Limited Orange Vinyl LP In Die-Cut Sleeve
Fat Possum US
Cat: FPC 1762.
Recorded in a kind of homely hibernation - namely the shed in the yard of Nathan Williams' family home in San Diego - despite the title, Hideaway isn't backwards at coming forwards. It's an upfront and muscular, riff-y but not too heavy rock 'n' roll record that benefits from some real creative titans at the helm, specifically the aforementioned Wavves lynchpin and Dave Sitek of TV On The Radio fame. Suffice to say, then, it's one of the most polished sounding shed rock albums you will hear all year.
While for the most part it's an uptempo, top down convertible, wayward road trip, chaotic montage type sound, the instrumentation betrays some pretty (and typically, for Williams) thoughtful songwriting. It's an ode to the restless feeling we all experience at times, the possibilities of the other and the need to embrace the potential in the world. Messages that resonate with us all in 2021.
