Editors’ Notes

While The Hundred in the Hands has muted the abrasive electronic flourishes that peppered its eponymous debut album in 2010, Red Night still abounds with the dramatic urgency of '80s goth rock and post-punk. The Brooklyn duo of Jason Friedman and Eleanore Everdell proudly wear past influences while moving forward. “Empty Stations” opens with drum machine beats that recall those of classic industrial bands like Front 242 or Nitzer Ebb. As the rhythm gains momentum, Everdell sings a bewitching performance, sounding like she’s channeling a young Siouxsie Sioux. Under slower tempos and ghostly electronic flourishes, her witchy wails taper down to a near-whisper in the following “Recognize.” The standout song “Come with Me” is easily the catchiest Hundred in the Hands song to date. While the chilling synth tones and tribal percussion recall the days of clove cigarettes and crepe-soled creeper footwear, the fetching melodies display a pop sophistication rarely heard since Broadcast’s 2005 album Tender Buttons. Everdell’s singing on the title track even sounds like a tribute to Broadcast's late Trish Keenan. 

Customer Reviews

Great album

It is criminal that this band is not better known.

great album

Had not heard these guys until last week when one of their songs was played on Revenge. Hooked instantly - great album!

Their sound has evolved

This is a really interesting and gutsy album. Being a big fan of theirs, I was expecting it to be as catchy and immediately memorable as their first album, but instead they abandoned the facile hooks in favor of a more impressionistic but simultaneously aggressive sound. The results are impressive. I'm a sucker for moody retro-pop, but for this album they have evolved into painting sonic pictures, experimenting with unconventional song structure and building vast vocal landscapes, and it works. Empty Stations conjures images of an abandoned Lenin era Soviet tram-way. But it's not all darkness, there's a good deal of beauty to be found in tracks like Recognize and Stay the Night, and Tunnels is what they do best: being catchy but off-kilter. Eleanor seduced you with a wry smile on the last album, while on this one she haunts you.

Biography

Named after the phrase the Lakota Nation gave to the Fetterman Battle/Massacre of 1866 in Wyoming — in which Crazy Horse led his warriors to a victory that resulted in the death of 100 white soldiers — the Hundred in the Hands fuses synth pop with post-punk and dream pop elements, making for a sound that’s equally danceable and dreamy. The Brooklyn-based duo of Jason Friedman and Eleanore Everdell balance their duties with Friedman handling guitars and beats and Everdell providing vocals...
