Mixtape #118

lessbells.bandcamp.com

A tremendously talented multi-instrumentalist and composer, Julie Carpenter‘s musical involvements include performing, recording and collaborating with an array of bands and projects, including Brian Jonestown Massacre, Eels and The Autumns, amongst others. Her move to Joshua Tree from LA, paired with her orchestral experience and electronica influences, gave birth to Less Bells, her sublime ambient orchestral project. She has just released her second album, Mourning Jewelry, an utterly engrossing and beautiful record that is both ominous and melancholic as well as contemplative and joyful. So it’s with immense pleasure that we present the mixtape Less Bells cooked up for us. Press play and let the magic happen.
