“It is redundant to die in Los Angeles.”
Popular Music is proud to present Minor Works — a new album for the end of time. 2xLP in a gatefold sleeve, limited edition of 300, each hand-numbered and hand-stamped, with a fancy etching on the D side. Pure class.
An 11-part song cycle set in apocalyptic contemporary Los Angeles, Minor Works embraces Armageddon in its myriad forms: literal, personal, existential, eschatological. Minor Works was recorded across three continents, with sessions taking place between Los Angeles, Melbourne, Moscow and New York. It features contributions from a multitude of remarkable players, including a 17-piece Russian chamber orchestra conducted over Zoom. The end has begun.
