1 - CARR, MARTIN - NEW SHAPES OF LIFE - (CD) 
TAPETE


NEW SHAPES OF LIFE is the third album Ive made under my own name and my second for Tapete Records. My last LP, THE BREAKS, dealt with my feelings of separation from the world around me. The music was simple, guitars, organs, and drums, but somehow it left me feeling even more dissatisfied than when I started writing it. This time I wanted to swim deeper, catch the bigger fish that lurk in the depths, waiting to be found.I had spent much of 2015 in my studio trying to write songs for pop stars, getting nowhere and feeling useless, when David Bowie died. I abandoned my writing and immersed myself in his records, films and biographies. I did nothing else for weeks. The records are great, of course, but what I took from Bowie was the responsibility of the Artist, how important it is to express oneself through a chosen medium. I was wasting my time scrabbling around in the dirt for pennies, making myself more and more miserable. I reflected on how many years I'd wasted chasing smoke and mirrors, living the life of an artist but neglecting the art.

3 - CARR, MARTIN - THE BREAKS - (CD) 
TAPETE


Martin Carr was the main songwriter of The Boo Radleys. He was the force behind their position as stars of Alan McGee's Creation Records, their chart hits and NME front covers. Tapetes roster is large and varied: lots of local bands, but also some from the US, Scandinavia and Austria, plus, in Lloyd Cole and Bill Pritchard, a couple of hugely accomplished UK artists with deep history and maverick tendencies. Martin Carr fits that bill perfectly: a songwriter whose work is pop but not necessarily populist, and whose trajectory reveals an ambivalent relationship with conventional sensibilities. Indeed, its an issue he grapples with on one of The Breaks keynote songs: "Here I am swimming in the mainstream/I tell my friends I subvert it from within. I tell myself Im happy as I am."

TRACKLISTING: 01. Santa Fe Skyway 02. St. Peter In Chains 03. Mainstream 04. Mountains 05. Sometimes It Pours 06. Senseless Apprentice 07. How Can I Explain? 08. No Money In My Pocket 09. I Dont Think Ill Make It 10. Mandy Get Your Mello On 11. The Breaks
