Day 24 of LMS's Advent Calendar 2011
We have to admit to being really pleased with this bit of symmetry.
We started the whole advent relay race last year with a posthumous Grammatics download ("Cedars-Sinai" from the KRUPT EP on 1st December 2010).
So, it seemed quite neat to conclude this year's calendar with an offering from Owen Brinley's work in the wake of the Grammatics split. This is very exciting stuff but we'll hand over to Owen to explain:
'Black Out Boutique' is a new song written and recorded in my bedroom over the last few weeks. I suppose that would make it a bedroom production. Lins Wilson kindly agreed to play cello. James Kenosha very kindly agreed to master the song for me.
When asked if I had anything to submit for the LMS Advent Calendar I initially decided to dig up an unreleased Grammatics track and submit that. I was kind of semi-repulsed by the musical corpses I found lurking in my hard drive so I decided to write and record a little something especially.
I have been working on an album's worth of new material with James Kenosha sporadically over the last 12 months. The music we've recorded is a lot more uptempo and aggressive than this track. I hope to finish the album the album in early 2012. The project will have a name I can hide behind.

On that note, we'd also like to say very Happy Christmas from LMS!
