H. Hawkline has announced the release of his first album for Heavenly Recordings. The compilation album, entitled ‘Salt Gall Box Ghouls’ is available as a free download, here.
The album is a ‘best of’ compilation of H. Hawkline tracks to date, structured chronologically to include songs from previous album and E.P releases on Shape Records, Trash Aesthetic and Turnstile Records.
As well as being available via free download, the album will also be available as a limited cassette available at Huw’s live shows and via the Heavenly Emporium and also as a very limited (x150) screen printed LP.
Although little is known about H. Hawkline at this stage, international record collector, occasional DJ partner and hirsute head Andy Votel divulges that he is “from a family lineage that comprises of 70's radio DJ's and Welsh Horror movie stars”.
He continues: “H.Hawkline's own place in the limelight often cascades and intertwines with the likes of his close friends Cate Le Bon, Sweet Baboo and Gruff Rhys. As an adept multi-intrumentalist main vein Huw Evans claws his influences from a broad outernational record collection comprising of Faustian Krautrock, Welsh Damp Wave, Turk Jerk and South American pre-punk”.
Huw is set to head out on the road in September for several live dates, including a support slot on the upcoming Cate Le Bon tour and several gigs of his own:
