New Adam Stafford single: Atheist Money
New Adam Stafford single? Why of course, it would be my pleasure.
He has a new album out in October called Taser Revelations, and a wee tour coming up pretty much now. I don’t want to give too much away about the album, apart from the fantastic artwork by Paul Ryding above. Paul also did the artwork for Adam’s last album, Imaginary Walls Collapse, which you can buy here on vinyl.
Musically, I suppose that having listened to it several times over since Adam first sent through the (still not quite entirely finished) mixes a couple of weeks ago, I can sort of try and give you an idea. As you can hear, there’s a clear progression from his last record, one of the poppiest and in many ways most un-Toadlike songs I ever thought I would release, which I really rather surprisingly happen to love, but then in the second half things suddenly get rather darker.
I dunno, who knows what people will make of it, but I fucking love this record and I’m really looking forward to getting it out into the world (so hurry up and finish those final mixes please, Adam).
