This is your chance to hear some brand new material from the upcoming Hanalei album.
The brainchild of Brian Moss (The Ghost, Great Apes, Olehole, Wunder Years), the moniker has been a vehicle used to explore indie and folk-tinged soundscapes through a punk lens. The project has the flexibility to shift from full-blown band to a stripped-down solo endeavor, and each release tends to showcase a different manifestation. As of late, Brian’s been committed to self-recording with a fairly minimalistic setup. It’s been over 10 years since the release of One Big Night – the last proper Hanalei full length. Since then, Moss has trickled out various singles including split releases with Fifteen, Sundowner (Chris McCaughan of The Lawrence Arms), and Aspiga. “Screen Echoes” is the lead single from Black Snow which is due out on March 12th via A-F Records. BrooklynVegan is streaming the track now and described it as a cool dose of breezy indie rock that Weakerthans fans will probably dig.
