We are very excited about our next release by Julian Pitt, aka Armstrong, as it is one we have hinted at and teased, especially with the inclusion of the wonderful song “This One” on our label sampler that was released several years back. So to say that the release of Armstrong‘s “Happy Graffiti” album was highly anticipated and eagerly awaited by some of us would be a huge understatement.
Previous albums have received excellent reviews with Julians’s music being compared to Aztec Camera/Roddy Frame, The Pearlfishers, Teenage Fanclub, Prefab Sprout, Lloyd Cole, Dream Academyand Trash Can Sinatras. Alex Green (Caught In The Carousel) once wrote: “Under Blue Skies is one of the most satisfying and melodic albums in recent memory…Armstrong’s lustrous debut presents Pitt as the new unheralded prince of pastoral pop. With a voice that lilts and soars like Roddy Frame or The Pearlfisher’s David Scott, Pitt is truly a splendid find.” Powerpopaholic stated about Songs About The Weather: “Fans of sunshine and baroque pop would do well to check out the latest album from Armstrong … If you enjoy wistful ballads and sun-kissed melodies that are brimming with emotion you’ll want to listen to Armstrong”
We are very proud to finally, after many years, release this wonderful gem of an album and hope it brings you much joy.
For this album we teamed up again with the brilliant UK label, Country Mile Recordshttp://www.countrymile.org/ a partnership we are very proud to involved with. Please Enjoy!
