A 9 track electronic album (1h 2m 54s) — released March 8th 2019 on Other Records Ltd

A Man Called Adam's Sally Rodgers and Steve Jones are back with an album of brand new songs. Like their two previously released and much loved studio albums (The Apple and Duende) Farmarama is a genre-hopping collection of melodic, emotional pop-not-pop tracks that run the gamut the band's influences. From soulful slow jams to lo-fi disco, from deep house to dub and breakbeat, post-rock electronica and art-house ambience, the vinyl cut of Farmarama features 10 new tracks that retain the distinctive EMO Balearic sound familiar to their many fans, yet manages to pushes into new musical territories.

On Farmarama, Sally taps her DJ logic to deliver lo-fi dancefloor chuggers and lyrically tackles big subjects – addiction, loss, acceptance. References include French Symbolist poet Paul Valery and William Wordsworth in a song suite that considers life as a hi-definition, Westworld-like simulation – a Farmarama – and Disco as a design for life. Steve brings his mobile music expertise and acousmatic sensibilities to the sonic soup with apps, iPads, hacks and handmade synths, while musician and new collaborator Paul Smith adds jazzy licks, horns and catchy riffs. Live bass, percussion and saxes add acoustic sparkle to an album that, like all AMCA's best-loved works, looks for the silver lining in difficult times. Reflecting both their love of windswept beaches, mountains, lakes and waterfalls (the album was recording in various scenic locations including West Cornwall and the Lake District), and their love for, and loyalty to, the global electronic dance community, Faramarama is Balearic to the bone.
