Old friends Julian Bates and Alex Gray -- working together as Mighty Truth for the first time since 1995's From The City To The Sea -- filled a car with old analogue synths, kids' noise toys, and collected field recordings, took a road trip down to hole up in an old water mill in southwest England's bird-twittery, bee-loud Quantock hills. Things got cinematic: unequal measures of early Weather Report, Wim Wenders, and Serge Gainsbourg kept them wonderfully lost in their imagined world. Back in London with guest singers Allonymous (Paris via Chicago) and Wayne Paul (London), they completed the album and decided to just call it Mighty Truth. With an aim to present the live show at moonlight pop-up cinema venues, Mighty Truth are here for the next chapter in their epic saga. Julian Bates and Alex Gray first met through their shared obsession with classic cars. At the time, Julian's band Nightrains was signed to ACE Records in the UK whilst Alex worked first as a session keyboardist for the likes of Edwyn Collins, Billy Mackenzie, and Busta "Cherry" Jones, and later as a mixer and remixer working with S'express producer Pascal Gabriel, Malcolm McLaren, and soul DJ legend Dr Bob Jones. Working together in the studio for the first time producing Vanessa Freeman, Alex and Julian decided to embark on a drop-tempo jazz trip project they named Mighty Truth. Pressing of 200 copies on clear vinyl. RIYL: Zero 7, Plaid, Hot Chip, Weather Report, Isolee, Baby Fox.
