Schematic - Color (n.) Inside the Lines

Former MAE frontman Dave Elkins has made his new solo album Color (n.) Inside the Lines available for streaming via his Schematic SoundCloud channel prior to its public release tomorrow. MAE fans that have been following Dave’s progress on the release through his indiegogo funding campaign and his new multi-dimensional/multi-disciplinary studio/management/label/community project Schematic know to expect more of the same catchy, poppy goodness that fueled his former band—lush soundscapes, layers upon layers of vocal harmonies, and interesting time signatures. There are more electronica elements this time around, but they serve to enhance the songs rather than to monopolize the listener’s attention.

I’ve only given it a cursory listen except for the tracks Dave had already given us sneak peeks of, but I think I’m already sold. I plan to plop down my hard-earned cash when it hits the digital download outlets tomorrow morning, and I’ll probably still be bobbing and dancing in my cube like I have for the last hour. Not very metal, huh?!

Give it a listen, and if you like it, purchase Color (n.) Inside the Lines when it becomes available.

More Dave Elkins goodness. Here’s the first track from his upcoming Color (n.) Inside the Lines album. It sounds quite a lot like his work with MAE, meaning it’s excellent.

Have we reached the end just to find the beginning again?

Olly olly oxen free. New Dave Elkins goodness via Schematic.
