JOE GODDARD – “MUSIC IS THE ANSWER”
Electric Lines, the new album from producer Joe Goddard, is all about connections. The title refers to the colourful cables that link the modules in his Eurorack synthesizer and to the invisible wires that run between all the different kinds of electronic music that he loves. An apt title for a record which brilliantly unites the strands of his prolific career: member of Hot Chip and the 2 Bears, songwriter, producer, DJ, Grammy award nominated remixer and co-founder of the Greco-Roman label.
Like Four Tet, Caribou and Jamie xx, Joe combines a thirst for experimentation, an instinctive understanding of the dancefloor and a love of left-of-centre pop music. Electric Lines confirms his place in the front rank of British producers.
Following hot on the heels of ‘Lose Your Love’, ‘Music Is The Answer’ is an infectious left-of-centre pop track featuring London singer-songwriter Jess Mills, also known as Slo (previous collaborations include Photek, Distance and Breakage).
Electric Lines will be available on Deluxe Edition Vinyl, featuring a signed double LP on heavyweight vinyl with a wide-spined sleeve, exclusive bonus 12” featuring 3 tracks from the Electric Lines’ album sessions, download card with album + 12” tracks. The CD will feature an initial card pack pressing with a 6 page artwork booklet. You can purchase the album digitally HERE and via Amazon HERE. Vinyl and CD both feature completely unique, separate artwork.
