Loudhailer Electric Company – Cursus DHM009 Release date 7th November 2016
Debut studio album by Loudhailer Electric Company – original psychedelic sounds featuring members of seminal cult bands Dead Fingers Talk, Red Guitars, Nazca Nine and The Planet Wilson.
“It’s a fantastic album!” Pete Maher mastering professional for The Rolling Stones, Jack White, Pixies, The 1975, Lana Del Rey…
“Cutting edge, psychedelic folk music of the highest quality.” Alan Raw, with Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music.
“A compendium of psychedelic sounds which tap into the folk and rock genres, driven by hugely talented and passionate musicians – beautifully poetic – I’m hypnotised.” Nix Chidlow – BROWSE – Independent Arts Culture.
“…a magic album. What really draws out the juice is driving through the forest at night with the windows down – wind blowing my hair everywhere – playing it LOUD. I am sure the BIG Lizards and Bandicoots, Snakes and Owls think I’m extra-terrestrial as I whizz by. It is a very very rich experience…” Jungle Jim Ward, Byron Bay, New South Wales.
Album of the Year 2016: “Cursus is a wonderful album featuring nine original tracks of psychedelic sounds underpinned with a myriad of references to folk, classic rock and other genres. The music is highly atmospheric, immersive and hypnotic with the ability to transport the listener to another time and place.” Across The Universal Soundscape
“C’mon, we’re gonna take you on a trip (the opening line of Night Heron) fits the whole album on two levels. Lyrically, the trip is like an open top bus ride around their locality with tour guide Lou giving you the lowdown. Musically, it’s more of a psychedelic trip with folky influences and some stunning playing.” Davey Hammond, Sounds Magazine
