A Hawk and a Hacksaw is a band rich in creativity and playfulness. Their music is funny, magical, interesting, and beautiful. It is great news that in May they will release their new album Deliverance, with the first single, “Foni tu Argile”, coming on April 27th.
A Hawk and a Hacksaw is originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, U.S.A. The two members are the drummer Jeremy Barnes, formerly of the experimental indie band Neutral Milk Hotel, and violinist Heather Trost. As they say on their myspace page, the rest of the band is composed of “a rooster, a gaggle of geese, bits of tin, two rivers (one in France, one in New Mexico), … a small cat who has three little kittens, an assortment of gongs, wooden percussive implements, and portable drums, the occasional jazz musician, or tuba player, an oud master, three accordions, a romanian brass band, 4 hungarian cosmopolitans and a stroh violin.”
The central couple moved to Budapest after their tour in 2007 where they have strenghtened their Central European influences. We are thrilled and excited to listen to their new album. For now, if you haven’t heard them yet, check out this tune and this video.
