Amrap's AirIt | Australian Music Radio Airplay Project :: Rock :: Michael Cullen - Nothing Special

Michael Cullen - Nothing Special

Michael Cullen - Nothing Special
Nine new songs recorded on tape, mostly at Space Junk III and Studios 301 in Sydney between 2010 and 2013 and mostly written in a burst in 2010/11. Co-produced by Michael and Tim Powles (of the Australian masters of guitar atmospherics, The Church).

Five songs, Black Dog, Cha Cha Cha d'Amour, 'Black Coffee and Cigarettes, Broken Horses and Believer, were mixed by Danton Supple (Morrisey, Coldplay) in his London studio, Definition Arts.

True Believer is a compelling and hypnotic listening experience. Built around Michael Cullen's resonant baritone, which is deeper and richer than ever. The music draws from Stax, Mowtown, New Wave and 80s British pop as well as Michael’s often cited influences of Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave, Ian Curtis and Tom Waits.

True Believer, has a lot to live up to. The promise of Michael’s debut finds space via the noir tinged, rain soaked Chandleresque entrance of ‘Black Dog’ and the desert canyon wanderings of ‘Believer’. Aided by the alt country / classicc rock stylings of ‘Black Coffee and Cigarettes’ and the Berlin studio feel of ‘Cha Cha Cha d’Amour’ this record delivers emphatically on that promise.

About this track...

This track highlights Michael’s Lou Reed influences and has one of the best chorus' on the record. The collaboration with producer, Tim Powles (the Church) makes it one of the standout tracks on the record.
