Hunter-Gatherer‘s new 7″ Pere Lachaise is out this week & we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away for the launch gig in Whelans this Thursday with Mel Joann & Ilex.
The dark and mysterious Hunter-Gatherer, the masked electronic wunderkind and Witch House enthusiast, conjures up a haunting athmosphere of icy yet oddly uplifting melancholia that has found some secret kind of third place between home listening and the dance floor.
Following in a long tradition of Hibernian gothic, Hunter-Gatherer emerges into the light with a slab of vinyl holding two tracks of athmospheric gothtronica. The menancing ‘Pere Lechaise’ that slowly entwines itself around your inner ear and the more relentless ‘Undergrowth” that beats a spiritual path to your door.
With a slew of sets for the likes of !kaboogie, Skinny Wolves and State Magazine, Meljoann has prepared the way for her new album ‘Squick’, which is due for release on Boy Scout Audio, on 29 October. Her sound has been described as ‘wonky R&B’ or ‘electro skweee funk’ (Nialler9). As part of the musique concrète/industrial noise combo Gland & Conduit (debut album ‘Ore’ due out this October on Second Square to None) she has played shows for the Dublin Electronic Arts Festival (DEAF), The Centrifuge, A4 Sounds, and Second Square to None.
