Due to considerable issues with our suppliers, we will unfortunately not be in a position to meet our delivery deadlines for the Housewives album, which was initially planned for 27th October. We have been working extremely hard over the past few days and weeks to get this brilliant record produced as soon as possible. However it is a point of honour and utmost importance to us that each of our releases is delivered to the highest possible standard which both its artists and listeners merit, both from an aesthetic viewpoint and in terms of sound reproduction and quality. We regret that we are not satisfied that this has been the case in this instance. Therefore we are working with new suppliers and a new release date will be announced as soon as possible. In the meantime, you can still listen to the first single from the album, Docile Body, and pre-order the album here. Sincere thanks for your patience and understanding! HITD x

With this new album Cankun’s work is mutating into a more mature and to the point loop based, psyche-dub, lo-fi music, that is flirting at times with prog, post rock and ambient electro. It will take quite some time to digest the complexity of this album but we are already looking forward to listen to Caylet’s next move. Now stream Cankun‘s Only The Sun Is Full Of Gold in its entirety below!


More words on New NoiseMowno & Ad Hoc.

You probably know Demian Castellanos as the man behind the London psyche rock outfit The Oscillation. Today Hands In The Dark and their UK best partner in crime Cardinal Fuzz are teaming-up to release The Kyvu Tapes Vol.I (1990-1998) which is the fruit of his 90’s decade-long, obsession for the infinite possibilities offered by the electric guitar, playing it with forks, knives, bits of paper, volume control, and making the most of the effects pedals he had.

The Kyvu Tapes Vol.I (1990-1998) is available to stream in full over at The Drone. Order it here.
