Dignan Porch Announce New Album 'Observatory' Due Out In The UK 16th June 2014 Plus 'Wait & Wait & Wait' Free Download

Following two highly acclaimed albums on Captured Tracks, Dignan Porch return withObservatory, their first UK record release, coming out 16th June on revered Brighton-based independent label Faux Discx (Cold Pumas, Vision Fortune, Hookworms, Sauna Youth).

Starting life as a one-man bedroom project for band leader Joseph Walsh, Dignan Porch has now blossomed in to a ramshackle group of perpetually laid-back sounding humans creating music that straddles the lines between psychedelia, folk, indie pop and grunge. Attracting a large cult following with every release, the band have been on headline tours of the UK, Europe, and US, which saw them driving over 9000 miles around the country with no tour manager or budget, and sleeping on floors every night.

When the Porch kick out the jams they give the impression that they're careering along with only a couple of wheels still on the road, just about in control, but always on the verge of tipping over. There is a sadness that lurks beneath many of these rough-around-the-edges pop songs, a blurry-eyed realisation of the boredom of everyday life that seems to creep in to the very fabric of Dignan Porch's sound. The ash tray is full, the can is empty.

The majority of Observatory was written and recorded at home during 2013 when Joe was living in a flat above a used-carpet shop in South London. It was cold and noisy but the rent was low, there were no neighbours to disturb and his room was huge. The perfect setting. The best of times / the worst of times. The band spent evenings and weekends getting their parts down and piecing the songs together. This DIY approach to recording works perfectly for Dignan Porch though, mid-fi fits them well.
