We don't agree on much at all but this is one area where your music has brought something together.
I wasn't expecting much to be honest but i am listening to this now on Spotify.

This is very different, very interesting but most importantly this is very good. This will be an album i will be returning to for more listens i am really enjoying this. Thanks for the heads up

Yeah, good shout, only listened to 1 track so far (Ducks In A Row) but more good stuff.
Dunno if its the vox on that song, but reminds me a bit of Julian Cope, which is good.
Well done, keep up the good work etc. :smt006
...I'm making lists of all the people I love,
and all the cunts that should fuck off...

Oh, I really enjoy Fry Coughs and News About Your Ticket! Will have a few listens the coming week but at first glimpse a very well and varied piece of work. Keep 'em coming!

Thanks! You aren't the first to make a Cope comparison actually, we used to get people at Parasite gigs telling us to check out Teardrop Explodes all the time, so that's cool.
Thanks for listening!

Nice one, glad you like it! I'm especially glad you picked News About Your Ticket cos I think that's possibly my favourite.
Thanks for listening!

Hi I've played your new album on Amazon music (I don't collect records or CDs anymore).

It sounds like an interesting album for sure, and definitely would warrant a further listen to get more familiar with the songs. Manifest is one that just caught my ears...

And Well Done You Exist reminded me just a little bit of a Kraftwerk track called Franze Schubert.

Or should I play one of your other albums next instead ? Do they have the same kind of sounds ?

I am finding it harder nowadays to really get deeply into specific albums or artists as there is just so much stuff available at your fingertips.....

Anyway I hope you get adequately rewarded for your work.

Awesome, thanks for listening! Yeah I'd say similar sounds on my other albums if you're interested:
"Dear Sir or Adam" is a mix of weird songs with very synthetic drum parts, some modular bleeps and bloops and some tracks of just strange noises.
"In Vast Inner Oceans" is maybe the most similar to the new album but the instrumental tracks are very out there and odd. This is probably my most "odd" album.
"What Have You" is apparently my most consistent album which starts with my more popular songs like Quiz Night and ends with my most popular instrumental called Kaufhaus.

Interesting you mention Franz Schubert, that's one of my favourite Kraftwerk tracks but it wasn't a conscious influence.

I know what you mean about there being so much stuff available these days. It really takes effort to find new artists that are actually creating something interesting. This week I've been checking out the new album from Dead Finks, quite an underground punky sort of group, pretty good.
