Thrush Hermit Offshoot Camouflage Nights Ropes in Feist, Buck 65, Sloan's Chris Murphy for Long-Delayed Debut LP
Published Mar 02, 2012Camouflage Night's self-titled album has been a long time coming. The debut LP from Thrush Hermit's Robert Benvie and Ian McGettigan dates back in 2004, and despite occasional reports over the years that the release was imminent, the collection has yet to see the light of day. Well, that may soon change, since Camouflage Night now finally have a record deal and a release date for their long-in-the-works record.
The album is now slated to come out on April 24 through Sonic Unyon, and it features quite the impressive array of guest appearances, including Feist, Buck 65 and Sloan's Chris Murphy. You can hear the Buck 65-featuring "Antarctica" (which the band posted on Tumblr) embedded at the bottom of this page, so scroll past the tracklist to take a listen.
A press release describes the 11-song collection as a "sprawling, eclectic quasi-rock/semi-electro thing" that's based around "a loose concept formed around the idea of the party and the varied forces within: socialization, romance, humiliation, melancholy."
Recently, Benvie tweeted, "The Camouflage Nights debut LP, held up for years due to label crap, went to manufacturers this week. Boy oh boy."
In other words, yes: this time it's actually happening.
