A Hound at the Hem
A Hound at the Hem presents an elliptical narrative set against an audaciously dense mixture of art-rock tendencies and orchestral textures, the latter courtesy
of string arrangements by Owen Pallett. A formula for a bold record set quite apart from the standard indie fare, AHatH represents the hard psych flip-side to
the betimes friendlier approach of Sof’ Sike.
It is a baroquely arranged tribute to
both Nabokov’s Lolita and Serge Gainsbourg’s own tribute to that literary masterpiece, Histoire de Melody Nelson.
Featuring collaberations with Louis Percival, Carl Didur, Tim Westberg, and Meg Remy of U.S. Girls.
Edition of 300.
Includes a booklet with art.
