Neil Hannon, one of the countryâ€™s foremost songwriters, releases a wonderful new Divine Comedy album Office Politics. Itâ€™s the follow-up to the acclaimed top ten 2016 album Foreverland.
Office Politics is a 16 track tour de force full of inventive, timeless music peopled with a typically irreverent cast of characters. â€œIt has synthesizers. And songs about synthesizers,â€ Neil says. â€œBut donâ€™t panic. It also has guitars, orchestras, accordions, and songs about love and greed.â€ But â€˜Office Politicsâ€™ central characters are the machines. Or â€˜Infernal Machinesâ€™ as one track rages.
