Hanni El Khatib – Devil’s Pie (Picture Disc) (RSD)

Image: 1595371 Hanni returns after his triumphant album 'Moonlight' with the cover of D'Angelo for Record Store Day 2015.
On his 2011 debut Will The Guns Come Out, Hanni El Khatib tried something he’d never tried before—making a bedroomstyle
recording of his stripped brand of rock‘n’roll mostly for the sheer joy of making it. For his ferocious 2013 follow-up
Head In The Dirt, he tried something new again, enlisting Dan Auerbach as a producer.
But after Head In The Dirt’s release and almost a year of relentless touring, Hanni knew he needed to go past
‘unpredictable’ all the way to ‘unprecedented.’ He needed isolation, time and the chance to experiment. So after 30 days
locked in hand-picked L.A. studio The Lair, the result is the most receent album Moonlight—the rarest and most welcome
kind of album, made at that perfect point in life where confidence, experience, and technique unite to help an artist do
anything they want.
That’s why it starts with a song that sounds like a Mobb Deep beat under a Suicide-style synth drone and ends with an
ESG-meets-LCD Soundsystem gone italo-disco song about life and death. That’s why it collides crushing crate-digger
drumbeats that’d be right at home on a Can LP or an Eddie Bo 45 with bleeding distorto guitar, bent and broken barroom
piano and hallucinatory analog flourishes. Erhältlich ab 18.04.2015
