• lump Lump (6-track CD, £8.25)

    label: Dead Oceans

    LUMP were born of good timing and predestined compatibility. It began one night in mid-June 2016, when Mike Lindsay - founding member of Tunng and Throws and a prolific, Mercury Prize-winning producer - was introduced to Grammy-nominated, Brit Award-winning singer songwriter Laura Marling after her show supporting Neil Young in London.  A heady blend of wonked-out guitars, Moog synths and pattering drums, set against droning, coiling clouds of flutes and voices. Marling’s lyrics slice through the apparent emptiness of contemporary life. Her resulting creation is a bizarre but compelling narrative about the commodification of curated public personas, the mundane absurdity of individualism and the lengths we go to escape our own meaninglessness.
