New song! ‘Albuquerque’

Wrote a new song. It’s called ‘Albuquerque‘ and it has an LM-1 drum machine, gated reverb, echoing guitar, a synth using a preset called ‘Van Halen Jump’, sampled choir, Fairlight emulator, lead synthesizer and the phrase ‘vibrations of a string in 10D’.

The b-side is ‘Arecibo‘. It’s an instrumental, so took minutes to mix because I didn’t have to make my voice fit. Features the LM-1, a squelchy synth, some Polymoog sounds, the world’s fakest handclaps and a weird key change.

And finally, there’s the original demo of ‘Albuquerque‘ so you can imagine how it might have sounded if I hadn’t developed an unhealthy obsession with Prince-style drum sounds in the past few months.

Free download/pay what you want. Tell me what you think! Will be on Spotify, Apple, etc too sometime in the next few days.

‘BUT HER EMAILS…’ The new album from Anecdata

OUT NOW: ANECDATA’S ‘BUT HER EMAILS…’

Don’t like Donald Trump? Like some synths with your guitars? Here’s the album for you.

Entirely written in the first month of Trump’s presidency, ‘But Her Emails…’ is Anecdata’s attempt to bottle the uncertainty and chaos of those first few weeks of the beginning of the end. Before he fired the head of the FBI, before the ‘Russia thing’ got serious, and when punching Nazis was for fun rather than survival, the administration was a goldmine of soundbites and ineptitude – documented here on songs like ‘Bowling Green Massacre’, ‘Executive Order’ and ‘Never Clever Ever’.

Pay what you want/free download. Coming to iTunes, Spotify, etc very soon!

Check out the first single, ‘Never Clever Ever’, on YouTube or Spotify.
