Dave Dobbyn, Harmony House (2016)
I was right on board when this album came out – reviewed the album even got to sit down and talk for a couple of hours with DD for the podcast. I’m a huge fan of Dave Dobbyn’s music – and this was his first album after a (long) 8-year gap. And then there it is – another set of magical songs. These ones a bit more brooding, perhaps laboured over a little longer, but a great team formed with Dobbyn using Sam and Luke of The Phoenix Foundation as co-producers (and players). I was slow to getting the vinyl – but I’ve been playing it a lot over summer, reinforcing the fact that this was one of my albums of the year – easily one of my favourites of 2016.
