To our faithful listeners,

We've decided to formally shutdown thesixtyone.com -- our servers will go offline at midnight, May 1st 2017.

Artist tipping and music purchases will be functional until then, so please spend any remaining credits by month's end. 
A final payment will be made to artists following the shutdown.

thesixtyone was our baby for most of our twenties. We're incredibly sorry we weren't able to keep things going in the 
right direction.

2007-2017

Thank you for being a part of it.

Farewell,

James Miao & Samuel Hsiung

biography
We are a four piece from Edinburgh and our name is Meursault.

We belong to an Edinburgh collective called 'Bear Scotland Presents...'

We play what is most accurately described as modern folk music, though this description should not be read as an insinuation that Meursault’s music is primarily gentle or acoustic based.


Listen to the songs.

Oh, and read these...


"Meursault... headed by Edinburgh singer-songwriter Neil Pennycook, are one of the most enticing, yet hard to pin down, groups to emerge from the capital in some time...What holds the two extremes of Meursault together is Pennycook's beautiful songs and instantly recognisable voice, an impassioned, heartwrenching howl that can invest even the most straightforward of phrases with a sense of urgency. Potentially he is Edinburgh's answer to Mark Eitzel of American Music Club who he resembles a little, being a tall, gangly, bald-headed romantic with a black, ironic sense of humour or if he chooses to make pop records, Robert Smith of The Cure. One album into their career, Meursault sound like they could go in all sorts of exciting directions."

"A Small Stretch of Land" has touched me in a way that few songs ever have. I can't say I much care for the other songs, but that one is an absolute gem for my ears.

I think what I love the most is the singer's voice. I love your sound so much, and just can't wait to hear more. Really, with all the songs so far, the more I listen, the better and better it gets. But of course, in time, after your audience has found you. Love you guys! Thanks so much for sharing!

good stuff, I await the rest, you might want to wait before uploading more so your songs aren't competing against each other, let some fans build up, if you didn't already know that.
