"You’ve been in my mind" is the new album from Dave Graney and the mistLY. It is an album of short, whip-smart pop rock songs with lashings of ideas, flash,wit and bounce.
Recorded in January with engineer Andrew "idge" Hehir at Soundpark in Brunswick and mixed by Dave Graney at the Ponderosa, its the first collection of new graney songs since "knock yourself out" in 2009. Who better then to talk about the new album than the man himself;
" this bunch of songs was recorded quickly, just the way I like it. Its not about layers of sounds, its just
the simple setup of the band in the room and the songs. We knew them all pretty well so every song was put down to the machines with absolute certainty, power and poise. Its got all the flavours and tones about music that I've loved.They all came out in this session. . I guess the bedrock tone and attitude of my music is 70s rock. That's the west coast american sound in the vocals and my guitar and the r&b grooves and the jazz voicings of the chords. They are all the changes and tempos that come out of me, naturally. Its pretty upbeat and begins with a 2:40 second song calledblues negative that's over before you know it and doesn't let up".

When listening to the album you will be aurally pleasured by Dave Graney on electric 12 string guitar, Stuart Perera on left handed Rickenbacker, Clare Moore on drums and Stu Thomas on bass, with the whole gang singing.
You've Been In My Mind comes with three extra on the CD version. They are demo versions of songs as first put down by Dave Graney and Clare Moore. The digital version of the album doesn't have these
tracks but includes the earlier 2012 single "king of the dudes" and two remixes of older Dave Graney songs, "sometimes you can see yourself" from 2005 and "midnight to dawn" from 2003.The latter
features a cameo vocal from fellow traveller Henry wagons.
