Announces Live Album,
Mimesis – Live at the Round Chapel, Hackney
(pronounced Mim – Me – Sis)
Due 8th December from meilyrjones.com
Listen to ‘Passionate Friend (Live at the Roundchapel)’:
imitation, in particular:
imitative representation of the real world in art and literature.
You can hear the piano creaking, an accordion in a balcony, harpsichord in the distance, someone opening cans of beer, and false starts.
It was recorded on the night by Iwan Morgan who worked on ‘2013’ with Meilyr, and filmed by Malcolm Williams.
“It was really nice listening back, and hearing how cavernous it sounded, and nice making a record that feels completely live and not trying to make it too smooth, or changing anything later. It feels as it was.”
There will only be 300 copies of the LP released and will come with a video and digital download of the concert in full including tracks not available on the vinyl.” – Meilyr 2017
“One of the most original and refreshing things we’ve heard this year.” – Hype Machine
“Shifting from Dexys-style indie-soul to heart-rending balladry to shiny pop.” –The Guardian
““There are traces of Welsh peers Cate Le Bon and Euros Childs, but Jones has a broader palette: 30-piece orchestra, accordion, choir, field recordings et al… This is Meilyr’s time.” –MOJO – 4 Stars ****
