Following a live album preview - a sold-out live three night residency at London’s Vortex in October - the lead single was “An Angel With No Halo” in December; this stirring slice of noir-ish psychedelic folk epitomised the truly unique flavour of the record, gaining early support from Huey Morgan, John Kennedy, Jamie Cullum, DJ Mag and Potholes In My Blog; and a stunning Prince Fatty Dub remix saw the revered Hollie Cook producer weaving the scintillating track into a pulsating haze. Continuing to build the buzz, a series of international album exclusives recently aired on BBC Radio 2 (UK), FIP (France), Radio Eins (Germany) and KCRW (US), unveiling more tracks to great acclaim.
The near future brings a free download of album opener “What Do You Know” (w/c 20th January, details TBA) plus confirmed appearances including an XFM session and a full band set at Tru Thoughts’ 15th Birthday @ Koko (22nd Feb).
In addition to his own studio albums and esoteric side-projects (the most recent of which, Nostalgia 77 and the Monster, led to heavy 6Music play from Stuart Maconie, and a live session for Cerys Matthews), Lamdin is constantly in demand as a producer and engineer. 2013 saw him lending his production talents to Valerie June, Teotima, Lizbet Sempa, Jason Yarde, Gail Brand, Robert Stillman and Brass Mask; as well as a range of work with Jamie Cullum, a relationship that has evolved from the latter’s long time admiration and support for Nostalgia 77 on his BBC Radio 2 show. Having produced two tracks on 'Momentum' (Island),Cullum’s current crossover LP featuring Roots Manuva, Lamdin has also recorded a complete album with the star, set for release this year.
