|Departure Lounge, the band from the UK comprising Tim Keegan (lead vocals, guitar), Chris Anderson (keyboards, guitar, saxophone, vocals), Lindsay Jamieson (drums, keyboards, flute, vocals) and Jake Kyle (bass guitar, double bass, guitar, trumpet, vocals), enjoyed a critically acclaimed period from 1998 to 2002 releasing three albums on Bella Union and Flydaddy records. In 2019 the four original members drove down to Middle Farm Studios in the deepest Devon countryside, where they recorded an album of brand new material with studio owner and co-producer, Peter Miles. The old magic was stronger than ever and the resulting album, “Transmeridian”, contains some of their finest work to date. The album’s imminent single, Australia, features Peter Buck from R.E.M. on Rickenbacker 12-string. The album “Transmeridian” is scheduled for release in March 2021 on Violette Records. |
