Today, we are excited to announce a brand new video for “Dumb Love” from Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders’ stunning LP, Hurtsville. The b+w video was directed by Wilk, and premiered today over at Impose.
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 (regret, subversion, death, misguided love, 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 Dreamlanders’ Hurtsville to North America. The album will be released in both digital and limited, 180-gram vinyl formats on July 18th.
For boutique labels, vinyl copies of albums are fantastic things. Especially when you get to shout on about how great it is and it’s your little logo on the back of it. It’s akin to a feeling of honor I’d say. A process indeed- I know, I apologize- the long-awaited vinyl version of JACK LADDER’s fantastic album, HURTSVILLE has arrived and is coming very soon via Holloweyed Records
Stay tuned for an official announcement soon as well as some other exciting new things.
Happy Holidays everyone. I’m pleased to say most of my shopping is finished. Post Office trips are next. Ugh.
