We are graced by Heavenly signing H. Hawkline at this year’s Lounge Around Town. Having just released his critically acclaimed record ‘In The Pink of Condition’ in February, he is all yours for one day only. Huw Gwynfryn Evans, the man behind the sound, is calling the record simply ‘strange pop’, an homage to the maverick U.S. author Richard Brautigan (the Hawkline name appropriated from Brautigan’s 1974 ‘gothic western’ The Hawkline Monster) and a just-turned-solo Paul McCartney (Huw namechecks Ram, an album coincidentally recorded when the once-and-future Beatle was also twenty-nine). It’s reminiscent of a lot of west coast 60’s psychedelia and was unsurprisingly recorded in Los Angeles, the city to which Evans relocated from his native Wales to in 2013, with long time collaborator Cate Le Bon producing. Retaining his lo-fi jangly British pop sound, Hawkline somehow manages to venture into the unknown combining a variety of important cult genres. I can assure you he is not to be missed, catch him at (insert time and venue here).
