"His beautifully dignified performance provides just the right amount of therapeutic release without tipping...into over-sentimentalism" - Pitchfork

"Mason's talent for conjuring up dream-like melodies and hypnotic rhythms is apparent on the tranquillising yet twinkling 'All Come Down'" - Drowned In Sound

Plus support from PETE UM one man tape-poet from Cambridge, UK, with sardonic humour, unreliable MD player and a bunch of weird electronic miniatures. When not depressed, he can be a great entertainer. Meanwhile, his music had been boosted by eccentrics such as Ariel Pink. Attempts to define his personality provoke his peers to phrases like...

...Um is an electro-dadaist pop star peddling audio anxiety and monomania from the digital kitchen sink
...Um is the glint in Delia Derbyshire's eye as she puts Kurt Schwitters and Julian Cope to the razor blade
...Absolute belter of oddball proportions

Former Beta Band front man STEVE MASON is one of the brit-pop generation’s few genuinely brilliant and original songsmiths. Having previously released music under the aliases King Biscuit Time and Black Affair, Steve Mason released his first album under his own name, Boys Outside, in March this year. In this new, stripped back setting of muted guitars and piano melodies, Steve Mason’s troubled lyrics are devastatingly direct. Much of The Beta Band sound is still present – the off-kilter melodies and electro influence – but this time the songs also offer an elegant blend of trilling piano, strummed guitar and crisp digital beats.

“The lovelier the music – in the swooshing, soaring chorus of The Letter, or the shimmering All Come Down – the more achingly fragile Mason sounds.” – The Guardian

“His beautifully dignified performance provides just the right amount of therapeutic release without tipping…into over-sentimentalism” – Pitchfork

“Mason’s talent for conjuring up dream-like melodies and hypnotic rhythms is apparent on the tranquillising yet twinkling ‘All Come Down'” – Drowned In Sound
