Album Stream: 'Picture Of Our Youth' by David's Lyre

The long-awaited debut from this baroque pop outfit is finally coming out, on a pay-what-you-like basis via Bandcamp, on the 20th of February. It's been a long time coming, and though singer/producer has put out awesome Christmas-time Advent albums two years running, it seemed like a strictly David's Lyre record wasn't going to happen.

Here's a bit of the back-story: within six months of launching the project, Dixon was signed by a major and an LP was projected to drop by the end of 2011.

Things didn't quite work out that way though, and after what I can only assume were some awkward contractual/legal issues, this album's finally come together without the big label behind it.

On a first listen, Picture Of Our Youth sounds just as textured and sweetly poppy as I would have hoped. Have a listen for yourself, then head to their Bandcamp in a few weeks if your ears are pleased.
