I was unaware this was happening personally. I just noticed this on his blog:

He also had this to say about our site:

Seriously, your sentiments are awesome and make it so worthwhile to continue doing what I do. I really appreciate it and am happy that the music may have affected you as powerfully as it has affected me.

Tartar Lamb was my least favourite Driver output (which doesn't say much), but this will still be interesting..

^Amen!
I ordered Kayo Dot's Choirs Of The Eye last week... Can't wait for it to arrive!

Great to hear Toby likes PA () and that he's keeping up the brilliant work. A true genius.

Oh, man! You're in for a real treat! I'm a bit jealous of anyone who's about to hear COTE for the first time. Wink

^Sixty Metonamies is mainly a guitar and violin album with a bit of drums and keyboards to flesh out the sound. Closer to classical than anything else he's done and IMO better than his solo album.

Well I thought his solo album was terribly boring, so that's not a very high bar. ;-)

Sixty Metonymies is one of my favorites from Driver's compositions. I would put them in this order:

Choirs of the Eye
Dowsing Anemone With Copper Tongue
Bath
Part the Second
Sixty Metonymies
Leaving Your Body Map
Blue Lambency Downward
In the L... L... Library Loft
My Fruit Psychobells...

If we have similar tastes, I strongly urge you to explore the Lamb.

My guess would be that you wouldn't like Tartar Lamb then.

So apparently the plan is to get Greg Chandler from a British doom metal band called Esoteric to join Toby and Mia to perform vocals! This time there will likely be a featuring clarinetist too.
At this point it's unclear whether or not the new music will be released as an album, since Tartar Lamb isn't signed to any label. It will be performed live, though, but the duo needs financing if they are to record a second album.

I'm not sure... I actually think 60 Metonymies has more in common with Blue Lambency Downward than Driver's solo. To me ITL..L..LL is at heart experiments with soundscapes and the methods of producing these sounds. BLD and Metonymies are both classically composed pieces with a lot of experimentation. They both feel like a long suite, though BLD actually is seven smaller compositions.

What I'm trying to say is: 60 Metonymies feels like music... Driver's solo feels like something...
