Me, Me, Me and Him: The Secret Life Of A Receptionist makes use of both bass heavy electronic production and lo-fi hip hop from some of the countries leading beatsmiths, such as M-Phazes , BVA, Urban Monk and Doc Felix, to showcase a persona that is reassuringly normal, all the while maintaining a tone of down-to-earth honesty and originality.
“I’m releasing my album called ‘Me me me and him: The Secret Life of a Receptionist’ on Sep 17th. I’m gigging in Melbourne on September 18th (Miss Libs) and 24th (First Floor).
