  • Hickoids – Hairy Chafin’ Ape Suit

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1589854 Rush release! - The legendary Austin cowpunk combo Hickoids are promoting their current new album live in Europe these days!

    O r i g i n a l i n f o :
    This long-promised long player from the Hickoids has taken on a kind of mythical quality over the last quarter century or so. Hairy Chafin’ Ape Suit delivers on every broken promise - going down like a throat-scalding shooter of garage-rock attitude, Tex-Mex boogie groove and lysergic delirium.
    In this way, the album (due August 20, 2013, via Saustex Media) traces the same crooked path as 2011's hugely entertaining cover-packed Kicking It With the Twits — only this time, the stories of shocking misfortune, blatant dumbassery and self-inflicted hardship (be that from booze, women or one another) take on a more personal bent. And a funnier one, too.
    Fronted by vocalist Jeff Smith, the Hickoids storm through these 10 tracks with a twin-guitar attack courtesy of Tony Trusnovic and Davy Jones, alongside eruptive rhythms from bassist Rice Moorehead and Slowpoke Farley. Ultimately, it becomes a testament not just to their swinging tire iron-level ferocity, but also to their fearless sense of musical adventure. The Hickoids are just as apt to touch on boozy honky tonk (the hilarious “If Drinking Don’t Kill Me, Kill Me,” “Side by Side Doublewides”) as they are Texas fusion (“Cool Arrow”), as apt to ramp up into a blistering heartland anthem (“Working Man’s Friend”) as they are grease-popping Southern soul (“Mo Hair”).
    As with most projects that have such a long gestation period, Hairy Chafin’ Ape Suit includes a tip of the hat to earlier Hickoids incarnations. “TJ,” for instance, is based in part on a track from Smith and original member Pepe Lopez. “Fruit Fly” was initially done by Lopez’s band Loco Gringos. And there’s a straight line to be drawn from the cowpunk brawn of tracks like “Talking Hot Pants Blues” to their late bassist Dick Hays, as well.
    - “the legendary Austin cowpunk combo may be older and wiser - but they still don’t give a fuck.” - Greg Beets, Blurt
    - “This long-promised long player from the Hickoids has taken on a kind of mythical quality over the last quarter century or so. Hairy Chafin’ Ape Suit delivers on every broken promise — going down like a throat-scalding shooter of garage-rock attitude, Tex-Mex boogie groove and lysergic delirium.” - Nick DeRiso, Something Else Reviews
    - “The Hickoids are better than ever” - --- Kevin McGovern, Fear & Loathing in Long Beach
    - “Their stomping, sun-scorched, and simmering Tex-Mex, cowpunk and boogie rock is more sharply honed than in their thrashier, off- the-rails ‘85-’92 heyday.” - Big Takeover

    The album consists of ten songs culled from a batch of literally hundreds of songs that Adam Greenspan and Nick Launay (producer The Bad Seeds, Yeah Yeah, Yeahs) helped sorting through. Long time collaborators Sophia Burn (bass), Raife Burchell (drums), Daniel Raishbrook (guitar) and new member Uberto Rapisardi (hammond organ) help create a rich musical backdrop for lead singer Finn Andrews' songs. Time Stays, We Go shows The Veils at the very height of their creative powers so far, deftly combining two distinct sides of their personality, or as Andrews calls it, "The Pop & The Snarl".

  • Zomes – Time Was

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1579465 Time Was marks a new stage in the evolution of Zomes. The album marks the first recordings of Zomes as a duo and the first time an album was recorded in a studio and not on a cassette deck. It all began when Asa Osborne was performing at the Perspectives Festival in Sweden, where he met Hanna through a mutual friend in the Skull Defekts. During Osborne’s performance, Hanna, a vocalist, ended up improvising along with the music with stunning results. Realizing the complimentary aspects of their musical personalities and their natural musical affinity, Hanna joined Asa on stage for an improvised performance in a Stockholm art gallery several days later. Asa invited Hanna to perform with him again at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City on the last date on his tour with Beach House, beginning the trans-Atlantic exchange of ideas that eventually became Time Was.
    The strength of the collaboration is instantly apparent from the opening notes of the wistful “Loveful Heights.” Hanna’s voice floats freely
    above Asa’s keyboards, his modal organ riff acting as an anchor. While previous Zomes releases have stuck closely to either improvisation or
    itinerant explorations of melody and rhythm, Time Was unifies these approaches. The meditative “Equinox” builds up from a deep organ
    drone, soft piano and plaintive vocals adding texture and melody. The title track is as close to a pop song as Zomes has ever come, and
    the Swedish lyrics are based on a poem by Hanna’s great grandfather. Hanna traveled to Baltimore during September and October of
    2012 to record Time Was at Tempo House. These are the first Zomes recordings laid to tape in a studio and the songs are as immersive on
    record as they are live.
    Time Was is an expansion of the Zomes aesthetic, an open and natural collaboration between like-minded individuals. While there are certainly obvious musical connections to Osborne’s work with Lungfish, the duo of Asa and Hanna have built on this considerable foundation and expanded the form to glorious new heights. Zomes will tour as a trio this spring.

    SALES POINTS

    Zomes is the work of Asa Osborne (Lungfish, The Pu-pils).

    Time Was follows his album Earth Grid (Thrill 267, April 2011) and his sold out LP-only release Improvisations (Thrill 296, Jan 2012)

    Time Was marks the first recordings of Zomes as a duo with Asa being joined by Swedish vocalist Hanna This is also the first time a Zomes album was recorded in a proper studio and not on a cassette deck Zomes toured with Beach House in 2012 and will tour the US again in support of Time Was

    “pulsing with meditative, repetitive synth patterns and dust caked drum loops.” - Raven Sings The Blues

    “minimal, distorted keyboard accompanied by sparse kick-drum hits creates a hypnotic, trance-inducing mood much like Lungfish did for so many years” - Washington City Paper Erhältlich ab 19.04.2013 Getaggt mit:
