"An arbitrary succession of more or less irritating sounds"

Half-crazed Caradog

Exclusive: TVO deploys that rapacious magpie ear to channel Susan Cooper into a suitably brooding & vast - you might even say kosmische, given its krautish tinge - Celtic landscape. The Brenin Llwyd version of his Grey King, both part of a newly revealed Dark Is Rising bonus package that streams in full below, improbably but persuasively blends ambient billow, dub techno vamps, pads & trills, & metallic abrasion (could've used a bit more of that, in truth) with Gottsching pings & Popol swells. Result: a 13-1/2 minute epic of deferred gratification, a misty roundabout ascent through melting, blurring peaks...

Ruaridh isn't only polishing his back catalogue, though. Lately his Broken20-ness has expanded his already gargantuan mnml ssgs mix with a frisky pair of edits originally slipped in among the Steve Reich/Oren Ambarchi/Caretaker/Coil riches (tracklist).

Meanwhile, B20's exemplary podcast series is up to 15 after recent instalments from NAEKED, Dextro, Kone-R & Smear.

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