SJD
Songs From a Dictaphone

[ Round Trip Mars CD / CD ]

Release Date: Wednesday 18 July 2007

Where SJD's previous long player, 'Southern Lights', was all micro-tones and dark shades, there is a more colourful side to SJD's oeuvre on display here, with danceable delicacies and generous synthesizer washes, complementing the much loved moody moments and ballads.

Representing the latter "Forty Flights Up", "Mary Anne", "Two Bodies" and "Lucifer "are amongst the most accomplished songs he has yet written. "Bad Karma in Yokahama" and "Beautiful Haze" are typically good SJD numbers, while songs like "Just Say No To The Disco Inferno", "I Am The Radio" and third single "I Wrote This Song For You" carve out new exciting uptempo territory.

There are synth / pop shades of Sean's 80s musical background, sitting alongside Dylan-esque Biblical based mutterings, hypnotic motoric shufflers, drop dead gorgeous ballads - plenty to please old fans and initiate new ones. Don't be fooled by the humble title 'Songs From a Dictaphone' is one of THE albums of 2007!
