Happy new year to everyone from LNTV! We're releasing one more single from The End of the Measured Mile, before heading back to the studio to record some brand new songs. The single in question is Happy Birthday Adrienne, which will be available from the usual download stores from 20th January (we'll have links on here nearer the date). In the meantime, here's the artwork:

Just spotted the absolutely fantastic review of The End of the Measured Mile in the latest edition of Vibrations magazine:
"If you like your music full of bluster, noise and bravado, you will hate this album. If, on the other hand, you appreciate expertly written songs full of wit, insight and performed in a quietly confident manner, then this is an album you're guaranteed to get a great deal out of. Spencer Bayles seemed to have knocked Last Night's TV on the head back in 2010 after that year's exceptional Everyone Here Was A Stranger album, and although he's been far from idle in the interim (producing no less than four albums as part of The Housekeeping Society), it's good to have him and them back.
"The whole thing kicks off rather appropriately with a trombone duo fanfare at the start of '12th June' which sets the loose theme of time passing that permeates the whole album. The sparse acoustic guitar and hushed vocals of that song sets the general tone of unhurried contemplation that is (was) a feature of LNTV albums. Also present and correct is that indefinable thing that attracts you back to Bayles's seemingly insubstantial and ephemeral songs only to discover after another three or four plays that what you have is another collection of superb songs. In particular; 'Someone Else Can Tend the Weeds' has an agreeably boisterous rolling rhythm, and a chorus that ends with a line seemingly suspended in mid-air; the same attention to detail is in the skilled orchestrations that lift 'Somewhere Else Not Here'; and, best of all, the interaction of the melody and music on 'Syllables' is just gorgeous.
"Quietly brilliant." - Steve Walsh

Just found out Steve Lamacq played '12th June' on his Radio 2 show! No longer available on Listen Again, but the track list for the show is here. He described it as a 'deft little single', which is good enough for us!
