Last spring we stumbled on to the music of Londoner, Harry Granger Howell, AKA Lonely Galaxy and his debut release EP1. That offering was filled with devastating bedroom pop including the 7 minute church organ ridden, Have A Heart ,which we found to be completely depressing. We also count it as one of our favorite tracks of 2010. Howell's Lonely Galaxy have returned with aptly titled EP2 to close out the year with another dose of lovesick gloom over sparse arrangements. Check out a track off the forthcoming EP and the Porcelain Raft produced video for Bible Truth Depot above. It's a slow builder that finds Howell employing chiming guitars and organs with a chorus that we haven't been able to get out of our skulls all morning.
Transparent will release EP2 on December 2nd.
