Dan Hayhurst’s debut solo LP Critter Party is released September 2, available to pre-order now from LTR Records. The record’s heavy duty tip-on gatefold sleeve is inked by Reuben Sutherland. A metamorphic comic strip, it’s distorted post-criticality narrative possibilities correspond to the sonic properties within.
Available on 180gm vinyl, housed in a tip-on gatefold sleeve and available exclusively at ltrrecords.com – includes free download and critter sticker.
Critter Party assimilates elements of auto-production, pop, noise, media collage and shape shifting techno, applying these approaches with wilful disregard for structural integrity to a personal take on technological-pastoral psychedelia. Sonically, Critter Party is a meeting of over-amplified space, tape-manipulated acoustic guitar and percussion moiré, fragments of media detritus and electronic sound.
