Last Town Chorus Last Town Chorus CD (2003)
CD $16.65 Buy It  Details
The Last Town Chorus, aka singer, songwriter, and lap steel guitarist Megan Hickey and guitarist Matt Guy, self-released their first album in 2003; the estimable British indie Blast First reissued the set in 2005, just before the duo split up. (Hickey has since maintained the band name with various guest musicians.) The Last Town Chorus is a bare-bones slice of dream pop that owes equal amounts to the 4AD Records ethos of atmosphere above all and the downcast ache of the mid-'90s slowcore bands like Low and Bedhead. Barring a few minimal bass, organ, and percussion overdubs, these nine songs consist entirely of Hickey's mournful vocals and idiosyncratic lap steel playing, with Guy's effects-heavy guitar lines in a decidedly secondary accompanist role. Hickey, originally a bassist, had never played the lap steel guitar until the duo started, and her lack of training means that her playing style is well outside the usual blues and country tradition; on songs like "The Ground," a closer comparison is Mary Timony's detuned slide guitar in the mid-'90s indie band Helium, Hickey offering up near-atonal swells and waves of sound. The sound of The Last Town Chorus is decidedly narcotic, with none of the tunes venturing beyond a somnambulant tempo and with few emotional settings beyond "mopey." As a result, The Last Town Chorus at least sets and maintains a mood for attractive ambient listening, but closer attention isn't repaid. ~ Stewart Mason The Last Town Chorus haunts Brooklyn, NY, and is led by the singular voice and ethereal lap steel playing of Megan Hickey. The Last Town Chorus has shared the stage with The Innocence Mission, Hem, Amy Allison, The Jayhawks, Ida, Mary Lorson, and many others. The debut album has been slowly creeping around the globe based on listener affection and critical intrigue. "A highly seductive debut set to spellbind a whole new set of languid disciples" - Uncut, UK "Sultry, narcotic pop... I've played their self-titled debut to death... - Village Voice, New York "Few have sounded this exquisitely mournful since Mazzy Star split up...That they can address the pleasures of urban life, while sounding so utterly dislocated from it, is what makes the Last Town Chorus so unusually poignant" - The Times, London "Songs like 'Dear City' and 'Brooklyn Navy Yard, 1950' take urban vignettes and repaint them with the lilt and humidity of rural Americana: ...
