'Lightinsisters' is the second single from Grumbling Fur's third album, Preternaturals and with Tim Burgess' vocals' double-tracked weirdness, it's another example of their un-classifiable listenable oddness. Featuring Burgess is no surprise; Alexander Tucker and Daniel O'Sullivan (otherwise known as Grumbling Fur) remixed and designed the artwork for 'Talking In Tones', The Charlatans' recent comeback single, and they just supported Charlatans at the Garage in London.
The Grumbling Fur Time Machine Orchestra is how the pair are referring to their live incarnation. Incorporating other musicians, the two are able to explore their songs in a different way... although how they plan to go further than their already slightly bizarre synth space pop we do not know.
