Hollow Sunshine - Lose Your World Cassette Tape


Lose Your World is the sprawling, psychedelic new album by California/New York duo Hollow Sunshine, to be released June 9th on digital and cassette. Featuring a dramatic about-face by the band into noisy, fuzzy psychedelic rock, it marks yet another shift in the wildly unpredictable collaboration between instrumentalist Reuben Sawyer and vocalist Morgan Enos.

While Enos and Sawyer have idiosyncratically tried on different musical styles in the past, the MO of Lose Your World is to trade beauty for noise. The four songs on Lose Your World are more disorienting, overwhelming and inhospitably heavy than any of the band’s past work. While most guitar groups would try and paint a fuller emotional picture – hey, let’s bring the energy up, then calm down! – Lose Your World is different. It is not calm. It does not let up. Three chords will do.

It’s psychedelic music in the harshest sense, but there’s a method to this racket: Enos’ vocal is as calm as ever, ensuring Sawyer’s medicine goes down. That speaks to the power of this duo: on Lose Your World, Hollow Sunshine offer the listener a portrait of a mental state – being on the planet uncomfortably, wasps stinging the brain, but oddly purified.
