You have to be really self-confident to release a 22-song album that lasts almost an hour and a half. Fortunately, this is about Tim Burgess, who did just that, delighting his many fans.
A cult musician, The Charlatans frontman, writer and one of the most popular users on Twitter has already made quiteafewsoloreleases in the 2000s. However, none of them has yet been such a monster (in a good sense) as Typical Music.
On his new record, Tim decided not to disregard any new musical idea, carefully working through and completing each track. And because he has a true talent for writing near-perfect pop songs, what we end up with here is a truly gigantic record full of hits.
It doesn’t make much sense to parse Typical Music into singles or individual tracks, it’s a real adventure that you can enjoy by going through it completely – from beginning to end. The perfect treat for all existing fans, and also a great way to get to know the amazing musician for the first time.

Now it is time for the new record. No announcements have been made just yet, but we already have a lovey first single “Here Comes The Weekend”. It is unleashed with a playful and fun music video, directed by Kevin Godley.

If you like your pop music weird, Cheater by Pom Poko is an album for you.
Experimental, inventive, chaotic and yet quite accessible, the new LP shows the Norwegian band at top form, making uniquely structured, at times surreal and smart songs, that are full of hooks and unexpected turns.
