I am very excited to announce the release of the new REICHELT album GLASS BOTTOM BOAT under my label HUMAN RECORDS. The new 10 track album will be released one track a month and the 1st single ‘The Taxidermy Has To Stop’ is out NOW. I had the pleasure of not only performing on this album with my best friend Luke Reichelt, but co-producing, co-mixing and co-mastering haha it with him along with Daniel Hitzke & Ian Peres.
If you don’t want to wait 10 months, the FULL physical album is available for purchase right now.
The new Reichelt album ‘Glass Bottom Boat’ is his 4th and has just been announced with the first single ‘The Taxidermy Has To Stop’ available now at reicheltmusic.com courtesy of indie Australian label Human Records.
Reichelt is an Australian solo artist, producer & multi-instrumentalist. He’s been writing, recording and performing fiercely original songs for over 10 years. Described as “quirky, eclectic and emotive” Reichelt’s music tugs at the heart, with hand-crafted arrangements and addictive melodies. His music is sometimes compared to The Cure, Bright Eyes and David Bowie.
The new record brings back the distinctive Reichelt distorted guitar and has tinges of punk rock flavour. The core of Reichelt’s music remains the same, with a strong focus on clever lyrics and soaring melodies. Laden with a wide variety of instruments from piano accordion to steel drum, rich with edgy guitars and synths and once again co-produced with long-time collaborator, Guy Cooper from Serotonin Productions.
‘The Taxidermy Has To Stop’ addresses lyrically, the inner resistance to change and musically is an up beat, new wave, punk tune. Mystical elements creep in with Wolfmother collaborator Ian Peres providing synth and drum support.
A new single from ‘Glass Bottom Boat’ will be released each month. If you can’t wait, you can also purchase the full physical CD (containing lyric booklet) from reicheltmusic.com. Live shows will be scheduled soon, but in the meantime sign up to the mailing list for a free copy of his previous epic album ‘Books on Tape’, live and music videos are also on his website.

All of Reichelt’s albums preceding ‘Glass Bottom Boat’ follow a theme of love found, love lost and everything between. His work consistently articulates complex feelings effortlessly and with lyrical wit. Hopeful and in despair, each album is a mixed bag of lollies. His career has taken him around Australia and Japan and won international song writing awards.
