It has landed! Kid Canaveral's third album, Faulty Inner Dialogue, is out now on CD, LP and through all digital channels.
David, Kate, Rose, Scott and - new recruit - keyboard boffin, Michael, have put together 12 addictive new tracks. Faulty Inner Dialogue finds the band building on the electronic sounds that featured around the fringes of Now That You Are A Dancer while retaining their instantly identifiable core of miscreant-romantic melodic guitar pop.
Here's a note from David, from the band ...
The day is finally here. Our new, and third, album Faulty Inner Dialogue is out there on the racks of record shops, on the digital racks of iTunes et al, and birling around endlessly on Spotify and its ilk.
I was sitting in the car on the way back from the football last night, waiting for the clock to strike midnight so that I could sit a little bit more at ease, a little bit more relaxed, and a whole lot prouder. Oh, and also so I could tweet all in capitals that our new record was OUT NOW OMG WUT.
I am so very proud of this album. This album that has come together from fragments of sound captured on smartphones; from ideas captured on an answerphone in the middle of nowhere using a battered guitar with 5 strings; from ideas and words scribbled on the back of receipts and train tickets; from songs wrought into shape and torn to bits again; from hours spent in a studio recording and arranging; and from hours mixing and sweating over the details.
I am nervous too, because perhaps this record is a little too personal. Perhaps it’s a little too raw. Perhaps it is too different. But to stand still would have been boring for everyone. To be too guarded would have made it pointless.
These worries are academic now as it’s been flung out into the world for all to hear. I hope you love it as much as we do.
That’s probably about enough misty-eyed pish from me - Faulty Inner Dialogue is released today on the very fine Lost Map Records.
Go and buy it, then come and see us at Summerhall in Edinburgh tomorrow (30/7) to celebrate.
You can purchase the album on CD or LP from the link above, or digitally from these places ...
Come and launch the album in style, with the band, at Summerhall tomorrow night (30th July) - advance tickets still available from here: http://www.summerhall.co.uk/2016/nehh-presents-kid-canaveral-album-launch-friends/
"Kid Canaveral’s previous album, the effervescent Now That You Are a Dancer, was longlisted for 2014 Scottish Album of the Year. Now making alt-pop that balances breeziness with gravitas, and established tropes with progression and purpose, there’s every chance Faulty Inner Dialogue will go one better." 8/10 Drowned in Sound
"Hiding sensitive songwriting about selfies and self-doubt behind a shimmering façade of catchy riffs and glitchy beats" **** The List
