I recently remixed and remastered ‘Scary Poppins’ and I decided to make the new versions available as a reissue. It will also include a previously unavailable alternate version of ‘Scapegoat’. All the tracks are available as free downloads (at 320 kbps) on Soundcloud.
The new version of my 2nd album ‘Hi Aphrodite’ features louder vocals and a few other changes. All the tracks are available as free downloads (at 320 kbps) on Soundcloud.
Hi Penthus was the 1st album I released under the moniker ‘The Mad Pride’. While free downloads of the songs were previously available, I recently decided to upload higher quality versions (320 kbps). I also fixed the ID3 tags which were not accurate in the mp3s which I originally uploaded back in 2010. The new mp3s can be freely downloaded from The Hi Penthus set on Soundcloud.
Delarue from the New York Music Daily reviewed a few of my songs recently. Scapegoat was described as a “swirly, creepy 6/8 anthem, psychedelic 60s gone noir cabaret with 80s goth production: watery guitars, icy keys and vintage Bowie-esque vocals”. The analysis of Berserkergang was “quavery/whispery goth vocals over reverberating Radiohead-style electric piano”. I also enjoyed the part which read: “Out to Sea is basically Michael Hurley’s Werewolf redone as late 70s Bowie; the real stunner on the page is Malice, an absolutely evil chromatic piano anthem, like Blonde Redhead at the top of their creepy mid-90s game.”
What a review! You can read the whole thing here: http://newyorkmusicdaily.wordpress.com/2012/01/03/madpride/
