Remastered Clear Purple Vinyl LP Plus Bonus Orange 7" Vinyl!
Featuring Dave Matthews!

Before emerging as a solo artist, Mike Doughty was best known as the front man of the group Soul Coughing. In 2005, Doughty released his first solo effort to feature, Haughty Melodic, which contained stuido versions of several songs from earlier solo albums. Dave Matthews himself brought the record to the label (and appears on the track "Tremendous Brunettes"). The vinyl has been out of print, but now it has been remastered by ATO Records and Mike Doughty, and re-released with some extra music.

With his new album Haughty Melodic, Doughty returns to the spotlight. Tracks such as "Madeline and Nine," "Grey Ghost," "Busting Up a Starbucks," "His Truth Is Marching On" and "Sunkeneyed Girl" find Doughty's unique songs rendered in fully realized form, fleshed out with the help of a full band — the first the singer has recorded with since Soul Coughing split in 2000. Among the other melodically complex and emotive tracks on the new disc are the opener "Looking at the World from the Bottom of a Well," the yearning "White Lexus" and the radiant "Unsingable Name." ATO Records founder Dave Matthews makes a guest appearance, trading verses with Doughty on the rousing and amusing "Tremendous Brunettes."

Haughty Melodic was recorded in Minneapolis with producer Dan Wilson. The pair recruited a number of the Twin Cities' finest musicians to contribute to the album, instilling Doughty's songs with a colorful, ornamented sound that combined the melancholy and psychedelic. Wilson sings backup and plays keyboards on many tracks. Among the album's other contributors are cellist Jane Scarpantoni, multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily, bassist/trombonist John Munson and N.E.R.D. drummer Eric Fawcett.

The collaboration with Wilson began as a simple songwriting session. "I went to Dan's house in Minneapolis in December 2003 just to mess around with some tunes, write a little," Doughty explains. "We did a little demo of 'American Car,' very stripped-down and earthy, in Dan's home studio, and it just blew me away. So I resolved to talk him into producing my album, even though I had no record deal at the time, and no way to release a record other than the way I had been doing, selling them at my shows.
