Gig Description

The Hills Are Old Songs is the latest album by RW Hedges RW Hedges and Luca Nieri return with the launch of ‘The Hills Are Old Songs’, the follow up to 2018’s ‘The Hunters in the Snow’ collection. Inspiration For The Album The album has a strong unifying theme, set in the American West of 1877, the year the phonograph was invented. Recorded chronologically, momentum built as the album came together. Hedges and Nieri deliberately stripped the songs of any extraneous instrumentation and emotional baggage. Produced by Luca Nieri produced the album, with the only addition to the pair’s acoustic guitar playing coming from an occasional delicate flavouring of pedal steel from Matt Allwright. Minimalist Easy Listening Meets Doo -Wop 2018’s ‘The Hunters in the Snow’ received musc press acclaim, with psych bible Shindig Magazine calling it ‘magical’ and awarding it a maximum five stars, and much respected indie blog Louder Than War proclaiming Hedges to be a ‘genius songwriter’. As with the current album, it was guided by Luca Neiri’s minimalist vision, with the pair’s love for the easy listening era of the 1950s and 60s filtered through a keen ear for doo-wop and rhythm-and-blues and a natural awareness of sophisticated folk.
