Loch Mhor release a new album, entitled ‘Mucho Ditto’.

Available to download, the nine tracks are the work of David Richards, a US-based Scots musician living in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

The album retains some influences from its creator’s homeland – ‘High Tide’ is “about the Fox River bursting its banks and floating me back to the river Clyde” while ‘Murder on Pitfour St.’ was written in Dundee.

Now based in De Pere, Richards formed a five-piece band in Minneapolis in 1995, and now plays with The Town Criers as well as acoustic trio Gil Sans.

With some extra time on his hands – “thanks 2020” he says – he recorded a new collection of original material at his home studio before the final recording and mixing was done at Hinnendael Studios last autumn.

Richards performs most of the instruments and vocals on the recordings apart from vocals by Maria Hinnendael, plus piano and lead guitar from Jeff Hinnendael.

Of the album, the Glaswegian musician says: “(It) reflects the current situation in the world, “where every day is the same-old-same-old.

“I’m actually proud of every song. They time travel me to another world or mood or moment.”
