"An arbitrary succession of more or less irritating sounds"

Between 11 & 4

Another week, another Australian heavyweight... If Ben Frost knocks a release out next week, I'll have to dust off the old London buses quip. 

Even without that unexpected treat, however (new Frost, not old quip), the arrival of Lawrence English's Lonely Women's Club is a long-awaited highlight of LMYE's year that fully merits its place in our anticipatory Best of 2013 from the start of the year. Surfacing on the knotty, shifty heels of Chris Abrahams's Memory Night (from English's Room40, while LWC is on Important), it is as 
single-minded in its "gently toasted" excavation of noctural tone as MN is magpie-like in its shuffling of soundscapes...   

"The room around it is filled with a dusty ash; smoke in haze like proportions. Eyes are blood shot, sunken below the rim of a glass. The organ's speakers cough vibrations into the room, smoke plumes spinning and spiralling into dissipation. No one speaks though the room is crowded, there is nothing to say and no one cares to hear it. Is there ever a time for last drinks? At the Lonely Women's Club it's an undecided question."

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