I've been meaning to do a post on Hundred Hands for a while now and their time has finally come. Hundred Hands is Aaron Pillar and Christopher Crisci from The Appleseed Cast. It's been a whole four years since their first record, but they finally a brand new full length was just released on Graveface Records out of Chicago.
The new album is called Her Accent Was Excellent and is filled with touching lyrics, beautiful melodies and more than a few "supercool" instrumental tracks. There's clearly an influence of their previous work in The Appleseed Cast on display here but, is that really a bad thing?
"Waiting In Denver, 4:05am" is my personal favorite from the new album. It's mostly acoustic, but in the way of Pedro the Lion, it manages to pull intense beautiful melody out of minal instrumentation. I can also detect some electric guitar tinkering in the background most of the song, which adds to the deep atmosphere of the song.
