Handmade numbered foldout card sleeve in a limited run of 100 copies… ‘Home’ is an album which spans more than 2,000 kilometres, two families and a lifetime of experiences. Darren Harper and Jared Smyth’s collaborative effort examines the spaces they have shaped as husbands, fathers and community members in the two very different towns of Tallahassee, Florida and Nederland, Colorado. Although the two men have never met, they have produced an album that explores the most intimate corners of their lives. Through the sounds of tinkling streams, children drumming, warm guitars and crunching ice, the pair have crafted an intensely personal album, which invites us into the parts of the world they have made their own. This is an album full of warmth, subtlety and power that explores what it means to call somewhere ‘home’. Mastered by: Jason Corder
Limited edition numbered run of 150 copies + download code… Hibernate Recordings kick off a new collaboration series with an ep from Isnaj Dui & Karina ESP. The goal for the series is to get two different artists on our roster to put their heads together to have some fun and do what they love best. Isnaj Dui is Katie English, based in North London, UK. Her work in the past has graced labels such as Home Normal, Smallfish, Rural Colours and her own imprint FBox Records. With a history of recording and musical study that spans back to 1995, Katie’s current sound is characterised by her use of flute, particularly the bass flute. This is generally a rarely used instrument but is used frequently throughout her work as a defining feature. Add to this a few home-made instruments and electronics and you have the very distinctive sound of Isnaj Dui, a project that has been active since 2004.
