Article number: MG2
Mike Granditsky’s second solo album MG2 is produced and co-written by David Lindh from Swedish indie legends Yvonne, and Granditsky’s songs have never sounded quite as grand as this before. The protruding bassline of the opening track “Speed Street” sets the tone for an album that seems to try to catch the atmosphere of The City in a suite of nine strong songs. Titles like “Glamourama”, “Subterreanean City”, “The Nightslider” and “In Search of the European” can be interpreted as a preoccupation/fascination with urban life in Europe, lyrically combined with soundscapes verging on the epic.
In his music Mike Granditsky remains true to where the heart is: deep rooted in soul, post punk, Roxy Music, Ultravox (the John Foxx era), PIL, Magazine, also touching the sharp edges of noise music. He has never intended to stay locked up in shackles that calls for specific haircuts, one set of instruments and narrow influences. He embrace soul, kraut, new wave, and has continuously allowed diverse elements to trickle into his music. Mike Granditsky released his first solo album MG in 2012.
