Elaine Howley – The Distance Between Heart and Mouth, Dinked Edition Pre-order

Dinked 207 is the debut album from lo-fi psych-pop artist Elaine Howley. As the lead singer of psych-rockers The Altered Hours, Elaine Howley has aways had a passion for experimentation, something that has made her a legend in the Irish underground music scene. Now, for her debut solo release, Howley brings her years of performance in bands into an altogether more low-key project. Imagined as an intimate radio show, The Distance Between Heart and Mouth collects spontaneous moments from Howley’s audio diaries on a 4-track tape recorder. The result is a dizzying mix of classic pop songwriting and deeply textural production, recalling Stereolab, Broadcast, Silver Apples and early Caribou, but with a uniquely lo-fi blanket of warmth over everything. The Distance Between Heart and Mouth is released on August 12th by Touch Sensitive.

The Dinked Edition of The Distance Between Heart and Mouth is on 300 limited and hand-numbered transparent sea blue LP with an exclusive obi-strip and 12 page illustrated colour booklet.
