Graceful melodies, soaring choruses and intimate warmth are all things that can be found in abundance on Roddy Frame's new album 'Seven Dials', his first in eight years. Released on Edwyn Collins' AED Records, the LP is the Aztec Camera man's fourth solo offering and was released earlier this week (May 5). The boldly catchy country-flavoured stomp 'Forty Days Of Rain' is one of the highlights of this charming new collection of songs, which according to Flipside Reviews "positively romps past the winning post". Read their 10/10 review of the album HERE. Meanwhile The Line Of Best Fit state in THIS review that "this, for any lover of the cracked ballad, the pop hit, the smart word or the perfectly chosen chord, is essential." Other high points of 'Seven Dials' include the West Coast cool of 'Postcard', the sad beauty of 'In Orbit' and the heart grabbing emotional pull of 'The Other Side'.
