The Hunt - Fifteen Minutes

The Hunt - "The Hunt Begins" out 11/12/13 on Sacred Bones Records

Sacred Bones Records is proud to be celebrating 100 releases by unveiling the lost LP from The Hunt, "The Hunt Begins".

The first ever release on Sacred Bones was a 7" from The Hunt. The band was formed by Jasper McGandy & Christian Kount (both now members of Cult of Youth) in 2007. They crafted a unique style of post-punk influenced by The Southern Death Cult and New Model Army. The artwork for their first release depicted an androgynous wild banshee wearing warpaint, clad all in leather and animal bones, holding a sacrificial knife pointed at the sky. This debut single was The Hunt’s lone statement.

Ok. I can't stop smiling and shaking my head at this roller disco video from Moonshoes. Moonshoes is the fantastic creation of French musician Gilles Paulet. Moonshoes' new album is called Boogieland. Rather than trying to explain it, here's how it's described in the promo materials:

A concept album a journey in Blaxploitation ! A Soul/Disco/Pop/Jazz symphony! recorded alone in his own studio by multi-instrumentist Gilles Paulet, a musical Disco monk, a dignified new figure and spokesman of this blue-eyed soul. Bringing the 70s back to life with this music which could be the imaginary original soundtrack theme of a movie.
