TWELVE (new) SONGS
Available now on CD and Digital Download
Featuring Cricket Time from the Netflix film Set it Up
Splashing at the rocky shoreline of whimsical power pop, The Hangabouts present their latest full length LP for your enjoyment. Literate and lyrical, melodic and perhaps more mature than their debut, “Illustrated Bird”, “Kits & Cats and Saxon Wives” wanders from the fantastic daydreams of devout Anglophila into the soul of Americana and emerges with a misty eye cast toward an uncertain future.
“Sinking Feeling”, “Too Hot to Sleep”, and “Taking You to Leave Me” all study the complexity of 21st century relationships while remaining wrapped in the styles of 60’s and 70’s era production and arrangement values. Anything goes on this 13 song, or is it 12 1/2 song, platter, which parlays the bands understanding and affection of the touchstone power pop groups from the golden era, with a distinct breath of Pacific Coast Highway air. Psychedelic tinged pop abounds with “Cricket Time”, “Selling Out”, the title track and others.
Don't know where you're going but you're gone.
You were super, man, we know you can be super once again.
We're going faster than I think that we should.
All about Emily that she'll never hear.
Feat Molly Felder
I'm waiting for the light to see just what we found.
Tangled sheets gather at our feet.
Beetles are lighting, mosquitoes are biting, it's cricket time.
Stay til the sun goes down.
Arriving planes, departing flights fill the windshield.
She'll call shotgun when you're riding to the sun.
Pleasant little two lane drives.
