Holy Fuck Latin On Vinyl LP + MP3 Coupon
If opposites really do attract, it makes perfect sense that Holy Fuck would choose a barn in rural Ontario to record a series of dynamic electro-noise pop tracks that compose their latest full-length release, titled Latin. Where Holy Fuck in the past were a rotating cast of musicians, Latin showcases for the first time their consistent touring line up. Drummer Matt Schulz and bass player Matt McQuaid provide a complex rhythm foundation that at times feels like an invisible hand leading you through a dark hedge maze. Perhaps an excessive feat for most, but this provides the ideal underpinning as Brian Borcherdt and Graham Walsh merge a twin effects/feedback tangle that is equal parts entrancing and inspiring. There is an added dimension of song craft on Latin, it brings noise and melody together with an uncanny sense of optimism but at the same time Holy Fuck have not lost the chaotic and euphoric energy that they are known for.
Latin was engineered by Graham Walsh and mixed by Dave Newfeld (Broken Social Scene), D. Sardy (Johnny Cash, NIN), Eli Janney (GvsB, Wilco,), Paul Epworth (Bloc Party, Primal Scream) and Holy Fuck themselves. With high praise from peers, critics, big name endorsements and ascension on festival bills, Holy Fuck have the divine right to be profane. And with respected music luminaries Thom Yorke and Lou Reed passing on kind words about studio recordings and live performances, it’s no wonder Holy Fuck’s Latin is so highly anticipated.
