Humtracks releases ‘Memoirs Of A Projectionist’ by Paul Housden

‘Memoirs Of A Projectionist’ – Eerie 70’s inspired pop bringing together the cosmic funk, cinematic psychedelia, and smooth airy harmonies – with a dark introspective lyrical twist.

“The best place to view an aching, lonely heart is where Paul Housden places it, in the nostalgic glow of bright neon lights and a sunshine soundtrack” Humtracks MD Joe Glasman

Originally from Melbourne, London-based composer and multi-instrumentalist Paul Housden draws on his obsession with 70’s music and cinema with the release of his second album Memoirs Of A Projectionist. The loose concept album recounts the lonely tales of a movie projectionist, evoking everything from blaxploitation chase scenes to space-age cocktail parties, while the narrator watches the reels roll on with a detached gaze.

Overflowing with haunting harmonies, colourful synths, fuzz guitars, and Steely Dan-esque grooves, Memoirs perfectly captures the nuances of the era, leading us on a vivid journey through the red-light streets of Taxi Driver and beyond!

Humtracks releases “We Don’t Play Rock’n’Roll” by The Pink Diamond Revue

The Pink Diamond Revue’s “We Don’t Play Rock’n’Roll”

Our recent release of this electro sonic beat punk extravaganza, features Tim Lane, Robert Courtman-Stock and the mesmerising Acid Dol.

“Electro-dance, mutant Rock’n’Roll: soundtracks for the 21st Century”

Regulars of the British festival circuit, headlining the alternative stage at Forever Sun and Salisbury Arts Festival in 2016, what’s key to Pink Diamond Review’s show is the use of film projection, imagery, lighting and their ever-present front-woman, Acid Dol.

Label owner Joe Glasman says: “Pink Diamond Revue are a one off – their live show is created to work hand-in-hand with on-stage imagery, making it that rare thing: a brilliant and authentic live act creating sync friendly music.”

‘‘60s film soundtracks meet sampladelic acid house in a baggy-punk rathole somewhere in the Interzone.’’ Gappy Tooth 2016

All about Humtracks – in just 15 seconds!

Works strangely well for picture ….

We’re thrilled with this short animated video that sums up what our Humtracks label is all about: quirky, unexpected and wondrous music – by artists – that works strangely well to picture.

We don’t apologise for how short it is – it was the result of a lot of hard work distilling exactly what we’re doing with our label: working with uniquely talented writers to produce exceptional and unusual music that has that magic something that makes it work so well for the moving image.

We hope you like the results which were executed brilliantly by Argentinian designer Florencia Lorea. Enjoy!
