Wayne Robbins & The Hellsayers

All You Need To Sleep

It is now three years since Dell’Orso heard rough mixes of these album tracks when Wayne Robbins & The Hellsayers visited the U.K to tour with their friends, Band Of Horses. At that point The Hellsayers were over from their home town Asheville, North Carolina to promote their debut album "The Lonesome Sea", a country-cosmic rock jewel Dell’Orso discovered via a Beachwood Sparks fan site.

Picking up from where their debut left off, Wayne describes "All You Need" as 'the night album, about the wee small hours'. Far heavier than its predecessor, the album has already been described as 'an atmospheric blend of Buffalo Springfield harmonies and Sonic Youth guitar blasts', lap steel guitar jostling with piles of Yo La Tengo distortion.

Like "The Lonesome Sea" this album was recorded in a school bus repair shop (though bizarrely not the same one) with no heating in the dead of winter. The albums gestation was hampered by the familiar tale of lack of resources, but also a terrier determination to mix such a dense record littered with dozens of vocal tracks and guitar overdubs perfectly.

Eventually the band mixed the album with Mitch Easter particularly known for his work on early REM records, with the exception of the crestfallen "Rowboat Of Stone" which Cian Ciaran from Super Furry Animals has put his magic to (Cian having recently mixed albums by Sibrydion and El Goodo for Dell’Orso).

Appropriately since this album was finished The Hellsayers have recently recorded an EP with Brent Rademaker from Beachwood Sparks which will appear later in the year.

'Genuinely inspired merging of pre-electric and post psychedelic Americana. Neil Young and Giant Sand provide pointers, but Wayne & co chart a spry, original course' - Uncut Magazine.

STAFF COMMENTS

Darryl says: Sweet and summery indie-Americana infused with occasional Sonic Youth-esque distortion blasts. Recommended.
