SUN – HASSLE HOUND “split” LP
SUN is the unusual pairing of world renowned experimental guitarist OREN AMBARCHI and Australian music figurehead CHRIS TOWNEND.
SUN confirms its authors as two truly original music minds, a languid and sweet pop creation, brimming with sly invention in its classicist frame. These songs simply float into the consciousness with a grand air and sublimely delicate touch. There’s an easy warmth to SUN as well as some darker surprises for added depth and nuance
Sun s/t Preservation (Australie) Staubgold (All) + cd remixes (Mapstation, Pluramon, Pimmon, Hrvatski, Rafael Toral …)
Formed approximately two and a half years ago the group consists of Tony Swain (guitar & samples), Lizzy Swimmers (vocals & violin), David Fulford (electronics & keyboards) and Mark Vernon (electronics & samples). Hassle Hound blend samples and loops from a variety of disparate sources, gelling them together with instrumentation to create quirky off-kilter pop songs. Their sound is lush and melodic and always highly evocative, combining influences from a range of unlikely sources, taking in both the contemporary and the obsolete, high and low fidelity, the popular and the obscure.
