Kiran Leonard Reveals Twisting Eight Minute Track Legacy Of Neglect Featuring Let's Eat Grandma

Thursday, 18 October 2018 Written by Helen Payne

Kiran Leonard has revealed a new single from his upcoming album, 'Western Culture'.

Legacy Of Neglect is a song of many parts, twisting and contorting itself at every turn. Ending up at the eight minute mark, the tune bounces between touching acoustics and soft piano to more aggressive, anxious guitars in the middle sections, which turn the song into a fast-paced indie number.

With the addition of sustained, floating harmonies from Let's Eat Grandma, Leonard's smooth vocals contrast nicely and what sounds random and dissonant at first reveals itself to be a controlled and intriguing listen.

Western Culture is due on November 9, with previous cuts Unreflective Life and Paralysed Force having already dropped. Leonard will tour of the UK and Ireland later this month, kicking off in Oxford on October 20.

Photo: Rob Blackham Sometimes an album arrives from out of nowhere and knocks you off your feet. There’s something new, yet familiar, about its melodies, its heart-warming immediacy and the effortless chemistry that oozes from the bewitching songs within. We’re basically talking the musical equivalent of love at first sight, which is exactly what fans of bluesy rock ‘n’ roll and American roots music will doubtless feel after hearing Jawbone’s quietly magnificent self-titled bow.

Photo: Lera Pentelute Supergroup is a big, ugly label. It’s reductive, and it ramps up the pressure on what is always a new endeavour—even if the players are seasoned pros. Friction is naturally created by expectations rubbing up against the mechanics of making music in a fresh formation, often leading to overhyped records that feel like a tired exhalation of breath from their first note.

Mon 12 Nov 2018
A striking development in the past decade or so has been the extent to which people discover music through mood as opposed to genre. Streaming services have adapted to perceived consumer demand by releasing reams of playlists tailored to every emotion or context imaginable, from deeply depressed to “songs to sing to in the car”. This has its upsides and downsides for a band like Pijn.

Dolan conveyed ruminations on love, loss and hypocrisy through cryptic metaphors and sharp turns of phrase, complemented by fitful riffing without a backdrop.
Mick Jenkins - Pieces Of A Man (Album Review)
Tue 20 Nov 2018
Mick Jenkins was riding the crest of a wave when his breakout mixtape 'The Water[s]' dropped in the summer of 2014. Talented heads like Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa, Noname and Saba would all go on to emerge from the same bubbling Chicago hip-hop scene, but Jenkins had positioned himself in critics' minds as the moody and technically gifted older brother. He already appeared fully formed in an artistic sense, framing highly conceptual songwriting with jazz-influenced verses and a raspy vocal delivery.
