Warm Currency is a new project by Sydney-based friends, artists and musicians MP Hopkins and Mary MacDougall. Mary began working with MP Hopkins and Christopher Schueler in 2008 as Vincent Over the Sink morphed into The Bowles. Returns was recorded in Mary’s home during 2020-2021 and is their first release since 2012’s The Bowles EP (Kye).
Quietly intense folk music, song-poems, and concrète collages built from seemingly simple and delicate arrangements for guitar, keyboards, voice and tape.
Recommended if you like Flaming Tunes, Nico, Alistair Galbraith, The Garbage and the Flowers.
Returns is presented on a 45rpm black vinyl 10″ with full colour sleeve and 12 page booklet featuring cermaics by Mary MacDougall and photography by MP Hopkins.
