ORGAN THING: The glow of ALPENGLOW, the lark of LARK and some bleeding songs and some car parking…

ORGAN THING OF THE DAY? Well after all the shouting yesterday with Mama, we shall bask in the warmth on new music from Alpenglow today with a track from the forthcoming EP Chapel (out September 2014).

Hang on, LARK have an album out this week, something about a new personality and a complicated phase of history

.

Lark, in their own words, are “an independent London based band founded by Karl Bielik, a nonconformist and often idiosyncratic songwriter, frontman and artist.  A blend of heavy basslines, raucous sounds and turbulent lyricism, paint a volatile picture of the landscape the band inhabits. Romantic, dissonant, feverish and alive, Lark is an unsound sound.
Lark have been remixed by Andrew Weatherall, Brendan Lynch, Erol Alkan and Green Gartside”.  You don’t need the words though, you got the new album up there ready to do the talking…
