Staying with cassette culture, Mark Templeton brings unseasonal warmth to Edmonton, Alberta with a typically dense, knotty live set to celebrate his very fine recent-ish Scotch Heart tape for Sweat Lodge Guru. Stream or download this richly satisfying 30-minute excursion across moods & tones, plus an LMYE hack (with permission, though probably not approval of its cack-handedness...) of two favourite passages (particularly that ratcheting zithery section), below.
More live Templeton too in the form of an extract from his contribution to Staalplaat's renowned Mort Aux Vaches series. Recorded in late 2008, it shares the Artery set's subtle density but sets it off with a sweeter, airy voice.
Finally, from the heartening news department: besides a gradually maturing collaboration with Ezekiel Honig, a new solo release is on the way - "I have been working on a new album that I started back in 2009. It's a slow process, but I am happy w/ the direction it's moving in. I look forward to sharing it w/ you all someday soon!"
Important: LMYE only makes music available that artists/labels have chosen to share freely. Let us know if something here shouldn't be.
