LUMP is a collaboration between Laura Marling and Mike Lindsay, the founding member of Tunng and Throws. Their self-titled album will be released on 1st June via Dead Oceans.
The record is a heady blend of wonked-out guitars, Moog synths and pattering drums, set against droning, coiling clouds of flutes and voices.
The duo have shared the first track from the record. A somewhat cynical examination of the new age, Curse Of The Contemporary has a steady, pulsing bassline and divines a road snaking off towards the horizon, which gives a sense of gazing out of a car window as mountains and palm trees rush by.
Watch the excellent video below and the single will also be available for Record Store Day on hyper-limited 12” translucent green vinyl.
