December 2010 will mark the first solo release of Joshua Caole. 'Slow Hearts' is a culmination of the last three years spent touring the UK in other peoples bands and a need to return to the city of Cardiff and play music that was more dear to his heart. Produced in the autumn of 2010 by Llion Robertson (Al Lewis, Eugene Francis Jr, The Gentle Good) and featuring an array of Cardiff musicians and reflects the time spent away from his home city. Joshua's music has been likened to such featured on Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music, a reflection of his upbringing in the back rooms of deserted Forest Pubs and learning his trade from whoever he found there.
THEM LOVELY BOYS:
Fantastic ensemble of folky musicians who play beautiful songs that will stick in your head forever. "Posessing energy and enthusiasm in spades they span sea-shanty charm to warped bluegrass and all the odd bits inbetween. Uniquely uplifting and unmistakeably from the land of dragon" (The Miniature Music Press)
If you need a point of reference, some might say the sounds of artists that reside on such labels as Warp, Temporary Residence and Rock Action are the closest you'll find to Hunters. All we know is that they've recently been holed up, tweaking and recording brand new material and they now now they're ready to take it outside their studio.
"Somehow melding leftfield nouse with tic-like melodies that are very difficult to unhinge once they've attached themselves. So, it sounds like Slint backing Tears For Fears" Adam Walton, BBC Wales (August 2010)
ANDREW RHYS LEWIS (Threatmantics):
Best known as the guitarist from Cardiff band Threatmantics Andrew has a hidden secret of being one hell of a solo artist too. Expect soaring vocals and nimble guitar lines.
GUEST STAR DJ STEVE FRENCH WILL ALSO KICK US OFF DANCING FAR INTO THE NIGHT WITH HER AWESOME TOONS
