A Hawk And A Hacksaw
A Hawk And A Hacksaw
Musical project from Albuquerque, New Mexico led by Jeremy Barnes, who spent a few years as drummer extraordinaire for Neutral Milk Hotel. Barnes creates a playfully gothic atmosphere with his multi-layered, frantic compositions. Mixing field recordings with accordion, piano and bursts of drunken choruses, he generates a singular and unnerving orchestral whole. A song's direction can hinge on a dog's bark or a phone ringing, while cacophony and sweet, hymn-like harmonies cohabit in entertainingly unexpected passages. Influenced by everything from Eastern European folk music to Pierre Schaeffer to Spike Jones & His City Slickers, there's a healthy disregard for boundaries at play.
