With a touring schedule that keeps them on the road seemingly more than it gives them time at home, Lymbyc Systym have miraculously completed their second full-length album, entitled Shutter Release.
With John Congleton (Modest Mouse, Explosions In The Sky) shaping the mixdowns, instrumentation has become broader, arrangements more grandiose, and melodies more focused – resulting in a sublime second album. While the stacked keys and busy drums that defined their previous outing still create the foundation of much of Shutter Release, the Brothers Bell have added acoustic and electric guitars, majestic brass and disembodied vocals to their arsenal.
LP is pressed on coloured virgin vinyl and comes in a matt-finsh jacket with download code for 320 kbps MP3 copy of the album. Each copy is hand-numbered.
