A Hawk and A Hacksaw + Frisk Frugt
New Mexico's A Hawk And A Hacksaw are set to release a new double album on their self-run label LM Dupli-cation. 'You Have Already Gone To The Other World: Music Inspired By Paradjanov's Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors' will be released on April 2nd 2013, with tour dates around the UK and Ireland to follow in April.
You Have Already Gone To The Other World is the product of those tours and the evolution of the soundtrack into something that can stand on its own: a double album of new compositions and traditional folk tunes that have been inspired by the surreal folk magic of the film, sprinkled with the wondrous music and foley from this piece of cinematic history.
Produced by John Dieterich of Deerhoof, this is the first AHAAH album in a long time on which its two primary members, Barnes and Trost, play pretty much every last note (save for a couple of Dieterich guitar cameos). Yet the instrumentation is far from minimal, and the songs often explode into the rich ornamentation that one would expect from the band. Dieterich's production values and sense of experimentation have elevated AHAAH into new territories of folk psychedelia, with the band's own personality colouring the traditional forms they explore with such joy like never before.
An unmissable act playing all kinds of music, with elements of modern composition and American and Eastern European folk evident in the mix. It consists of former Neutral Milk Hotel drummer Jeremy Barnes (accordion, vocals and percussion) and Heather Trost (violin, glockenspiel and melodica).
