Torn Hawk’s New LP Union and Return Out Today

Full Artwork by Gregory Formeanteau

IN THE PRESS:

“… an interesting challenge to the lo-fi ‘80s crew” – The Wire

“When I make music right I can shatter myself for a moment […] And I become dust, return to a union with everything else.” – Luke Wyatt for 032c

Union and Return was composed and recorded entirely by Torn Hawk (née Luke Wyatt) at his home in Berlin and is inspired by romantic painters like Karl Friedrich Schinkel and Caspar David Friedrich. On his second album for Mexican Summer, Wyatt parts the gauze that shrouded his former work to reveal a set of compositions elegantly orchestrated, awash in unguarded emotion.

Union and Return is now available in vinyl and digital formats. Find links to stream and purchase from the retailers listed below.

Quilt Returns to KEXP

Screen Shot 2016-05-12 at 11.37.33 AM
While in Seattle earlier this year, Quilt returned to KEXP’s studios for a session of spooling out material from the band’s latest record, Plaza. In this session recording it’s clear that Quilt has grown; the band plays together in a relaxed stoicism that is both peaceful and technically on point.

Watch it here.

Pre-Stream Torn Hawk’s New Album

MEX215 - Cover

Torn Hawk flies again! Hawk (neé Luke Wyatt) has a new LP coming out next Friday, May 13th, titled Union and Return. A departure from his previous work, Union and Return was written and produced at Wyatt’s Berlin home. Surrounded by a vast juxtaposition of Berlin’s new contemporary art scene and the city’s pre-20th century art and architecture, Wyatt was highly inspired by the museums around him. German magazine 032c explores Wyatt’s infatuation with German Romanticism and it’s impact upon his new record.

Pre-stream the whole album on 032c before it drops next week.
