{The Real Tuesday Weld}


I've had The Real Tuesday Weld’s new album The London Book of The Dead on regular rotation lately. The Real Tuesday Weld's (aka Stephen Coates) music has been described as “Serge Gainsbourg and Cole Porter on Absinthe creating an old-fashioned radio play.”

The first thing you notice about any album by The Real Tuesday Weld is that the compositions seems to be drawn from vintage sounds complete with hissing vinyl, but with the addition of samples, loops, and glitchy beats to create a signature sound he calls "antique beat" to create something completely new.

Don't take my word for it, have a listen...
