annual general meeting record – volume 2…

We told you or should that be warned or perhaps threatened you, that we’d be back with further lone taxidermist groove, fear not their latest single is being prepped for later inclusion, for now though, they pop up on a rather essential cassette set being put out by the Anti Ghost Moon Ray folk who its been a while since we last mentioned. This tape release is aid of the excellent work being done by various charities through the nation and beyond, with all profits being donated accordingly, volume 1 gathered monies for the sterling work done by Médecins Sans Frontières.

Those of you preferring your listening space seduced in elegiac hymnal kisses might do well to hook up to ‘these lands’ by Anneka, a heavenly visitation softly swooned and adored the otherworldly embrace of cascading chorals while Nick Sutton’’s ‘prayer’ rounds out matters, as the title might initially suggest or give rise to hint, a celestial visitation is upon you bathing you in a brilliantine radiance as the slo-mo curvatures of the symphonic arcs softly arrest and serenade to provide a dream toned masterclass in compositional control and discipline. Lest we forget, that aforementioned Lone Taxidermist cut, ‘red kiss’ be its name, from what sounds initially like some orgasmic ritual emerges a most delightful sonic sore thumb whose ancestral reach nods to the Slits and the Au Pairs, yet whose creative crookedness and impishness finds its parental line much owing to …and the native hipsters and the lemon kittens….
