The Last Dinosaur The Nothing Limited Vinyl LP

Overview:
Poignant, dreamlike, beautiful: The Last Dinosaur's The Nothing is a record to swim in. The brainchild of Essex-born Londoner Jamie Cameron, it's an album that addresses a tragic event from his teenage years, and transmutes that experience into a cathartic work of art. The Nothing is uplifting, life-affirming. Its lyrics may tackle the subject of mortality, but the gorgeous, overlapping, interlacing melodies are like drifting in a blissful reverie. 'We'll Greet Death', with its strings, piano, saxophone and acoustic guitar is defiant, possessed of an emotional complexity. On 'Grow', Jamie's lovely acoustic plucking forms the basis for a song about the fragility of life, while 'The Sea' is a meditative post-rock movement that begins in a hushed place and concludes over five minutes later in a gorgeous string-laden denouement. Although Jamie professes to a childhood love for R.E.M and most of all, Talk Talk, the music here is very much his own, self-penned and performed with close friend Rachel Lanskey providing viola on most of the songs. "I've had a very strong sense of never wanting to copy anyone else's music, I just want to sound like me," Jamie says. Created between 2009 and 2016, The Nothing is a stunning, affecting album that is also a touching tribute to Jamie's late friend. "Someone called it elegiac," Jamie says. "I quite liked that notion."
