''Dear Satellite', the seventh album from Mull Historical Society, was produced by Grammy award-winning Don Morley, known for his work on Amy Winehouse's 'Back To Black', as well as working with Adele, Grinderman and Sting. He also produced Colin's first album on Xtra Mile Recordings, 'City Awakenings', released in 2012. 'Dear Satellite' is ten tracks of floating, positive, texturally diverse pop songs. The spring morning brightness spread across 'Sleepy Hollow' and 'This Little Sister' may leap you into optimistic, slightly cheerful abandon but 'Why Do They Go So Soon' wrings a little melancholy into the warmth. The odd off-key whistling underpinning the rhyming acoustic pop of 'Bones' meshes the weird elements you'd have expected from MHS of old, while the chiming synth-drive of 'The Ballad of Ivor Punch' reaches into indie rock circa 2005. 'All the Love Remains' and 'Each Other' captures the sweet and serious strumming that Mull Historical Society has made his own, while the album closes with the reflective, sky-and-soul-searching 'Farewell to Finisterre', continuing the seeming interest of Xtra Mile Recordings' bands in space and star gazing.
