Bristol Manor "Going Nowhere" new album live

Hey everyone - I'm very pleased and excited to announce my new Bristol Manor album was released today on streaming and bandcamp. Please have a listen & let me know what you think - links below.

A tiny bit about the album: All ios as usual (except for some minor mastering in Adobe Audtion on desktop). This one marked a bit of a turn in that I used Nanostudio2 to produce 9-10 of the tracks. (4 others in Garageband, & 1 Gadget track). I've really grown to like Nanostudio2 over the past several months. I used alot of the built-in effects and synth - but there's also a bit of Synthmaster 1 & 2 and a few other ios synths. (Factory, Reason, Groovebox).

@richardyot, @SpookyZoo, @Daveypoo - would love to hear your thoughts as usual. (no early release for you this time @Daveypoo :)) And @richardyot - I used a couple of your Factory presets, and a few of your Obsidian presets on this album ... so thanks! Your presets are great!

  • Congratulations, I can’t wait to give this a listen as I really like your stuff!

    And yes, NS2 is awesome. If only it had audio tracks though, because as a singer it’s a bit of a pain to use without them. Having said that I do still like to use it for composing.

    I’ll listen to the album and report back tomorrow (hopefully).

  • Damn - I liked being the only guy out there with the sneak peek at your latest album.

    Jamming the first track now - great stuff, as per usual but it's what I've come to expect from you. As I'm sure I've mentioned ad nauseum here - this isn't the style I typically reach for, but I do really dig your stuff. Well done, yet again.

  • Nice work! I used the Apple Music to play through most of the tracks. Excellent production and mixing technique.

    thanks @Daveypoo For some reason - I've had that "not usually my style of music, but I really like this" comment come up several times over the years.

    I'm an active listener so I tend to go for active music - upbeat tunes, dance, pop, rock, jazz, fusion - stuff that forces you to listen closely and pay attention. Things that are more downbeat tend to lose my attention (this is a gross oversimplification of course, but hopefully you get the idea). What I like about your music is that I can hear the composition of it - your tunes have a beginning, middle and end. They are thought through and focused, and while they might lean a bit more on the atmospheric end they don't ever drift off into the sonic Stratosphere and lose direction - I can still hear the "song" in them and that's what keeps me engaged.

  • So I gave this a spin in my car and it’s fantastic. Great work!!!!

    Thanks for your thoughts - that’s great! (Although I like the thought of making more stuff that does “drift off into the sonic stratosphere”!!)

    Thank you - if it passes the “cruising in car” test then that’s all good with me!!

  • I'm half-way through the album now, and so far it's great. It's not quite as dark as some of your previous releases but it's still brimming with atmosphere, terrific bass lines, great melodies and excellent sound design. Great stuff.

  • Good stuff! Congrats on the release.

    Thanks! True - I do spend some time coming up with my basslines! Hope you enjoyed the rest. Did you spot your presets?

    Thanks Spooky! Hope you’re doing well - seems like you’ve been a bit quieter around here lately..

  • Enjoyed that, thanks !

    To be honest I didn't think to listen out for them, but I will be listening to the album again later today so I will try and keep and ear out for them :)

    I've had a couple more listens and I have to admit I can't spot my presets, I just get swept up in the music, which is a good thing!

    I really love everything about this album, great atmospheres and really interesting melodic music. It really deserves more love from the forum IMO.

    Thanks again! The reception has been really great for this album (from those who’ve heard it 😃).
    I feel it’s my strongest album overall. I really miss Tim/Discchord though - it doesn’t feel the same releasing an album without him posting it along with a few words...
