Sophie Hunger recently released her critically-praised new album ‘Halluzinationen’ via Caroline International. Featuring 6Music playlisted single ‘Alpha Venom’, the album is produced by Speedy Wunderground’s Dan Carey (Kate Tempest, Fontaines DC). Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, ‘Halluzinationen’ is Berlin-based, Swiss singer, multi-instrumentalist and film composer Hunger’s seventh studio album.
Her second collaboration with Carey, for ‘Halluzinationen’ Sophie decamped from his Speedy Wunderground studios (where the pair cut 2018’s ‘Molecules’) to Abbey Road’s Studio 2. The album was captured there in continuous live takes, recorded just six times over the course of two days - an approach Hunger identifies as ‘Full risk’. ‘Halluzinationen’ is suffused with the nervous energy of its creation, and the tension is right there on the Krautrock-ing ‘Alpha Venom’, with whip-crack jolts from electronics programmed by Carey (also a member of the studio band heard across the album).
Support in Prague: Hello Forever (USA)
Based in Topanga, California, on a piece of land once used by a free-love nudist commune, the art-pop collective ‘Hello Forever’ are led by the eccentric, magnetic figure of Samuel Joseph. They live together, in this pastoral setting high above the Pacific Ocean – not far from where Neil Young recorded After the Gold Rush or Captain Beefheart laid down the tracks for Trout Mask Replica, the group forever expanding and contracting, with members coming and going as they please. However, the group adheres to a stringent five day a week rehearsal schedule, they fuse elements of the 60s West Coast sound with a DIY approach to music and creativity which has spawned their remarkable debut album, the aptly titled Whatever It Is. Joseph and company have created a contemporary throwback to a vibrant era with a set of songs that establish the collective’s exquisite harmonies and colourful instrumentation.
