#61 Landshapes – In Limbo

Landshapes, the latest band to come pre-packed with the Bella Union seal of approval, began life as the fabulously monikered Lulu and the Lampshades, but changed their name after a typo on their billing caught their fancy. Figuring they were due an updated personality they went with it, and are now readying the launch of their debut album. ‘In Limbo’ is the first taste, showing off a spacious sound full of infectious rhythms. Enjoy this while you can, though. They’ve already warned us that the forthcoming single ‘Insomniacs Club’ “is cursed”. “Anyone who gets involved with it gets insomnia,” they say. “The guy making the video hasn’t slept for days, true story.”
