HURTSVILLE (180 GM VINYL) *SOLD OUT*
by Jack Ladder and the Dreamlanders
$19.00 / Sold Out
Welcome to HURTSVILLE
Sometimes it's about the entire package, about a fully-formed conception of how art and sonics can envelop. A downright massive offering, the Hurtsville longplayer from Australia's Jack Ladder and The Dreamlanders cannot be ignored. Recorded in the expansive NSW countryside at the 115-year-old Blackburn Estate, this collection is cinematic, brooding and impacting in its delivery; it's easy to say Hurtsville finds the two-time Australian Music Prize nominee at his absolute best.
A stalwart density soaks these songs. From its vintage production techniques (digital metalizer anyone?) and evocative symbolism of regret, subversion, death, misguided love and panic, Ladder and his cohorts deliver a set that's deeply from the heart, its grip unyielding. The impression that singles "Cold Feet" and "Short Memory" produce proves helpful in understanding the textured palette that follows- Lush linger and challenging atmospherics.
Holloweyed Records is honored to present Jack Ladder and The Dreamlander's Hurtsville to North America.
