For our first release in over 2 years we are excited to present the latest album by Julian Pitt, aka Armstrong in conjunction with our Canadian friends, The Beautiful Music. To say that the release of Armstrong's “Happy Graffiti” album is highly anticipated and eagerly awaited by some of us would be a huge understatement.
Previous albums have received excellent reviews with Armstrong being compared to Aztec Camera/Roddy Frame, The Pearlfishers, Teenage Fanclub, Prefab Sprout, Lloyd Cole, Dream Academy and Trash Can Sinatras. Alex Green (Caught In The Carousel) wrote of Armstrong’s previous album: "Under Blue Skies is one of the most satisfying and melodic albums in recent memory…Armstrong’s lustrous debut presents Pitt as the new unheralded prince of pastoral pop. With a voice that lilts and soars like Roddy Frame or The Pearlfisher’s David Scott, Pitt is truly a splendid find.” Powerpopaholic stated about Songs About The Weather: “Fans of sunshine and baroque pop would do well to check out the latest album from Armstrong … If you enjoy wistful ballads and sun-kissed melodies that are brimming with emotion you’ll want to listen to Armstrong”
As with previous releases, the lush vocals and jangly, catchy guitar tunes will draw you into a warm and happy world of pop. We recommend you listen especially to “Eyes Wide Open”, “When We Were Young”, “This One” and “Rock Star Rock Star” to feel the love and dedication that has been put into the album by Julian!
We are very proud to finally, after many years, release this wonderful gem of an album and hope it brings you much joy.
For this album we teamed up again with the brilliant Canadian label, The Beautiful Music www.thebeautifulmusic.com a partnership we are very proud to involved with. Please Enjoy
