Steve Mason
About The Light

The Beta Band are a distant image in the rear view mirror of Steve Mason these days. Following their break up he continued under the King Biscuit Time moniker before releasing Boys Outside (2010) under his own name. About The Light is his fourth solo album. Previously all of his solo albums have...view item »

The Beta Band
The Three EPs (20th Anniversary Remaster) [Deluxe Edition]

Noted for *that* moment in High Fidelity when the guy in the store says "let's sell some records" and puts a Beta Band track on and people start wandering up to the counter to find out what it is. It's a reminder that the early the Beta Band was a good thing - their reputation is based on these three early EPs. The fact that the...view item »

The Beta Band

The Beta Band’s eponymous debut LP turns twenty in 2019, so Because Music are preemptively reissuing the record. Though it wasn’t to everyone’s taste at the time it came out (including the band themselves), when heard now The Beta Band sounds ahead of the curve. The way these tracks ru...view item »

Steve Mason
Meet The Humans

Steve Mason of the Beta Band recorded this album with Craig Potter, best known as the producer and chap on the keyboards for Elbow. The follow up to Mason's ‘double political concept album’ ‘Monkey Minds In The Devil’s Time’ this is a more straightforward and accessible undertaking.

Steve Mason
Monkey Minds In The Devil's Time

This is my favourite record of 2013 and I listened to it non-stop most of the Summer. When a lot of people I know went crazy in the heat and bad luck of last year, this record kept me sane. The album works as a whole with some tunes being variations: using reprises and (dub style) 'versions'. Binding it altogether is ...view item »

Steve Mason & Emiliana Torrini
I Go Out

This 7” is a two-parter with a long song spread over two sides. It’s smooth gliding synthpop with a big ‘80s-styled sound kind of like I’d imagine early Human League might have sounded if they had the benefits of modern day DIY production tools. Dense, swirling indie-dance type s...view item »

Steve Mason & Dennis Bovell
Ghosts Outside

Steve Mason's 'Boys Outside' album from 2010 has been reworked by Dennis Bovell in a dub style. Why? I don't know. The original album was a pretty decent slice of Mason's lazy lollopy style where after many years of underachievement he finally got his ideas into some kind of order. It'...view item »

Steve Mason
Am I Just a Man?

It's quite hard to grasp this latest offering from Big Steve Mason as the song floats right past you, like a musical gas or a deft touch from a strange dirty man on a wind swept train platform. Its sounds solid though, and has production that one might deem workmanlike. It's not spilling all over the place, which is not a bad thing. The remixes ...view item »

Steve Mason
Boys Outside

Ah remember 2013? What a golden year that was. And if you were lucky it was soundtracked the baggy oddball pop of the Beta Band's Steve Mason. Mason is the sort of man who does his best to sound like an interesting Guy Garvey with polished considered pop and a few electronics hurled in. Now back out on viny...view item »
