HOVVDY - EASY / TURNS BLUE VINYL (LTD. ED. 7" + ZINE)
LIMITED EDITION 7" VINYL + ZINE
Release Date: 5th October 2018
"Taking inspiration from the original concept behind the founding of Saddle Creek, as an attempt to highlight their home city through music and art, they began the Document Series in 2017. Each release featured in the Document Series is comprised of an exclusive record featuring unreleased music from artists outside of the label's roster, along with a specially curated zine created by the artist. The fith installment in the series comes from Austin, Texas based Hovvdy. Hovvdy (pronounced "howdy") is the writing and recording project of Charlie Martin and Will Taylor. The duo, both primarily drummers, first met in the fall of 2014 and quickly bonded over a love for quiet music. Within a few weeks, they had combined songs and began recording their rst EP in bedrooms and family homes across Texas. By 2016 the two had committed to each others growth in songwriting and recording, resulting in their debut album Taster, originally released on Sports Day Records and reissued in 2017 by Double Double Whammy. They followed this in 2018 with the release of Cranberry, which Pitchfork described as, "Foggy, warm, and wistful, it sounds like faded time." Hovvdy has found a unique identity in rhythmic, down-tempo pop songs that are hopeful, yet melancholy; relatable, yet distinguishable."
