The Declining Winter

The mighty Hood are on sabbatical throughout 2007, but the band’s various members are remaining busy with their own projects. First there was Chris Adam’s Bracken, whose We Know About the Need was released earlier this year on Anticon. Now, the other half of Hood’s core, Chris’ brother Richard, is working on his project, The Declining Winter.

You can listen to two songs at the above link, though both seem like more works in progress than anything else. Still, the same gloomy, pastoral melancholy that permeates Hood’s music is quite prevalent in The Declining Winter. Must be something in that Leeds water…

A 7″ titled The Future Sound of Hip Hop Parts 1 and 2 is due out in September, with an album titled Goodbye, Minnesota due out on Rusted Rail later on in the year.
