When Push Comes To Shove

LP, CD + Digital. Out NOW on Possession Records.

“Chin Up contains 11 tracks of what might be loosely described as “ambient synth pop” with a running time of almost an hour. It is in a way a mirror release to When Push Comes To Shove as both records share the same approach to composition, sound design and production techniques but with different results.”

The Greeks Had A Word For Them

22 March 2020

Also known as Three Broadway Girls, this number is a fun gem from the Pre-Code era of Hollywood Films that came near the end of Prohibition in the US and around the start of the “talkies”, showing a window to an era of free spirited film-making. It’s the Girls Just Wanna Have Fun of the classic Hollywood era.
