Neil Hannon, one of the country’s foremost songwriters, releases a wonderful new Divine Comedy album Office Politics. It’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. “It has synthesizers. And songs about synthesizers,” Neil says. “But don’t panic. It also has guitars, orchestras, accordions, and songs about love and greed.” But ‘Office Politics’ central characters are the machines. Or ‘Infernal Machines’ as one track rages.
