Gargleblast Records are extremely proud to announce the release of The Other Half of Everything, the outstanding debut solo album from Scottish songwriter Martin John Henry (ex De Rosa).
Working for over a year with producer Andy Miller (Mogwai, Life Without Buildings, Scout Niblett), Henry has emerged with his most progressive, ambitious and accessible album to date. Sung, plucked and synthesised with painstaking care, the 11 tracks of The Other Half of Everything have a sound and scope that evokes the epic landscape of the cover art, while occasionally dipping into the poetic suburban folk that De Rosa fans adore.
Selected press for Martin John Henry's songwriting...
“Beautifully captures an idyllic nation immersed in fragile contradiction” - The Skinny
“Insidiously compelling contemporary prog-pop” - The Scotsman
"The kind of parochial majesty you might encounter if The Pixies reworked The Go-Betweens "Before Hollywood" for a documentary about the social history of Lanarkshire. Yes, that good." - Mojo
released 10 October 2011
Martin John Henry - vocals, guitar, bass guitar, drums, synthesiser, keyboards, piano, programming
James Woodside - mandolin
Susan Appelbe - cello
Produced and engineered by Andy Miller at Gargleblast Studios, UK.
