07-05-2012 // Album: Hip Hatchet - Joy and Better Days


One of only 2 albums I've bought this year without even hearing a single note of it (the other being Bruce Springsteen's latest, which I've heard twice so far) is Hip Hatchet's brand new album Joy and Better Days.


And not for a second have I doubted this purchase. From the 1st spin I knew this is every inch as beautiful as his 2011 Coward's Luck EP. But those were only 3 songs, the album has 12. I have to admit I wasn't sure upfront if I would be able to listen this many songs in Hip Hatchet's unique style. Would he be able to hold my attention for the entire record? I had my doubts. But they've been proven unnecessary, uncalled for even. Almost a month ago this was released and I've heard it at least once every day. But probably more, most days.


It's the kind of record that you have to be in the mood for, but if you're not, it'll get you in that specific mood. I can't wait for Summer, listening to these songs while drinking a cold beer near the waterside, seeing the boats, children swimming. It's the perfect record to just wonder off with. Into your mind, or into Hip Hatchet's mind through his lyrics.

Favourite song: When I Sing For Strangers. But with it being the last song on the album, the other 11 songs are the perfect way to that highlight. There's no doubt I'll be listening to this beautiful album for the rest of the year (and beyond).
