John Foxx & The Maths new album - Sun, 23 Jan 2011 21:22:00

What's the second most interesting news besides the new Ultravox-album? Well, it must be this very interesting upcoming album from John Foxx! Again, he collaborates with The Maths and this just might be a match made in heaven.

Townsend Records sums it up well; "Moody and atmospheric, but also full of songs that are actually more "pop" than avant garde, Interplay pulls various strands of electronic music together - from early electro to 70s Krautrock, even flashes of Cabaret Voltaire and Foxx's first band, Ultravox!"

Release date for the album Interplay is 21st Marsch. Until then, download the MP3 Single "Destination/September Town" - It's bubbly electronic pop, that sounds a lot like an updated version of the good old sound from the early 80īs. Simply great.

Great to hear news of the new Vox album, hatchet now fully buried it seems.Cant see how the Maths album can sound anything like the early Vox as there are no guitars on it. Remember guitars? Robin and I are currently at editing and final mixing stage of the 3rd AjantaMusic album. Less world music, more out of this world! We now have a free preview download track available on our website. www.ajantamusic.com - Enjoy!

You are right about one thing; there will be NO guitars on the album! It's all analogue synthesizers, so the resemblance to Ultravox is not that big. But there are definitely elements in the music that reminds about Ultravox.

I'm not sure what your advertising has to do with this release. But at least it's an reply. Can't say I notice that people are jumping up and down of joy for this album... It will be very interesting though for anyone enjoying icy strings and miniMoog, which should be everyone on the forum wink

Here's a good tip to get another song; if you pre-order from Townsend Records, you'll get an exclusive edit of the track "Evergreen" as free download. It's John Foxx sounding more pop than in ages, a very nice song well recommended.

I wouldn't say that. If you go over and have a look at the forum area at Metamatic , there's lots of interest and anticipation of this release.
