Ball Park Music’s frontman Sam Cromack, under his solo moniker My Own Pet Radio, is pleased to announce The Goodlum Tour in support of the release of his debut album ‘Goodlum’.
Don’t miss the intimate shows at Newtown Social Club in Sydney, on Thursday 12 November, Black Bear Lodge in Brisbane, on Saturday 14 November, and Northcote Social Club in Melbourne on Saturday 21 November.
"This is the first ever MOPR tour. The brand new line-up consists of great friends and even greater musicians. My best friend Ben Fahey joins on guitar/keys and another dear friend, Alex L'Estrange - who drummed on and mixed the record - will weirdly be tonking away on the bass. We're also super fortunate to have recruited the drumming tour de force that is Ryan Strathie (HKOH, Holy Holy, Andy Bull, Sans Parents). It's a real dream band."
‘Goodlum’ is set for release on Friday 25th September. The album stands to offer a fresh perspective to those already familiar with Cromack’s acclaimed songwriting. The record sees him returning to his beloved DIY studio to sift through years’ worth of demos, beats, samples and unfinished songs. The record shows him delving into new sonic ideas and unexplored songwriting territory; marrying his love of glitchy, downbeat electronic music with the unbridled humanity of acoustic instruments and real players. From the quiet poetic stylings of Elliott Smith to the rambling guitar solos of Neil Young; from the smouldering drum manipulations of Four Tet to the whispering wonders of Sparklehorse; ‘Goodlum’ sees Cromack touch base with his favourite influences in order to produce a sound truly his own.
‘No Great Mystery’ is the first single off the album gaining momentum through high rotation status on triple j, debuting at #14 on the AIR 100% Independent Radio Chart and scoring ‘Single of the Day’ status via The AU Review.
