Carry The Martyr Released In Full by Simeon Smith

Hey everyone, and a Happy New Year to the lot of you.

Since the end of the summer I’ve been working on an album, called CARRY THE MARTYR, releasing tracks as I go: No promo, no noise, just having fun in the studio and uploading stuff when it sounded kind of finished.

While I’ve totally loved producing the painstaking piano soundscapes of PENINSVLA and CELLS, I just wanted to make some fun music, with my heart, not my head. CARRY THE MARTYR hopes to be just that.

It got more attention than I expected and had some lovely radio support from Adam Thomas Walton at BBC Cymru Wales (thanks bro!).

Well, since breaking up for work before Christmas I’ve been working at ironing out creases and gluing the whole project together. It’s done and there’s 10 bloody tracks of the thing. While I often find my music hard-to-describe, not this album. This album is 100% house music. 120bpm, 4-to-the-floor from start to finish.

Listen and download for free here: carrythemartyr.bandcamp.com and it’ll be on Spotify et al soon.

And now, as a New Year’s present, it’s yours. I hope you enjoy it on your New-Years-Resolution runs, at your New-Years-Resolution gym sessions, and while scoffing 20 toblerones in your car sat on the driveway as you fail your New-Years-Resolution diet.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

(A note on project names: Every time I release music under a different name, I get the same questions: Are you not doing XXX music anymore? Has XXX band broken up? Is this a new XXX?… Nah, guys, it’s just a way of segmenting my increasingly ridiculous back-catalog. Plus, I loves me a new logo.)
