HILARY WOODS - Colt - LP €21.99, CD €13.99 (Sacred Bones)
Dubliner Hilary Woods' first album for massively respected Sacred Bones Records. Layering piano, synth, tape machine, field recordings, vocals, drone, unadorned beats, and old string instruments, these songs culminate in her debut solo LP 'Colt.' Straddling the acoustic and electronic worlds, Colt is an intensely personal journey through grief, abandonment, and mutating love. Written and recorded at home in Dublin, Colt was mixed by and co-produced with James Kelly (WIFE, Altar of Plagues) in Berlin in the winter of 2017. Highly recommended!
Available on limited edition blue vinyl, black vinyl and CD.

In a career that’s spanned three decades, two languages, multiple bands, offshoots, collaborations and one boundless imagination, ‘Babelsberg’ is arguably Gruff’s finest set of songs to date.
