TUNE Aldous RH - Since 1992
Signs to Moshi Moshi
Announces Release of Debut Album ‘Respect 4 Devotion’ out Friday 29th May
Aldous RH, aka Al Robinson, the release of his debut album ‘Respect 4 Devotion’. The album will be released by Moshi Moshi on Friday 29th May 2020.
To celebrate the release, Aldous RH shares first single ‘Since 1992’. Al explains, “Lyrically we're talking about looking for true love, with some trials and tribulations along the way”. The track is accompanied by a video which Al adds, “mainly serves as an homage to RNB video directing. The idea behind the clock is to show that time can heal almost any wound of the heart. And of course some believe the zodiac to serve as an oracle for relationship compatibility - how true that rings I cannot say. Henceforth I believe the potential for the zodiac to find you your soul mate is merely down to the time elapsed in your search for them & for me personally I was born in 1992, so it all began on that day.”
Adana born Manchester raised Al Robinson specialises in a languid style of bittersweet funk music, spurred on by the blue eyed soul of 70's icons Todd Rundgren & Daryl Hall besides taking heavy influence from the legends of poetic groove; Curtis Mayfield, Stevie Wonder & the brothers Isley.
A former touring musician with Los Angeles psych-pop outfit Drugdealer, starlet Charlotte Gainsbourg and New Zealand's iconic Connan Mockasin, RH remains a prolific and determined figure in Manchester’s musical scene, often seen collaborating & performing with The Birthmarks, The Foetals and Duds.
In his debut LP 'Respect 4 Devotion', he unveils the Timbaland flavoured 'Since 1992', Jazz fusion inflected 'Better 2' and sorrowful pop ditty 'Jaded Lovers', featured on the LP amongst others are pianist John Carroll Kirby (Solange, Sebastian Tellier), drummer Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint) and guitarist Alex Brettin (Mild High Club).
