MORCHEEBA plays 4th & B downtown San Diego on Saturday April 12th
"NEW ALBUM 'DIVE DEEP' OUT 4.2.08
Having sold 6 million albums, toured the world over, plumbed the depths of nervous exhaustion, and pushed their working relationships to breaking point, Morcheeba return with their new album Dive Deep, an ³emotional blueprint² which has restored their faith in music.
Morcheebaıs refusal to be categorised musically extends to the bandıs set-up, and in 2008, these pioneers of song-based dance music have become an eclectic and open-minded collective. The thoughts and experiments of brothers Paul and Ross Godfrey provide the blueprint, with the songs mainly co-written in the studio with guest vocal collaborators, most of who were sought out via myspace and the internet.
Guests on Dive Deep range from established names such as acclaimed singer-songwriter Judie Tzuke, to relative newcomers Thomas Dybdahl from Norway, rapper Cool Calm Pete, and Manda, a French singer who contacted the Godfreys via Myspace, admitting it was her dream to sing with Morcheeba.
Lead track Enjoy The Ride features Judieıs soulful voice, which has enchanted Paul since childhood, and One Love Karma sees Cool Calm Pete incorporate the worldıs first ever recorded fluteboxing * a human beatbox through a flute. Riverbed and Sleep On It show off Thomas Dybdahlıs impressive Roy Orbison like vocal range, and together, the collaborations provide an atmosphere of genuine fluidity and free-form exploration."
