Hyena is initially from Maine, but they now have their home base in Boston. Outside, The Great Drought, their debut full length LP, is a marvel of modern (yet oh-so-classic) arranging. The singer, Colby Nathan, vibes heavy with shattered acid folkie warble, but his tunes veer from charred orchestral dissonance to Pet Sounds glory. The new tape, called Gehuegen, is released on Colby’s Laughable Recordings. It’s as least as good as the LP, if a little sparser. Keep on the look out for these guys the next time they tour, but be sure to hear some of the recorded music to get the full picture, as performances can often be chaotic and quite confusing.
