New solo album by The Earlies’ synth wizard Christian Madden

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 22, 2017 by dc

Ex Earlies keyboardist and ‘amiable drunkard‘, Christian Madden has just released his debut solo album and it’s an absolute stonker. ‘The Wrecking Place‘ is a 12 track instrumental concept album described as, “providing the soundtrack to a string of unimportant events that took place in Burnley between 1985 and 2004“. It’s a humble pitch but always better to under promise and over deliver.

From start to finish the album runs amok across a variety of genres with ease, tipping a hat to funk, jazz, hip-hop, breakbeat, and prog rock without ever seeming like some rag bag collection of random thoughts. It’s a beautifully well crafted journey through Madden’s musical loves and adventures.

Aesop Rock streams new album ‘The Impossible Kid’ on YouTube

One of my favourite rappers, Aesop Rock‘s new album, The Impossible Kid, is released this Friday. To tease it’s release, Aesop is streaming the album in it’s entirety – not only that, the whole thing is accompanied by a massively lo-fi remake of The Shining made with tiny figurines. It’s a unique (no sh*t) and pretty awesome way to go about such promotional shenanigans.
