Birmingham native Gareth Jones aka Grandmaster Gareth hasn’t released an album in 7 long years but he’s been working on it and he’s ready to drop his third full-length solo album. Magical Sound Shower, the follow-up to his 2003’s An Introduction to Minute Melodies and 2006’s The Party Sounds of Grandmaster Gareth, arrives on June 10th via
his own GM Sounds. The album will be available on vinyl, CD and digitally, and you can pre-order it now.
Magical Sounds Shower takes inspiration from B-movies, pulp sci-fi books, bee documentaries and an extraterrestrial state of being, as the press release explains. The album “sits alongside and builds upon its contemporaries, turning out nineteen tracks of space exotica – the soundtrack to a sci-fi movie that doesn’t exist or a modern day equivalent to Joe Meek’s ‘I Hear a New World’.”
We missed the album’s first single release, ‘The Hoarder of Moments’, but we didn’t let the second one, ‘The Dewormer’, slip through our net. Listen to both tracks below.
