EDITORS’ NOTES

There’s nothing in music quite like Hope Sandoval and Colm O’Ciosoig’s psychedelic slow dances and desert folk lullabies. “Salt of the Sea” and “The Peasant” epitomize the duo's achingly narcotic feel, but Sandoval’s inimitable allure hits full bloom on the Kurt Vile duet “Let Me Get There,” a cyclical lovelorn groove that we wish would never end.

Silky bluesy perfection

thixjasm,

I'm obsessed with Hope's voice and own most of her catalog. 'Bavarian Fruit Bread' is a favorite of mine and it's always being played. 'Through The Devil....' was way less accessible and the songs had little direction and sputtered out. With the exception of 'Blue Bird' and 'Trouble' I had a hard time falling in love with the album.
Today 'Until the Hunter' was released on SoundCloud and other websites for a onetime streaming preview of the new album in its entirety. After the first listen I was blown away at how accessible and Mazzy Star like bluesy this album is. Colm plays slide guitar as easy and effortless as Roebacks older stuff. The songs have a more organic warm sound than the two previous albums. I'm on listen 2 right now and I'm in love with this album and can't wait till my vinyl copy comes in the mail. This album in on par with Mazzy Stars back catalog. Buy it.

I am happy

FRToscano,

Can only rate this based on the three songs available, but I am loving what I've heard so far. I am so excited for this album. Hope's ethereal voice is desperately needed to drown out the autotuned singers.

Wonderful

Addictsurreal,

Hope Sandoval is so awesome

About Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions

In 2000, ex-Mazzy Star vocalist Hope Sandoval joined with drummer Colm O'Ciosoig of My Bloody Valentine to form Hope Sandoval & the Warm Inventions. The project retained the laid-back slowcore sound of Mazzy Star, and featured Sandoval's sensuous, hypnotic voice. However, it replaced the psychedelic leanings that Mazzy Star were known for with spare, subtle arrangements that reinforced Sandoval's gentle vocal style. In 2000, Sandoval issued her first EP with the Warm Inventions, At the Doorway Again, and followed it up with a debut full-length, Bavarian Fruit Bread, a year later. Eight years after their debut, the pair returned with their sophomore effort, Through the Devil Softly. It would be another seven years -- during which time both Mazzy Star and My Bloody Valentine made comebacks -- before they would release their third album. Produced by the duo and recorded in a fort in Ireland, the record included contributions from Kurt Vile and Berkeley street musician Michael Masley. Until the Hunter was released on their own Tendril Tales label in late 2016. A three-song companion EP, Son of a Lady, followed in 2017. Its release came just before the group set out on a North American tour. ~ Stacia Proefrock & Neil Z. Yeung
