Tensheds new album, »Deathrow Disco« sees the award-winning artist explore a whole new instrument - the Rhodes organ. Apart from his beloved 1835 Collard & Collard grand piano, the entire record was recorded on Rhodes organ. No guitars, basses, or any of the traditional tools used to make gritty garage blues music were used in making this record. Instead Tensheds masterfully explores the use of pedals and prepared piano technique to create these hard hitting sounds.
Recorded in just 3 days at Free House Studios with long standing drummer and collaborater Ed Wells, along with engineer Sam Dyson. Tensheds set out to make a fun and danceable record. Something not often associated with piano music. Explaining that »the music had to be upbeat and fun, because the lyrics were not«. As the title suggests, the album does touch on the subject of incarceration, but more than that, Tensheds wanted to explore the idea that we are in fact all prisoners; whether we are prisoners stuck on a planet we are slowly destroying, or prisoners of love and loss.«
