Philadelphia, Blockhead Remix
The new Mike Rosenberg single, Philadelphia, follows on from the group's first digital only release, Stray Dog. It's the first commercial single to be released from the album and carries the imagery of the title.
Mike Rosenberg is a young man, who is capable, through his lyrics, of telling stories from the perspective of the ageing, world-weary man, lost, rootless and full of regret. His partner in this noble endeavour is Andrew Phillips, guitarist, arranger and soundtrack composer. There are almost twenty years between the pair, yet their sad, observational perspective on modern life is almost identical, to the point where they can hardly unravel the who-wrote-what of the twelve desolate beauties that make up their forthcoming debut album, "Stray Dog".
Band favourite Ninja Tune's Blockhead weighs in to uncover the seedy underbelly of the city; Blockhead was a big influence on the band while making the record because of his use of unusual samples and textures and the sound world he creates - they wanted him to create a leftfield remix that drew out the darker side of Philadelphia, which he has done and to great effect.
