“Sometimes it’s about the entire package, about a fully-formed conception of how art and sonics can envelop. A downright massive offering, the Hurtsville longplayer from Australia’s Jack Ladder and The Dreamlanders cannot be ignored. Recorded in the expansive NSW countryside at the 115-year-old Blackburn Estate, this collection is cinematic, brooding and impacting in its delivery; it’s easy to say Hurtsville finds the two-time Australian Music Prize nominee at his absolute best. The album will be released in both digital and limited, 180-gram vinyl formats on July 17th”.
They say you`ve got to experience the dark to really appreciate the cold light of the day, Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders has provided a breathtaking collection of songs to capture both atmospheric emotions. The captivating video for `Cold Feet` is a cinematic masterpiece, Ladder`s risky good looks carry his deep rasping vocals to the looming point where you know he`s ceasing to care. The two strongest tracks from `Hurtsville` are magnificently exposed, classic recording techniques and fastidious song-craft will relate to almost everyone when struck down in this beautifully bewildering manner – Emotionally possessed and musically strung out, Jack Ladder`s audio comparisons cannot be ignored, In fact you`ll be hard pushed to discover a more perfect alternative to the current crop of dispensable indie icons.
