Autogramm’s third studio album, Music That Humans Can Play, is a hard one to pin down. It’s like as if David Bowie, The Fixx and Cheap Trick partied with Prince and recorded the whole thing. Most of the songs should probably be on the Fast Times At Ridgemont High soundtrack. For all the comparisons, it’s a shockingly unique, cohesive and refreshing album filled with new wave gems crafted with a power pop twist. Music That Humans Can Play was recorded in Vancouver BC during the heatwave of August 2022. Somehow, between visits to the beach, barbecues, and a newborn baby, the band laid down ten tracks at two sweaty studios on Vancouver’s Eastside. Music. The album was recorded by Mariessa McLeod and Joshua Wells at Rain City Recorders and The Balloon Factory in Vancouver, and later mixed by Joshua Wells at The Mango Pit in Chicago.
