Liverpool label God Unknown is preparing a series of releases in the early days of 2021, following a 2020 which saw them release works from the likes of Twin Sister, White Hills, and Bushpilot. The first of the upcoming releases is part of «Singles Club: Vol. 4» split series the label started back in 2019. In this entry, the pastoral droning rock of The Left Outsides meets the minimalist ambient of Mésange. The former contribute with «My Reflection Once Was Me», which you can hear below, taken from their 2019 LP «A Place To Hide». The Mésange song, entitled «Uninhabited Spirit», was recently premiered by Shindig! by way of a video by Shanna Charles, which you can also see below.
