Welcoming Luke Howard – Pre-order Two & One LP now

Stream / Pre-order here
Pre-order comes with instant download (MP3 or FLAC)

Luke Howard is a composer and pianist from Melbourne who writes hauntingly blissful music, evoking a strong cinematic feeling by telling a story (sometimes, a very sad story…)

“Recorded across Melbourne and Reykjavik, Two & One soundtracks first and foremost Howard’s travels through Australia, Europe and North America. The narrative flows with a variety of compositional styles and instruments, with new moods and voices beyond the piano. Artifacts of human presence are strewn throughout, from calm breathing and the plod of piano keys and creak of stool, to undefinable background noises that unsettle. Such details reduce us to mere stowaways on someone else’s journey – but the wayfarer suffers us with a quiet majesty. His true companion is that on which he records his experiences. Most settle for a journal, a sketchpad, a camera; in Howard’s case, we are fortunate indeed that he also had a piano to return home to.” (Chris Redfearn)

Self-released as a photo book / audio download, Hobbledehoy are proud to share this modern-composition diary of sorts with you on beautiful vinyl format.

Luke Howard

2014: A year in review

1491257_10152110041684668_1741440406_o

2014: A year in review

I’m going to try to keep things brief here… A LOT HAPPENED THIS YEAR.

Most notably, Hobbledehoy became forever stronger with my wife Erin taking an active role in the label. Many of the artists were kicking goals well beyond anything any of us imagined. From a label standpoint…

  • 7 records were released, all with vinyl editions. This included two fancy pants 2LP gatefolds (and our MOST EXPENSIVE project yet).
  • CASPIAN and KEVIN DEVINE joined our little family.
  • For the regulars, we created a Record Club.
  • I finally bit the bullet and got a Hobbledehoy tattoo. On the same day, a few other misguided souls thought it to be a good idea too.
  • We ran our first annual “Hobble Day” celebrations in Brisbane. Next year’s will be announced shortly…
  • We made a coffee roast with our new pals at Monastery, had a fantastic launch party with Kevin Devine performing. Coffee is long gone now, but we’ll have a new roast for you next year.
  • Our website has been under heavy redevelopment, and while still early days, is more user friendly and enjoyable to use.

So once again, thank YOU.

Hobbledehoy x Monastery Coffee collaboration

coffeebag- fullsize

Hobbledehoy x Monastery Coffee collaboration

Introducing the first Monastery Coffee x Hobbledehoy collaboration; Deri Kocha – an unusual, sweet, Ethiopian bean ideal for espresso or filter methods (we recommend Aeropress!). After a long cupping process, Erin and I, together with Adam from Monastery, finally nailed this one down and we’re all really excited for you to try it!

Monastery are a local team based alongside us here in Adelaide. A small batch, specialty coffee roaster, that share our philosophy of putting the artist/producer at the center of how we do things. This very same ethos ensures Monastery’s quality, while also respecting the people involved at every stage from planting to production.

You can order the beans from our online store now, they will be shipping from NOV 5 onward. We also have new Hobbledehoy mugs in store ideal for all hot beverages, and a combo package for both to save on shipping.

LEARN MORE / ORDER HERE

We’ll be announcing a special launch party in Adelaide in a few days time too. OOOOOH IT’S GOING TO BE GOOOOOOOOD!

This Will Destroy You announces new album and shares ‘Dustism’

HOB034 - 900x900

ORDER NOW – 2LP/CD/Digital

Hobbledehoy 2LP vinyl first press limited to 500 Navy Blue. Deluxe gatefold with copper foil printing.

Since 2004, THIS WILL DESTROY YOU has been forging some of the world’s most brutal, dynamic, and precariously visceral instrumental rock. In addition to a vigorous tour schedule, their celebrated discography and critically renowned soundtrack work for feature films and documentaries have earned them a sizable and fervent international following. Another Language, TWDY’s fourth full length LP, marks their euphonious return from a prolonged vacuous dark period that threatened to break both the band and the members themselves. Rather than be stifled by their experience TWDY were atomized and subsequently made anew, emerging with a revived energy and reinforced sense of solidarity. As a result, Another Language captures the band at its most potent, honed, and utterly powerful form yet, displaying an edified unity and graduated sense of song-writing, tonal complexity, and studio prowess.

VIDEO: Ceres – Syllables

ceres-video

If you’ve ever wondered which colourful characters you might encounter at a CERES gig, they’re all represented here in the brand new video for their rocking tune ‘Syllables’ – and it’s nice to see they’ve got at least one superfan. The song is taken from their debut album I Don’t Want To Be Anywhere But Here, out now. You can also thank the good folks at Rockaway Creative for coming up with this film clip.
