about

CASSETTE - SOLD OUT

- Foxy Digitalis
To Hope is to Hanker is, simply put, a really good tape. It blends a lot of different elements together that I’ve never quite heard like this before. It’s got a simple finger-picking folkery going for it, along with a Spaghetti Western twang, and almost an art-school film-score quality. All of these blur together into some drone meld syrupy concoction that leaks into your heart and spills into your spirit. Alternating between mind-numbing zones and intimate reflections, its seven tracks give you some excellent opportunities to get lost. I can equally imagine popping this one in on a lonely drive home after time spent with loved ones or on a quiet rainy night that is squalled with insomnia. Talk West was a fantastic discovery and I really appreciate having had this tape shared with me. It comes in the standard issue dress for Avant Archives, with black/white photography and clean white appointments. (TW received an 8/10)
