Published Jul 12, 2018Hamilton native Dylan "The Dill" Hudecki has played in the Canadian indie-rock scene for two decades in bands like Junior Blue and By Divine Right, but he's only just getting around to releasing his debut album. Before Greetings from the Dill arrives, though, Exclaim! is giving you a first look at the video for album cut "Divorce in Open D."
The 12 songs on Greetings from the Dill are selections from a previous 52-song project (released as playing cards no less), and hear Hudecki collaborating with everyone from Brendan Canning, Kevin Drew and Jose Contreras to Sarah Harmer, Max Kerman and Julie Fader.
Hudecki's daughter even makes an unintentional cameo on "Divorce in Open D," wandering up to his recording setup and informing him that there are "chocolate chips" awaiting him for dessert.
"The song is about trying to keep a marriage afloat and to be a good partner, and when you find out you're not pulling your weight, then what?" he tells Exclaim! "The video is a mashup of a famous movie by a famous director that we will not name here, that my friend Peter Michael Wilson adores. He thought the song and the moods of love, lust, disappointment and deceit fit really nice with the song. See for yourself."
Do just that in the player below.
Greetings from the Dill is officially out on August 17 via Dead Radio, Love Records.
