| HUGO RACE & THE TRUE SPIRIT - THE SPIRIT - OUT NOW

posted at 05/30/2015

Today Hugo Race and his long time collaborators The True Spirit released their first album in seven years. Produced by Hugo over a period of three years in his hometown of Melbourne "The Spirit" is fuelled by high-energy rhythmic drive and Race’s darkly humorous lyrics with the band wielding space and sonic suggestion as instruments in their own rights. It's a compelling statement by a legendary band at the height of their powers!

“We built a studio in a house out on the city’s edge to slowly develop the songs at our own speed with no pressure. We’d never had the luxury before of playing new songs live before recording them. When we felt the time was right, we taped a lot of the final album with Idge at his Soundpark studio, capturing our sound with ambient mics and vintage processors. But the vibe of that house and the all-night recording sessions with the background buzz of cicadas and the homemade instruments in the tool shed, its all still there. We wanted to create a definitive album for The True Spirit and took our sweet time about it. This record is it.”

“I see the True Spirit as connected to my original reasons for making music in the post-punk time, a kind of collision of influences that include the cosmic side of psychedelia, the analogue razor blade attack of primal blues (ie – the 30s and 40s and early 50s), as well as soft sexy soul music and electronica. We’ve always felt comfortable outside the ‘box’ of easy categorization and we’ve never hesitated to pull in streams and influences from the political or the spiritual, developing our personal obsessions and refining them down into something for the mind and body and soul.” - Hugo Race
