Album Release PR:

On the 9th day of April, 2012, Auckland powerpop, psych trio Dictaphone Blues unleash to the world a new offering. ‘Beneath The Crystal Palace’. Their second album and the follow up to their stunning debut ‘On The Down And In’. A psychedelic pop dreamscape with tales of friendship, heartache, technological armageddon and inner peace.

Released on Banished From The Universe and distributed via EMI, Beneath The Crystal Palace has been 3 years in the making.

Jangling pop melodies, snarling guitars, spacey, lazy tambourines and the psychedelic clatter combine to make a powerful album featuring the #1 alt airplay single ‘Cliché’ and new single ‘Radio Heart’.

Beneath The Crystal Palace was recorded in The Mt Eden Gentlemen’s Club, a converted studio which was formerly a swinging 1920s dance hall. Steeped in history and pulsing with character, the location was fitting as the Auckland based trio hunkered down in the punishing winter of 2011, burrowed deep and creating songs from the comfort of their dressing gowns and slippers. It also features vocal injections from friends throughout the record, including Princess Chelsea, Jonathan Brunette, Lawrence Arabia, Ryan McPhun (Ruby Suns), Jacob Moore (The Checks), Lee Devenish and The Unfaithful Ways.

The band’s debut album On The Down And In featured 4 top 20 alt airplay singles Spooky Room, Lantern, Taken Aback and You Put It In Me.
