Ltd Pressing - Heavy Black Vinyl. 350gsm Card Outer Sleeve
Record/Vinyl + Digital Album
THE LEFT OUTSIDES are Mark Nicholas and Alison Cotton, a husband and wife duo based in Walthamstow, London, whose atmospheric, hypnotic songs echo Nico's icy European folk, pastoral psychedelia and chilly English fields at dawn. Mark and Alison celebrate the power of the song. With this Borley Rectory release, we celebrate the songwriters, captured in the intimate setting of The Betsey Trotwood, Clerkenwell.
THE LEFT OUTSIDES were invited by psychedelic troubadour Robyn Hitchcock to be his opening act for a two-night stand in October 2018 at the legendary venue. 'A PLACE TO HIDE' is a soundboard recording of the first night - six songs; an exquisitely curated mix of self-penned compositions, traditional ballads and the uplifting melancholy of The 13th Floor Elevators. The instrumentation was minimal; the impact maximal.
See the candles flickering in your mind's eye. Watch the shadows play. Pull up a chair. There's nobody else in this room. It's just you. You and the musicians. Breathe deeply and listen to THE LEFT OUTSIDES. They have songs to sing and atmospheres to conjure in the twilight. It's yesternow and you have company.
'A Place To Hide' presents the listener with a chance to dream. Originally released via Borley Rectory it is now available via Cardinal Fuzz (Europe) and Feeding Tube Records (N.America) on Heavy Weight Black Vinyl and presented in a 350gsm Card outer sleeve.

Their best album so far; perhaps Easterfaust is as good. These guys always change a bit but after all these years you recognize their style. The three pieces fit well together and make a nice album structure. peter1328
