Here on the Outside

We were delighted to receive another mix from our contributor George Lawrence-Brown, a discerning fellow with access to an apparently bottomless well of rare doo-wop tapes and peculiar field recordings. This is a post-NYE tale of isolation, expressed through dust-kicking prarie laments, rook conferences and elegiacal country. Christmas is well and truly over.

Be sure to check out George’s previous concept mix, the brilliantly immersive Door to the River.
