New Music - Larsen B

Again a new lp bought on the back of a sample on the monthly Word Cd. They are a trio from the home counties named after an ice shelf. They remind me a bit of the early lps by Aztec Camera and Prefab Sprout, an obsession with melody a hint of the rustic, tunes to hum along to , avoiding slavery to the verse chorus verse chorus middle eight chorus structure. The music matches the stunning cover, it is rich and layered, ambitious but still a little rough round the edges

You can hear more tunes at their website here and you can buy the lp Musketeer here

If you have fallen in love with Stornoway this year then maybe you could have a fling with Larsen B
