CD: £13.99

Label: Blue Note

It has been described as “acoustic electronica”, which perfectly sums up the writing process. Man Made Object, like its predecessor, was recorded at Giant Wafer residential studios in Mid-Wales, and completed at 80hz in Newton Heath, Manchester, with engineering and production by Joe Reiser and Brendan Williams.
