About this album

As the title suggests, Benedic Lamdin’s debut album for Tru Thoughts is a sombre affair.

Heavy on the atmospherics and even heavier on the beats, Ben dusts off vintage jazz, obscuro-funk and psych tidbits, rearranging them as moody, downtempo cuts for modern-day headphone junkies.

Dark and brooding without ever being depressing, ‘Songs For My Funeral’ is a first rate debut by a fearless producer.

“Songs For My Funeral is the soundtrack to one of your best memories. This album is another gem in the Tru Thoughts crown”

“An impressive, freewheelin’ debut”
Music Week

“Nostalgia 77 has a real talent for making the tunes into an atmosphere rather than a clever collection of beats. This beats Blue- Note silly, echoes the best of P- Funk and puts DJ Shadow to shame”
Record Collector

“Nostalgia 77 has created a unique, melancholy and wonderful sonic world”
The Big Chill

“The perfect soundtrack to a latter-day imaginary Kafkarian dystopia. Mesmerising”
Whats On

“A brooding epic full of sombre horns, acoustic bass, disjointed gospel voices and some of the best drawn-out crunching beats in the UK since Portishead’s Dummy”
Grand Slam Magazine
