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.

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.

what did you think of it miss @Beverley? I've also seen @Pipo stanning on the socials.

i'm on a massive Roosevelt fix atm, getting plenty of use from this new album (See You Again, Closer to My Heart and of course Echoes/Lovers are really doing it for me) but totally stanning and obsessing over the debut. that is a behemoth of a record. the sound of Night Moves/Belong/Moving On/Fever is so massive.

anyway here's the making-of my favourite Roosevelt track, Echoes - he plays so many instruments, wtf.

It’s a great album. I’m still working my way through it though, haven’t listened to it loads... you can tell it’s a grower.

I like both of these, they mix it up a bit from the sound of the album (even though they are meant to be included on an upcoming deluxe version I think).

that remix of (the amazing) Move Into Me is an absolute glitterfest. so good.
