Museumgoer ascends to the summit of the cut and paste keyboard kings


As you know we are wholly infatuated with the ever evolving sound of Baton Rouge's, Museumgoer. We've followed Museumgoer through ten excellent EPs of ambienxw, fun, darkness and light, and yet, it's possible Museumgoer 11 is the most exciting and accessible release so far. It's chock full of spare... Spare everything. Imagine Money Mark never opened a keyboard repair shop... There's not an overused note. There's gentle persuasion.Museumgoer 11

11 opens with, This Is How We Stack Folding Chairs, oh the melody madness of the quirked up organ over hand drums... It's delightful. Before my pulse can settle, Eniac Rumpus Mode ushers in his Christmastime pedal steel acquisition, (Lord! Thank you Santa!) and what sounds like a Bentley Rhythm Ace, supercharged. It's over the top! It's restrained. It's emotional. It's influenced by gone unnoticed for decades parts of The The's Soul Mining percussion and it has to be heard.

The EP is rounded out with two equally understated tracks, In Heavy Syrup and the sombre Hangover in G. A mere 8 minutes and 28 seconds have elapsed, if you don't allow for pauses for thought, and in that time Museumgoer has insouciantly ascended to the summit of the cut and paste keyboard kings and is a fixture on all major lo-fi playlists by the end of the week.

All About and Contributors


Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]


If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
