A Hawk and A Hacksaw
Forest Bathing

American folk duo A Hawk and A Hacksaw are back with a typically earnest and cerebral approach to music-making, with their latest album, 'Forest Bathing' riffing on the Japanese tradition of healing oneself by hanging out in the woods. This 10-track record weaves together ancient instruments, woodwind melodies and magical storyt...view item »

Jeremy Barnes
Summer '16

Quaintly DIY-produced, is the latest slice of Jeremy Barnes-incepted 8-track electronica - Summer '16. Consistently mysterious, insular and defyingly abrasive, the collection is the result of late night experiments with fuzzed-out organs and analogue synths - all brought together by Barnes' bombas...view item »

A Hawk And A Hacksaw

A Hawk and a Hacksaw is a feller out of Neutral Milk Hotel who now resides in good old England on Thames. His new self titled album sounds quite frighteningly like Philip Glass.

A Hawk And A Hacksaw

I'm utterly obsessed by this new A Hawk And A Hacksaw album. I've quite liked bits by 'em before but nothing has really grabbed by them as much as Delivrance, their brand new album on Leaf. I think it probably helped seeing them live the other week.... it was like being at a jewish wedding on crack. The music was so fast and furious I've no idea ho...view item »

A Hawk And A Hacksaw
The Way The Wind Blows

My own personal album of the week would be the new A HAWK & A HACKSAW album (I do like The Nightingales but this speaks to me in special ways...). 'The Way The Wind Blows' is a tremendous thing of a thing. Apparently there's a new phenomenon called 'Gypsy folk'. Wow! Actually it's just a phrase coined by journalists in a vain ...view item »

Darkness At Noon

Now onto A Horse And A Hacksaw. New LP/CD 'Darkness At Noon' brilliantly blends Eastern European folk , klezmer, mariachi, American folk and modern composition to construct a fantastic wall of sonic wonderment & blissed out psychedelic meditation. a right old breathtaking cavalcade of sound! I wrote that, I did. Didn't nick half of i...view item »
