Monaural Machine releases a self-titled debut album.

Available to download, the nine-track instrumental electro long-player is the work of Edinburgh-based producer John McRitchie, who wrote and recorded the album between late December 2020 and February 2021 while furloughed, during the second Covid lockdown.

McRitchie describes the theme of the recordings as “mostly influenced by neo-futurism, trans-humanism, neo societal transformation, hacktivism, counter culture and dystopian artwork.”

The guitarist, programmer and producer is more rooted in rock-oriented sounds, having been part of Edinburgh four-piece Aperture some years ago, and more recently, contributing guitar to J Thurley’s Teethgrynder project.
