Luke Mawdsley is a Liverpool musician and one half of the duo Mésange. Following his 2017 debut he released a new album on Maple Death earlier this year. Vulgar Displays of Affection features acoustic guitar, synthesizers and Mawdsley’s down-pitched voice – together setting a scene that feels umheimlich in the same way as Nick Cave’s Stranger Than Kindness. Closing track The River Takes It All would have been perfect for the last season of Twin Peaks. Today we are premiering the remix by Xiu Xiu of the opening track “Little Blanket” which will be included as a digital bonus if you buy the album from today. Between now and Christmas all digital proceeds will be donated to Women’s Aid.
