"Automation Baby" is a huge success for Mesh: it hit the german Media-Control-Charts at position 33, on the German Electronic Webcharts it went straight to the top position. But it is not only Germany where Mesh are quiet successful: they entered the European Alternative Charts on Position 1 whereas the new Depeche Mode Album "Delta Machine" is on seven. And also the press was quite excited about the album:
It’s much like re-acquainting oneself with a dear old friend every time Mesh puts out a new album. Few bands retain such a pleasant atmosphere. Mark Hockings and Richard Silverthorn stay firmly in comfort zone on “Automation Baby” and fans will have a hard time resisting the power of the vibrant songs on it.One might argue that not much have changed in the Mesh camp. But it needs to be said that no one in the scene does it better
Reflections of Darkness
'Automation Baby' shows MESH at a peak in their career. It is the perfect blend of what defined them back in the days and what is today. It all results in a modern and clearly not one-dimensional electro pop sound that other bands would kill for.
Peek a boo
After a few sessions I can say this album is a major hit! It has the energy, it feels sad when needed, angry when needed... It all feels so true and to conclude this intro: sounds like we all would love that the new Depeche Mode would sound like! I know from the first time I saw Mesh on stage that some people were saying it was a Depeche Mode rip-off, but the rip-off nowadays sounds better than the original... Mesh is after this album for sure delivering already one of the best albums of this year!

Ghost & Writers second album „Red Flags“ has turnt into an acoustic-electronic Film Noir. Musical short stories centering around characters driven by despair are forming a sharp contrast to the bright electronic aesthetic from Frank Spinath and his Belgium counterpart Jean-Marc Lederman.
Before the album is available on April 5th, through retail, there will be an impressive teaser-trailer (to stay in the cinematic language): Only until the album release, the single “Never Take fire” will be available on the website of Dependent for free. Simultaneously this single will also be available in a limited number (68 handsigned and numbered copies available only) in the Dependent Shop. Because of the high quality of this advance single, it will be available on regular download platforms digitally after April 5th.
