Remixed one of my favourite tracks from last year, Au Revoir Simone's 'Somebody Who', for their upcoming remix album 'Spectrums' out via Moshi Moshi on Aug 25th.
Drums on this by none other than Sarah Jones of Hot Chip, recorded during sessions for my second record. Wonder drummer.
In November and December of last year I was playing guitar/bass/synths/piano on Christine and the Queens 's debut record, together with my brother Gabriel Stebbing aka Night Works, who also played all the above instruments and more on the album. Ash Workman produced and mixed it, and the first single from the album, Saint Claude, was released last month. Vive la France!
Yesterday I recorded legendary Trinidadian steel pan player Fimber Bravo on a couple of my new tracks. He's an amazing musician, and i'm really excited to have him playing on the album. Check out the record he released on Moshi Moshi ..
I'm currently on the road playing keyboard and guitar for Metronomy, snatching time here and there to add finishing touches to my second album. Today i'm in the tallest hotel in Hamburg recording vocals. Sweet view!
Really very very excited to reveal that we've been granted PRS Momentum funding to finish record no. 2 ... this scheme only started in 2013, and already some great artists have been given support to keep making awesome music. It's truly brilliant that something like this has been set up. Feeling very lucky ...

In addition to working on my new album, i've been helping French artist Christine & The Queens to record hers. The sessions so far have been with Ash Workman producing and me playing guitars/keys, making synth sounds and generally helping out.
Recording for my second album is well underway. The dream team of Charlie Alex March producing and Ash Workman mixing is back.
This time, however, we're doing things a bit differently. Whilst the last record was made entirely in bedrooms, this one involves studios too. That means live drums courtesy of Sarah Jones (Hot Chip, NYPC), and live instruments such as brass, guitars ...
I'm going to keep posting stuff up here as work progresses. Here's a load of pics from the sessions we've already done ...
