The Lowly Man Album

Andy and I are pleased to finally announce the release of our debut album, called simply, Lowly Man. We are giving copies to friends who have supported us over the last year. The first pressing is limited to 48 CDs, to be followed by another 50.

We’re proud of our efforts, and feel that it stands up well as an original album of music within a mixture of musical genres, including (and not confined to) Alternative/Indie Rock, Psychedelic Rock, Pop, and Electronica. Hopefully, we’ve managed to bridge the gap between catchy tunes, solid songwriting, and sonic experimentation.

There are 11 tracks on the album, recorded between July 2020 and August 2021. 8 of the tracks previously appeared on our 2 EPs (Lowly Man EP and Alpha Dogs EP), and the remaining 3 were recorded over the summer, whenever we could find the time.

The handmade CD includes an 8-page booklet of lyrics. We may make the CD commerically available at a later date, with a different cover, if there is any demand.

Alpha Dogs EP

After completing the debut Lowly Man EP in February, we received a lot of positive feedback. So we were spurned on to launch straight into a follow-up. Andy had a couple of ideas lined up, and I had a couple of riffs looking for a home too.

Andy read an article on male personality types, categorised by Greek letters. It inspired him to write lyrics about past experiences with these personalities. I was ready to dive back into recording, after learning lots of tricks on the first EP. And I had a few ideas of my own about giving each track its own character.

So, only 11 weeks after the first EP was finished, we had a second EP ready for release. This was also made available on Bandcamp, using a old photograph of Andy, illustrating the subject of the song Alpha Dogs.
