A Hound at the Hem To Be Released On November 6th On Calico Corp/ Pleasance Records.
Slim Twig’s new LP A Hound at the Hem is being released November 6th on Calico Corp and Pleasance Records. Billed as a hard psych flipside to the gentler approach of his previous LP Sof Sike, the album is a baroquely arranged tribute to both Nabokov’s Lolita and Serge Gainsbourg’s A Histoir De Melody Nelson.
The album is a collaborative work primarily with Louis Percival, but includes contributions from many notable Toronto artists including Carl Didur, Tim Westberg and Meg Remy of U.S. Girls. Conceived two years ago and recorded on Toronto Island last year, A Hound at the Hem actually pre-dates Sof Sike.
