Out now: Meursault – Simple is Good
After a couple of years in the wilderness Meursault are back with a new EP called Simple is Good, available as of now from Song, by Toad Records on digital or as a CD in a variety of brightly coloured hand-printed sleeves.
We recorded this mostly live in The Happiness Hotel a month or so ago, so the whole turnaround has been really quick. It’s an interesting collection of songs, too, spanning their more lo-fi, atmospheric years, more straightforwardly acoustic numbers, the full-on rock band they were for a while (although that era doesn’t have a formal release to mark it) and stuff which points at a newer direction, such as the title track below. It may only be five (and a half) songs long, but there is a lot here.
The launch night for this is the Song, by Toad Records Christmas Party on Friday, for which there are one or two tickets still left, and keep an eye out for this coming February, when there will be a full, new Meursault album for you to stuff into your ears.meursault, supermoon
