‘Mushroom‘ is the lead single from the forthcoming album ‘Lo-Fi Disgrace’ by LAURENCE AND THE SLAB BOYS.
Having sold his home in Glasgow to move to Berlin with his band the CINEMATICS several years ago, multi-instrumentalist Larry Reid was kind of left high ad dry when shortly after relocation the band collapsed without any real warning.
‘Lo-Fi Disgrace‘ is the response to losing the communion of his band and feeling suddenly alone in a foreign land. The single ‘Mushroom’ is moody and atmospheric, like a sort of slowed down, downbeat, dark-surf number that reminds me a little of Lloyd Cole and The Commotions.
Anyway – see what you think:
