Hassle Hound Limelight Cordial
- Words: Brion Paul
- Label: Staubgold
Ramshackle Glaswegian sound collectors Hassle Hound finally bring the post-folktronic, cut ‘n‘ paste, strummy-hummy jams on this impossibly blessed full-length. With neighing horses, boinnnng-ing springs, and flamenco and psychedelic guitars, Hassle Hound is the musical equivalent of a Valhalla-esque flea market crossed with a super-group of every charismatic, story-hoarding uncle the world has known. Moreover, the depth and breadth of samples layered in among the exquisitely crafted songs almost makes this a train-hopping, long-haired hippie cousin of The Books.
