Hallo, Hallo... what's all this then?

Woebot's got a new record out.

And it's a bit of a surprising move.

Guitars, drums... the basic tried-and-true rock instrumental line-up.

No more samples, unless he's sampling his own hand-played playing (I can't tell how exactly Hallo's put together, and was too taken aback to get into dissection mode).

But that's not all.

He's also...

Actually, I don't want to spoil the surprise, so why don't you just head over to the Woebot site where you can preview some of the tracks on Hallo and purchase the album.

It's a bold, unexpected move and he's pulled it off marvellously.

Closing the previous chapter, there's also The Riddle, a compilation of "the best of the last four years of Woebot tunes" available as a free download at Soundcloud


in other Matthew Ingram news: he also has the cover story on R. Stevie Moore in the new issue of The Wire

my favourite track on Ku Klux Glam
