The Snowy Owls - “Kerfuffle” AND
Hoax Hunters - “Orbit”
The fuzz bruz of RVA, The Snowy Owls and Hoax Hunters, have teamed up in celebrating Record Store Day this Saturday. The two bands have a split 7” containing two songs from each band and are releasing it on 4/20, Record Store Day through Cherub Records. “Kerfuffle” is static, distortion-led post-rock with melancholy vocals. “Orbit” is a faster, clashier rocker the is a great counterpart to The Snowy Owls’ effects.
The tracks were recorded by Allen Bergendahl at Scott’s Addition Sound. Hoax Hunter drummer Tim Falen (Hot Dolphin, Diamond Center) provided some additional mixing.
There will be a limited release on Saturday, 4/20 @ Steady Sounds including a performance by both bands. As if you needed another reason to visit on Record Store Day!
Included in the limited edition RSD pack:
lathe cut 7” (limited to 40 copies)
three 1” buttons
1 of 40 different hand drawn “Kerfuffles” by Matt Klimas
