Lights Out

In May I posted two songs from the Lol Hammond and Duncan Forbes album Who Will Stop The Robots?- the shoegaze plus 808s shimmer of Sorry Kids We left You With A Black Sun and the more ethereal The Sky Is Falling (the post is here). The album is released today digitally, eleven tracks that definitely tap into something of the times we live in, ambient lockdown psychedelia maybe. The album's closer is this one, Lights Out (Return To Strawberry Fields), four minutes of gentle, blissful noise, some evocative Mellotron notes (hence what's referred to in the brackets) and the overall feeling that things might just turn out OK in the end.
