ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
PRESS QUOTES:

"Mailman carries on the legacy of Dave Grohl" - Alternative Nation

"A bold concept album that tackles duality and subconsciously commands listeners to dive deeper than the surface to dissect their inner worlds and intentions." - Tattoo.com

"Mailman doesn’t mince words, his song lyrics are straight to the point. We are partial to the songs “Nothing In The Way” and "Through The Day” and wish there were more songs out there like “Broken Wing Cycle, an avant-garde, fast-paced rocker." - West Coast Rocker

"Stanley’s voice soars above the clean and catchy arrangements. Even on the uncharacteristically peppy “Owe it to My Heart” (which sounds a bit like prime-era Electric Light Orchestra minus the extra instrumentation) there’s a unified vibe that holds the album’s 20 songs together nicely." - MusoScribe

"Mailman takes a few more queues than just Floyd and Genesis - most of them from the English side of the pond. With the two mentioned permeating his prog inclinations (“Operetta”, “Dear Darkness”), his more pop-oriented material draws comparisons to the likes of Squeeze (“Frontiers”) and Depeche Mode (“Searchlight”). Also, throughout the double sides, you realize that Stanley obviously cherishes Bowie’s “Diamond Dogs” album. But he has obviously taken a few listens to more rocking purveyors like Pearl Jam (“LittleJohn”)." - Sputnik Music

ARTIST QUOTES:

"Duality is everything and everywhere. Social media, for example, is a two headed beast, simultaneously breaking down barriers by connecting people while also herding people into dangerous cliques and echo chambers. I wanted to say something about that with this record. No-one is immune from these paradoxes and contradictions. Some days I want to dismantle the system. Some days I want to binge watch dross on Netflix... it all co-exists and intertwines, no matter how divided things are made to appear." - Mailman

LINER NOTES:

All tracks written, performed, mixed, arranged and produced by Jamie Stanley (aka: Stan / Mailman) except the bassline on Come What May (performed by Colin Farley). Mastered by Mandy Parnell at Black Saloon Studios. Cirque De Silly, Never Be Safe and Sovereignty contain excerpts from royalty free audience member recordings of several publicly given political speeches. Album artwork by Jamie Stanley (contains elements of works by artists Luis Bello Corona and Lucas Motta Valerio).
