Of course Memory Drawings are sad. Consisting at their core of Richard Adams (from the ever-erstwhile post-rock band Hood and the downbeat Declining Winter), dulcimer player Joel Harrison and violinist Sarah Kemp, plus friends of a bygone era of dour rock music, the group make music for arthouse movies to get a little more sepia-toned to. Creating perpetual motion out of an autumn afternoon, their immensely rhythmic music is a sympathetic friend for your down days, an intimate instrumental music last heard from groups like Rachel's. Treasure it.
When they get the chance to hop across their individual continents, Memory Drawings thread together vulnerable records of never-climaxing post-rock. The Nearest Exit was a perfect example of the other-worldly sound they create, Harrison's hammered dulcimer offering an estranged timbre while also strengthening their rhythmic propulsions. Through this, the band gain a sort of environmental tension, their music containing the bustle of urban sprawl while hiding away from it in a pastoral rural hub. Released on Public House Recordings, their new LP Music For Another Loss offered more of the same heartbreak, the trio creating an anonymous soundtrack for you to supplant your woe onto. Memory Drawings make that kind of music: evocative but ambiguous, it is yours for the experiencing.

Northern Exchange were a short-lived duo, operating from either side of the Pennines. They only put together one EP in their time, with three short tracks, and here it is. The Loveliest Lanes We Knew is a sweet set of songs, made with minimal means and (apparently) a deep love of Young Marble Giants. A ...view item
