Jamie Cameron and Luke Hayden started The Last Dinosaur in 2006 after a bout of severe friendship. Shortly afterwards violist Rachel Lanskey (aka la.nskey) joined and late night experimenting on a multitrack recorder produced the recordings that would become 2010's For Happiness">Hooray! For Happiness, an album that The Line of Best Fit called "One of the most refreshing, creative and inventive records of the year."
Shortly before Hooray! for Happiness was released Jamie began work on follow up The Nothing, a collection of songs about mortality and coming to come to terms with the loss of a close friend after a severe car accident that happened during his teenage years. After 7 years in the works the album was finally released in the summer of 2017 by Naim Records to critical acclaim and has seen comparisons to Sparklehorse, Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Nick Drake, Sufjan Stevens, Gravenhurst, The Leisure Society, and more.
"Elegiac, cathartic, rewarding, and beautifully moving."
★★★★ - Uncut Magazine
"A labour of love about life's transience and fragility."
★★★★ - Mojo
"An extended meditation on life, death and memory."
★★★★ - The Independent
"This profoundly personal album will linger long."
★★★★★ - Music News
"All told, it’s the kind of record you could obsess about; the kind of record you’ll foist on friends, music that you know you’ll be playing months from now. Highly recommended."
★★★★ - The Skinny
"It's one of the albums that just needs to be heard."
★★★★ - Norman Records
