Airhead Preps New Single for Hemlock
- Words: Kat Leinhart
Just last week, Rob McAndrews dropped a new solo EP as Airhead for the emergent 1-800-Dinosaur label, which he co-operates alongside James Blake and a handful of others. Now, the UK producer and member of Blake's live band has disclosed details for another 12" under the alias, one that will apparently deviate somewhat from the style of his past releases. Inspired by "afterhours sessions in some of the world's best and worst nightclubs," the forthcoming HEK024 (artwork below) "bangs with the best of them," and throws some new weight behind McAndrews' delicate songwriting and arrangements. Due out via dubstep innovator Untold's Hemlock label, "October" b/w "Macondo" will reportedly dose listeners with apocalyptic fanfares and heavy kick drums, and is slated for official release on September 1.
