Hill & the Sky Heroes '11:11' (album stream)
Published Jun 04, 2012Hill & the Sky Heroes recently announced their numerically oriented debut album, 11:11, which is slated to come out June 12. Before Toronto songwriter/artist Hill Kourkoutis and her collaborators release the 11-song album, you can stream the whole thing right here at Exclaim.ca.
The album features appearances from a few familiar names, including Saidah Baba Talibah, Martha & the Muffins, Serena Ryder, Damhnait Doyle, and Drake/the Weeknd contributor Adrian Eccleston.
A press release peculiarly describes the album's sound as "alien surf rock." So what exactly does this mean? Well, the record is made up of pop rock tracks that are infused with "classic sci-fi sounds," "the wondrous psychedelia of old Hollywood films," and sun-soaked California surf music.
The album follows the prior 11EP, which came out on November 11 of last year (which was 11/11/11, if you're keeping track). Take a listen to 11:11 and catch Hill & the Sky Heroes at the Drake Underground in Toronto on June 11.
