ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hunters, Run! are basically a vocal band, but one that employs a loud and expansive musical background. Formed in late 2004, after a chance meeting between songwriter Larry Hess and drummer Nelson Colon in a downtown strip club, the band started as a recording project in Nelson’s basement in Brooklyn. Hess brought in some songs he had been working on since the breakup of his last band (NYC instrumentalists The Feud) and the two fleshed them out during late night drinking sessions. The results were encouraging and the two decided to put together a live band. Midwestern noise-rocker/hell-raiser Steve Shodin accepted an invitation to join the new band after seeing Hess perform solo at the Brooklyn dump “Trash”. Shodin’s powerful rock vocals were a perfect fit with Hess’s laconic and wry vocal style. Dan Fodera, a childhood friend of Larry’s and also a fellow writer as well as an actor (he is currently putting the finishing touches on his one-man play “The Dangina Monologues”), was recruited to play bass and add his rich voice to the fray. The band began working on the songs that Larry and Nelson had recorded and on new material that Larry was bringing in. By the time they played their first show the band had expanded to include former metal head (pictured on the promo cd label in his pre-H,R! days) and traveling nomad, Doug Fallone on percussion and random banging noises, as well as Seth Diamond, former member of The Feud on keys.
In December of 2005 the band entered Soundworks Studio in Manhattan. Four months of splitting time between Soundworks and their own studio in Brooklyn yielded this tremendous album. Seemingly disparate musical ideas come together in sweet unity throughout Broken Sounds. Hard guitars mix with tender harmonies. Pumping rhythms mix with catchy melodies and passionate, literate lyrics. Earnestness and biting wit walk hand in hand. Hess’s songs range from post-punk stomp to achingly touching ballads. Hunters, Run! find the middle ground between Husker Du, David Bowie, and XTC while maintaining a consistency and cohesiveness that is truly their own. Lyrically most of these songs are works of fiction with distinctive storylines. Characters such as bar prowling pranksters, elderly adulterers and drunken funeral goers make appearances throughout the album. The band handles each change in mood and musical style deftly and with an extremely unique edge. If you believe variety is the spice of life, you cannot help but to be enchanted by this intense, confident and wildly creative record.

Very impressive
I'm very impressed. Not that I thought it would suck, but because I genuinely respect the quality. By far my favorite track is A SWEET DEAL ON THE MURDER HOUSE. It's just beautiful. Smokey and starry and starry-eyed. And that starts the center of the album and, in my opinion, its core and soul. BROKEN SOUND kicks in the Talking Heads vibe and then INFLUENCE (which could be the best track) mixes Kings of Leon, who I enjoy very much with Jane's Addiction, who are forever iconic. I'm very, very impressed. Through out the whole thing I got this feeling of the relevance and urgency of the current "New York Sound" - gritty and glossy at the same time- with punk and new wave heritage but in the skin of a southern rock band. Deep roots blues rock mixed with east village aesthete.

They are great.
I think this is an awesome CD for a new band, straight from the basements of Brooklyn. They have these amazing harmonies, which ads a sweet and almost nostalgic touch to the rock n roll sound. And the drumming is fucking (can I use that word here??) solid.
