about

The Piano Tapes Vol. 1 is the brand-new EP by Jenny Moore, leader of London-based six-piece choral-punk ensemble Jenny Moore’s Mystic Business. These stripped back, swirling, reverberant songs were recorded live in one day in a cavernous church in Dalston, summer 2021 with members of Jenny Moore’s Mystic Business and F*Choir. A bit more private than my previous work – they’re songs written early in the morning when everyone is still asleep upstairs, or behind the closed door of the dining room, surrounded by my housemates, drying laundry while we couldn’t leave the house. I think of the songs like a reflective surface, shimmery and illusive, but alluring. In these songs, I’m talking mostly to myself, groping around for a way to sit with weird feelings, new crises, new configurations. The big chorus of voices are a kind of collective conscience, a tender but powerful gathering of chosen family and my own inner voices trying to figure out what the f*ck is going on.”

The Piano Tapes Vo. 1 is the follow up to JMMB’s debut EP release for Lost Map in October 2021, He Earns Enough, the lead single from which ‘I Am Afraid’ received extensive radio play across BBC Radio 6 Music, particularly from Steve Lamacq, who called it “a great record”, and selected the track as his Lamacq Livener for play on his show every day during week of release.

About ‘Hotel Room’ Jenny writes:

“A love song to myself and to the pleasurable dislocation that comes from getting into crispy hotel sheets in a city that’s not mine. This tune excavates an inner landscape that is always making up stories, seeing ghosts, building caves for myself to hide in. The body is weird, memory is inventive, and sometimes I crave a generic box room in an average sized European city to get lost in.”
