"An arbitrary succession of more or less irritating sounds"

Trumpton clock

Three deep responses from Billy Gomberg, Eleh & Anne Guthrie to last week's Trumpageddon.  

Eleh's is "offered as a point of focus; a means of finding temporary solace from social & political turmoil", while the fraufraulein pair similarly "found solace in creating a musical diary of sorts in this immediate moment of grief."

The soothing, swelling 11.9.16 forms part of a forthcoming LP-only series, Home Age. The darker, more restless fraufraulein pieces - Gomberg's sonorously clanking, Guthrie's more anxious & scattered despite its lovely horn - are the core of 7C, a fundraiser for EarthJustice, NAACP & NARAL. 

Self-released today, it also includes a duo improvisation & a long field recording from marches & protests in New York. "The work is raw and immediate, not a polished album that we have refined over months, but we feel that it is important to start contributing to dialogues & organizations, & communicating with those who listen about where we are in this process. Right now, we are at the beginning."

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