Young Hunting – Hazel // Limited to 250 Vinyl LP
A new release here from the always excellent Gold Robot Records. I am really loving Young Hunting’s sound. It easily accesible, while having tons of depth. Brooding sounds with infectious melody layered in is what I keep coming back to. Really excited to hear the full length.
Format: 12" Black Vinyl
Release Date: June 4, 2013
One person will be chosen at random from the first 100 pre-orders to receive an original test pressing as an added bonus.
Los Angeles quintet Young Hunting's debut full-length album Hazel begins with gentle, lush dream pop and ends with stark, desolate gothic folk. The record, inspired mostly by failed affairs, a divorce, and life in the shadow of LA's show-business culture, took the band two years to produce. Primary songwriters Hari and Ilya first met in 2007, quickly bonding over a shared appreciation for Nick Cave, Jason Molina, Can, and the classic California pop of the 60s and 70s. Tracks for "Hazel" were recorded in various locations around Southern California, including a former ranger's station in the Angeles National Forest, Grandma's Dojo studio in LA's Koreatown, a rented one-bedroom desert house outside of Joshua Tree, and living rooms, garages & guest houses in Echo Park.
