Les Saules Pleureurs “Are You Loathsome Tonight” – Listen

Les Saules Pleureurs are not as French as they might sound – as they are Robert Paul (Severed Limb) on vocals and guitar, and Sophie Loyer (Urban Voodoo Machine) on violin.  Their approach is organic vinyl – this song, art of a double-A side limited edition vinyl only release (downloads are available) was recorded straight to quarter inch tape by Marco Nelson (Paul Weller, Primal Scream) at his all-analogue studio in Brixton. ‘Are You Loathsome Tonight’ has that original country feel to it – one-take, played live, no overdubs.  Sounds great.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
