2020: the year we stayed at home and went #nuts finishing releases! "Triple Bluff" is the second LP by Kit Supergroup HESITATION, comprised of Chris Catlin (Reckno / Yaaard), Richard Greenan (Devon Loch / Devonanon), John B McKenna (Undermedvetenheten), Galina Juritz (Stacey Juritz Ravens Keller) and Francis P Brady (Frand).
Open the scrapbook and catch tumbling, Velvets-esque guitar, deep (no)thinking kraut gold and tear-soaked fine line sax that might see Alabaster DePlume nod in approval. A cacophony of clipped ambitions, whittled down scratches and smiling lamentations.
Triple Bluff was recorded live over a rambling, three day residency at the Malmö Inter Arts Centre, in Sweden. Recommended for fans of early Kraftwerk, Spacemen 3 and Galaxie 500. Vinyl out around Aug 1.
"Sky kissing fuzzy pastoral blissouts by Hesitation, gently tilting toward kosmiche and drone rock horizons on a sweetly ambitious 2nd LP recorded with an expanded line-up.
Captured during a 3-day residency in Malmö, Sweden, ’Triple Bluff’ speaks to the warm and familial vibe between the core duo of Chris Catlin (Reckno/Yaard) and Richard Greenan (Devon Loch/Devonanon) and their newly expanded band of John B McKenna (Undermedvetenheten), Galina Juritz (Stacey Juritz Ravens Keller) and Francis P Brady (Frand) in a way primed to stroke the pleasure tentacles of VU, Spacemen 3, or Galaxie 500 fans.
Pushing off with the iridescent guitar glitter and humming synth pads of ‘Sapling’ they describe tranquil pastoral scenes in ‘Outrageous Drive’ and lure us into eerier ambient simulacra on ‘Aviary’, along with the sublime floating raga drone ‘Mantra’, and it really all comes together in a beautiful denouement ‘Martha’s Presence’ that strongly reminds us of moments from the amazing CS + Kreme album."
