"Organs Of The State" - The Second Album
Three years and several thousand miles after Ben Heyworth unveiled his inaugural LP, the acclaimed artist returns with a brand new album. Journeying into a multitude of landscapes, influences from the rainy streets of his Manchester, UK hometown to the Berlin underground are more than audible.
Organs of the State is released via Substream, and sees This Morning Call, as most people know the man in question, continue on the grand sonic adventure that began with 2010’s debut, All Quiet At 4AM. The time between then and now being used to hone his inimitable style, and craft this thoroughly accomplished but difficult to define outing.
From the sombre synth-blues opener The Circulating Stream to the delicate folk strings and guitars of The Pigs, it’s clear that what we have here is a truly mesmerising alt-pop record. A place where down-tempo piano loops and synth instrumentals (Fluids) meet Brandt Brauer Frick-esque acoustic techno (Silent Film- released as a single on April 15th), which in turn falls into sublime lounge rock (Signs & Portents).
And all that’s really just for starters. Aided by esteemed compatriots like rising vocalist Alex Hulme, Native Tongue drummer Josh Williams, and respected composer Peter Byrom-Smith, it’s an expansive collection to say the least. More so, it’s one that’s set to cement This Morning Call’s reputation as an unarguably vital genre-straddling artist. Impressive, and that’s before we mention the closing number-cum-title track’s bleeps and beats dancefloor experiment…
