It's out! Released as an album of Bloodwitch, a favourite band of Stanley, one of the main characters of the series "I Am Not Okay With This". It seems that in real life Bloodwitch are just Graham and Tatyana Richaud. All songs written by Graham Coxon :-)

Sounds so good. And this thread definitely deserves ANNOUNCEMENTS status. Damon´s project has it, although it may not have been written yet :-)

Hi it’s me sushi! I haven’t posted in a while but I’ve been lurking this whole time. Anyway, I have decided to come out of hiding because this record derseves attention. Not only did it seemingly come out of nowhere, it is f**king GOOD. Like... you know that one song on a new record that makes you almost neglect the rest of it because it’s so amazing? There’s like 7 of those.

I'm definitely okay with this! Just listened to a few snippets and it sounds nice.
EDIT: and so does the full album!

Eh, I like a few songs, but it sounds very "dumbed down" to me. Most of the songs sound lazy, slow, repetitive. Definitely does NOT sound like a Coxon album, perhaps that's the point.

To me it sounds like slower outtakes from A+E, which in my opinion is a brilliant record and I am totally ok with this. It's as if 'The Truth' had a bunch of babies.

It's obvious that it can't sound like him. Is not a Graham coxon´s album, is a soundtrack of a series. For me is brilliant, like everything He does. A really talented man.

I think Graham has done some really great work with these soundtracks. Probably some of his best.

Hello folks, could I possibly be directed to some highlights of Graham's soundtrack type work? I haven't kept track of it. For example, for Monkey I would say "Heavenly Peach Banquet". For Dr Dee I would say "Apple Carts". Etc.

The older I get, the more obvious it becomes that Graham's musicianship elevated a lot of Blur material from "lovely melody" to "absolutely bloody brilliant". For example - Badhead.
