HASSLE HOUND - BORN IN A NIGHT (CD)


"Apparently residing somewhere between Sesame Street and Sunset Boulevard, in a building that's part Heartbreak Hotel and part Pee Wee's Playhouse, Hassle Hound proffer dayglo audio animations and melancholic, cinematic avant-noir. Their follow up to the critically acclaimed 'Limelight Cordial', Hassle Hound integrate kindergarten kitsch with moodier psychedelicate moments, documenting a celestial domesticity with eccentric but compelling instrumentation and intriguing ideas. Their irreverent and eclectic approach results in a collection of complex, yet cohesive songs each with its own idiosyncratic sonic identity. Their curious blend of sampled sounds, field recordings, electronic noises and live instruments creates a simultaneously sophisticated and naive seduction where angelic melodies tussle with radiophonic dexterity, digital caresses, analogue whispers and jolly anarchy. The band is comprised of three core members: Tony Swain (Glasgow), Mark Vernon (Glasgow) and Ela Orleans (New York). Each of them are also involved in their own side projects: Ela Orleans has just had her second solo LP released on 'La Station Radar' to critical acclaim. Mark Vernon is one half of sample hungry double act Vernon & Burns who have a new LP on Felix Kubin's Gagarin Records. Tony Swain is currently recording material for his debut solo album on the Shadazz label." (label info)
