Sounds Good To Me - Thea Gilmore
Our next LCM Featured artist is a very firm favourite here at LCM HQ and one of the original inspirations for our Group. Thea Gilmore is releasing her excellent highly anticipated new album 'The Counterweight' on June 2nd supported by a full UK tour with a 7 piece band. The London date is at the amazing Union Chapel on 1st June. Our LCM #TrackOfTheDay is the first single the wonderful and toe tapping 'Sounds Good To Me'. We love the string arrangements :) The song also just received its first airplay this morning on Radio 2. https://youtu.be/yT2JD7T8IU0
The waiting is almost over - Thea's first album of new material in 4 years is released on June 2nd and is available to pre-order now.
"The Counterweight" will be available through Cooking Vinyl Records on CD, vinyl and MP3 download. It features 13 tracks including the much lauded elegy to 2016 "The War" (previewed on YouTube in December) and the new single "Sounds Good To Me" which precedes the album in April.
Thea has already described the album as a sonic departure from recent work, and christened it 'the more mature elder sister' of her 2003 breakthrough album "Avalanche".
After leaving Fullfill Records, Thea signed to Cooking Vinyl - home of Billy Bragg, Passenger, Richard Thompson, Ron Sexsmith to name a few - in late 2016. "It felt like coming home" she said of the new deal, "I'm surrounded by like minds and with a label that has impeccable pedigree, and a wonderful track recording of building the careers of artists I admire".
