A Heart is a Spade: White Hinterland Visits WNYC


March 2014
Hands In
"Ployester Itch
"
mp3

Portland's Eric Crosby is blessed with musical genious. His brilliance has been showcased in various groups through the years, including Yourself & The Air, and Settlers, but his solo project Hands In is truely on point. Through a combination of loops and live perormance, he creates a blend of lo-fi psych that I could listen to on repeat for days.

The track 'Take Time Enough' off his January 2014 release Polyester Itch floats through a dreamy cloud of punching synth, sampled drums and spaced out soothing vocals that can lift the heaviest of depression on a gloomy Portland day. Listen to the full album here. - Travis Leipzig


This is a preview of the new Deli charts - we are working on finalizing them by the end of 2013.

Chicago's CD of The Month: YAWN

In their full-length debut the buzz band YAWN deliver on the promise of the 2010 self-titled ep. The band incorporates tribal influence with their unquie indie rock roots. The result is fun, and undenibly orginial. Through incorporating tribal elements the band is able to present an array of sounds throuh out the album while crafting infectious pop tunes.

On a track like "Keepup", YAWN swirls drums with churning bells, claps, and other noises beneath classic '60's harmonies. It draws you in on a number of levels, and that is where the charm of the band rest. It the best of the Beach Boys meets Animal Collective, but all with a new twist. My favorite track on Open Season has to be "YumYum" with its slight '80's flare, and nodd to Of Montreal. It adds another demension this wonderfully complex release. Through Open Season YAWN has proven that they are more than just buzz, but a solid collective of musicians.

YAWN will be celebrating the release on Open Season at Schubas on August 30th.
