It’s been quite a while, but I’m pleased to finally report the release of a new album, ‘Like Dust of the Balance’, out now on Benbecula Records on CD/download formats. Following on from my ‘Death of an Aura’ taster EP released last year, ‘Like Dust’ extends the playlist to ten tracks, and features the writing/performing talents of multi-instrumentalist Benet Walsh (Plaid, Leila) on four of them.
As with my previous albums, you can stream the whole thing in its entirety on my site link , and can purchase downloads through Bleep and Amazon mp3, with iTunes et al following whenever they get round to it. If you missed out on Lemodie CDs, Bleep now has Lemodie available in lossless wav, for a proper CD-quality download. I had hoped for a repress, but as Benbecula are closing their doors in November, that’s probably now not going to happen.
As for ‘Like Dust’ CDs, your best bet at the moment is to order directly from Benbecula, though I’ve noticed Norman Records and Rough Trade also have it up for sale. Hopefully the CDs will filter through the usual retail outlets in time, but as it was with Lemodie, distribution is expected to be somewhat spotty for a while.
Lastly, in celebration of my first album in three years, I’ve set up a line of official merchandise featuring the design talents of Nathaniel Reeves (nkurence), available through Spreadshirt (both the US and European stores). The quality is absolutely top-notch, featuring an intricate vector logo design in a variety of complementary colourways, as well as some interesting special finished such as glitter/sparkle and raised flock prints. Send me your pics wearing them and I’ll start a little gallery!
