Listening Post

The Proper Ornaments can even make a song about a bridge by a tunnel tuneful

It's the second song they've shared from their second LP 'Foxhole'

The Proper Ornaments work fast.

After their debut album ‘Wooden Head’ was released in 2014, in between their other ventures James Hoare from Veronica Falls and Ultimate Painting and Max Claps from Toy got back in a room together. It was only last summer that they started work on their forthcoming second album ‘Foxhole’. It’s now ready for release later this month on Tough Love.

‘Bridge By A Tunnel’ is the latest track to be shared from it. It’s quite lovely. Listen below:

The Proper Ornaments are heading out on tour later this month. They’ll appear at the following places:

Leeds, Brudenell Social Club – 22 January
Glasgow, Mono – 23
Birmingham, Hare & Hounds – 24
Brighton, Joker – 25
London, Moth Club – 26

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support our running costs (the printing and distribution fees, the podcast and production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for works out at £3 per month for UK subscribers, charged yearly.

If that seems like a bit of a punt, you can pay-as-you-go for £4 per month and cancel any time you like. European and world plans are available too, at the lowest rate we can afford.

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
