For some reason, I've not been back to the HearYa Music blog for a while. When I finally did stop by, I was pleased to discover there was another session from Ha Ha Tonka - this time playing tracks from their second album (Novel Sounds of the Nouveau South). There are four tracks for download from their session:
- Walking On The Devil’s Backbone - Probably my favourite of the four on offer. Driven along by a strong beat and some interesting noisy guitars.
- Close Every Valve To Your Bleeding Heart - Starts off fairly quietly, name checks Dostoevsky, then bursts into angry guitar part when lamenting the loss of love. Excellent stuff.
- Hold My Feet To The Fire - Not sure what this is about (an abusive relationship?) but interesting changes of pace and interesting harmonies.
- The Outpouring - Some church-style organ to go with the noisy guitars.
So are you a Ha Ha Tonka convert yet?
