Review Text Vinyl LP pressing including digital download. 2016 debut album by the Welsh singer/songwriter, produced by Cate LeBon and Tim Presley. For fans of early Stiff Records. "The first time I met Alex Dingley, he was standing in a dark rainy alleyway in the UK. I was halfway intimidated, him smoking a cigarette as he grinned wide... Two front teeth missing and he extended his hand... Mischievously laughing. Immediately I felt his kind and genial warm soul. I knew he was a longtime friend of Cate Le Bon, so I knew he was good people. When asked to co-produce his album with Cate I was so very interested to hear his life in music. Anyone with two front teeth knocked out must have a plethora of wild stories (and... he does). I couldn't have been more curious. He comes from Wales, where he shares his life with his lovely wife Mared, who in 2010 collapsed and was diagnosed with a grade-three brain tumor. She was given 18 months to live, but is still here six years later. Touch wood every day. She is a colorful, inspired artist, and uses her art to express this life reset. Alex has story, he has more than story, and these life-changing events have inspired a need to bleed the pen... This time they are both sharing this experience through the eternal beauty of love, art, and song. Bags were packed and Alex, Mared, Cate, myself and trusted (sonic master) recorder Samur Khouja all communed up in the panoramic house studio overlooking the ocean in Northern California. Far from Wales, but near a release, an unfettered Pacific expressional adventure." - Tim Presley.
