    his third record is out in February '21 - it's spawned three singles so far including Sign and the utterly delightful disco behemoth Echoes :disco: plus Feels Right (which has a new Gerd Janson remix which is also killer).




    I actually have not listened to his second album yet or the random singles that followed, but the debut is such a total pleasure front to back that I should probably fix that. I think the artwork scared me off. I'm currently trying to find a vinyl copy of Roosevelt but it's quite pricey on Amazon and unavailable elsewhere :(



    ANY TAKERS? @funky @FetchFugly @ameraal @Christian @Lockhart @northernlad

    Both albums are great. He hasn't changed much sound-wise, a slight discoing up aside maybe, but the new songs have all been marvellous.

    Lovers is wonderful. The synths are kind of giving me eighties OMD

    here we go!



    it feels like a more consciously retro disco record to me - leaning into a lot of 80s synth-pop/yacht rock territory.

    Agree it is definitely much more retro than his two previous albums. I think the singles already suggested that but it goes further elsewhere - Closer to My Heart especially goes in that yacht direction.

    I think it is a really strong collection, even if we had 5/9 of the proper songs already.
