In stores Aug 14th through MGM, Adelaide 5 piece Special Patrol are proud to present their new album The Strangers Dozen. The follow up to their sophomore long player Handy Hints From The Undertaker, The Strangers Dozen was recorded at Eastern Bloc Studio in Melbourne with producer/engineer Jonathan Burnside.
The Strangers Dozen picks off where Handy Hints left off, but says front man Myles Mayo: “we wanted the album to have a consistent sound this time. With Handy Hints we recorded it and mixed it in a half dozen different studios and wrote it in two very separate halves, so this time we wanted to see what it was like to record the whole thing with one person – Jonathan Burnside. The result is an album that we feel has a distinct sound from start to finish”
In true Special Patrol form, The Strangers Dozen is devastatingly intuitive; radiant, full bodied, darkly undertoned and yet simultaneously bright eyed. From the street pop swagger of Ordinary Life and sultry lilt of In Between You and Me to the inferred resolution of My Reason – this is a record that sees Myles Mayo and co back in full splendoured swing.
