Andrew PM Hunt my favorite songwriter working today. What might initially scan as familiar is revealed to be deeply charismatic over repeated listens. with one line she can pull you into a world both funny, tragic and completely odd. Favorite track: Pilot.

mcmoggers Probably one of the best albums I own, I have no idea what heaps of the songs are about but she has such a perfect voice, and is such a poet it evokes feelings which come out of nowhere. Generally creating a feeling of contentment and hope and strength, I find. Favorite track: The Barrel.

about

Aldous Harding’s third album, Designer is released on 26th April and finds the New Zealander hitting her creative stride. After the sleeper success of Party (internationally lauded and crowned Rough Trade Shop’s Album of 2017), Harding came off a 200-date tour last summer and went straight into the studio with a collection of songs written on the road. Reuniting with John Parish, producer of Party, Harding spent 15 days recording and 10 days mixing at Rockfield Studios, Monmouth and Bristol’s J&J Studio and Playpen. From the bold strokes of opening track ‘Fixture Picture’, there is an overriding sense of an artist confident in their work, with contributions from Huw Evans (H. Hawkline), Stephen Black (Sweet Baboo), drummer Gwion Llewelyn and violinist Clare Mactaggart broadening and complimenting Harding’s rich and timeless songwriting.
