcof & Francesco Tristano, Ben Frost, Faust & more) it unleashes tonight...

"All things must pass. The thirteenth Le Weekend will be an occasion of high drama and mighty celebrations. For thirteen years the festival has brought a mind boggling array of musical mayhem to Stirling and this year its last breath will be drawn on Sunday night. But like most beasts of bewildering spirit it is hoped that what Le Weekend started all these years ago will transmogrify into something new in the years ahead. Like the music that the festival has championed the idea of stasis, of not moving, is alien to the festival’s ethos, so to bring the festival to a conclusion now and on a high point seems the right thing to do.

Considering the significance of the year we have pushed the boat out to try and capture the essence of Le Weekend..."

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