Mission Bells by The Proper Ornaments comes a mere 9 months after their last long-player 6 Lenins. Musically they are tweaking their Velvet Underground-influenced formula by adding a Moog and electronics to their sound. The band are led by James Hoare of Veronica Falls and Ultimate Painting. Mission Bells is their 5th album.

I don’t know about you but I’ve found that my listening preferences in this year of Covid have definitely focused on simplicity.
Write some great songs with interesting lyrics, play them really well, keep a slightly retro sheen- preferably psychedelic, don’t under any circumstances over produce or over elaborate and bang them out - minimum 12 songs to an album.
Hey presto you’ve hit it right out of the ballpark. 2019’s '6 Lenins' was pretty good, 2020’s 'Mission Bells' is even better and the Proper Ornaments are on a hot streak. Catch them while you can.
