The time has come. Holloweyed Records is honored to release Jack Ladder and The Dreamlanders‘ stunning album, Hurtsville in various formats to North America. After months of preparation, it really feels amazing to have it out there.
To celebrate the release, the folks over at Spinner will host an exclusive stream of the album in its entirety. Listen here.
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. From its vintage production techniques (digital metalizer anyone?) and evocative symbolism of regret, subversion, death, misguided love and panic, Ladder and his cohorts deliver a set that’s deeply from the heart, its grip unyielding.
