PLM Announces New Michal Menert Album Even If It Isn’t Right

Set for Release on Pretty Lights Music Today, April 24th 2012 + Spring and Summer Tour Dates Announced Below

“Even If It Isn’t Right is some of the best music I’ve ever heard. It is emotionally moving throughout, while maintaining a style that can rock the hell out of a party, and in its entirety it is undoubtedly a beautiful and prolific masterwork of stellar sample collaging and brilliant musicianship.”
– Derek Vincent Smith of Pretty Lights

Michal Menert was the first artist signed to the record label Pretty Lights Music, with the release of his album Dreaming of a Bigger Life in the Spring of 2010. His sound combines obscure vintage samples from both Eastern European and Western vinyl with rich analog synthesis and organic hard hitting beats. It is a fusion of yesterday’s elements and tomorrow’s ideas. Michal’s second album, the mega-LP Even If It Isn’t Right is set for release on April 24, 2012.

About Even If It Isn’t Right, Michal Menert says:

“Since my last record, I have been adapting to a new way of life. I’ve made a lot of new friends, seen a lot of the world, and been blessed with the chance to bring music to life along the way. I’ve also lost touch with a lot of people I care about, been away from the comfort of home, and had to make quick decisions that end up affecting my future in big ways. The title of this record stems from that – from choices, actions, statements and even music that I’ve made in the last two years. I took these steps because they were what I thought was right, even if it wasn’t. Part of growing is accepting that you make mistakes, and learning from them. If you don’t make mistakes or fall down, you’re not trying hard enough. Even the 100+ minute running time of this album may not be ‘right’ by traditional standards, but it’s what I felt was needed to tell the story of my life since my last release. So, even if it isn’t right, this is life. If we own our choices, we can escape the pitfalls of guilt, regret, and imagining how it all could have been if only we had…”
