A word from our lovely friends at Hisstology, encountered this morning while sipping a less-than-average morning coffee:
A quick, mandatory – albeit belated – beginning of the year message to wish you all the best for 2012. No exclamation mark needed for such things.
Most importantly, HISSTOLOGY is happy to announce Heroes & Villains‘s new LP, entitled “œ”.
For non-French speakers, it is pronounced ‘e dans l’o’ or ‘oeufs dans l’eau’. It was recorded on 14 tracks in Nairobi and no computer was involved in the making of the record. The cover artwork integrates a picture of rarely encountered members of the Amazonian tribe Mashco-Piro (the photograph was released during the recording’s week-long session). They never asked to be photographed.
