Office Politics Out Today!

It’s official folks. The new album by The Divine Comedy Office Politics is out today!

I’m presuming you’ve all got your copies already. You have? Excellent.

The first single Queuejumper was released back in April with this rather excellent video.

This was followed by Norman & Norma last week and now the album is finally here!

We had a great time making this record and I think you’re gonna love it. We had our pre-release show at Prizm in Kingston on Wednesday and the new songs sounded great. We also did an acoustic session on Chris Evans’ Virgin Radio show last Friday which I think you can still hear if you go to the Virgin Radio website. Don’t hang about though, it won’t be there for long. In case you missed it, here’s us playing Norman & Norma.

There’ll be a big European tour in the Autumn. The dates are all up on the Divine Comedy website. It’s gonna be a blast. Hopefully we’ll see you there and in the meantime enjoy Office Politics šŸ˜‰

New Monochrome Echo Album Out Now!

Hello folks,

For those of you that haven’t spotted it yet, I’ve been producing electronic music under the name Monochrome Echo for a few years now.

Today I’m releasing my second full-length albumĀ Nobody IsĀ Looking At You worldwide and I need your support! It’s a collection of 14 tracks I’ve been working on over the last year or so. Jason Rebello guests on one track and the artwork is by the excellent artist StrateGo.Nine. Ta-da!

Big thanks to those of you that preordered the album on my Bandcamp page! The album is now also available to buy and/or stream in all digital stores worldwide including all the usual suspects (iTunes, Spotify, Deezer, Tidal etc). Personally I’d go to Bandcamp for the HD version. Plus you can also buy my full discography on bandcamp with a nifty 25% discount (Ā£18.75 for the lot). Not to be sniffed at folks…

So, if you haven’t already, now’s the time to follow Monochrome Echo on Spotify, TwitterĀ andĀ Facebook.

After you’ve gone and bought the record obviously.

It’d also be an excellent time to add a few Monochrome Echo tracks to your electronic music playlists on Spotify. I’d start with Dot Matrix, Master Control Program and Look Both Ways (feat. Jason Rebello). They’re my favourites anyway. Spotify seems to have changed it’s discovery algorithm and forgotten what I sound like.

But most importantly it’s time to spread the word! You will know better than me who amongst your friends will be into my stuff. Please tell them about the record and share my links and posts on your Twitter feed, Facebook etc. It makes a big difference.

Anyway, without further ado, here’s the new album and I hope you like it!

Tell your mates!!

New Monochrome Echo EP Zebraprint Out Now

New Monochrome Echo EP Zebraprint Out Now!!!

Those of you following my Monochrome Echo stuff will probably be aware of this already but I thought it was about time I posted about it here on the blog for those that missed it.

Following the release of the first full-length albumĀ I Remember My Dreams backĀ in June, I have just put out my third EP as Monochrome Echo. This is my electronic project in case you’ve been hiding under a rock somewhere. I’ve been releasing music under this name for a while now and it’s pretty much become the new face of my solo output.

The album is available digitally everywhere (There are no physical copies I’m afraid; but those of you that fancy a copy of my album can get one of the very limited edition cassettes via Wizard of Loneliness in the states), but as always the best place to get it is from my official Monochrome Echo Bandcamp Page where you can download it in whatever high-quality format you prefer.

At my Bandcamp page you can also buy the full Monochrome Echo back catalogue (including the brand new EP) as a bundle with a nifty 25% discount. You know it makes sense. Here’s a handy player so you can have a listen and a massive button to click to help you buy the record and support my music!

For the cheapskates amongst you the album is also available to stream on Spotify etc, as are all the other releases. Don’t forget to follow me on Spotify too so you can keep up to date with all the latest tracks and curated playlists! I particularly recommend my Inspiration Information playlist which has a whole bunch of the tracks that inspire my music. Enjoy!
