My favorite noise: A daring new Quiet Hounds album (that is almost here)

“What are you listening to, Krissie?” 

That’s a question I get a lot… And my answers are typically all over the place. 

Everything Else is Noise CoverBut, if you’ve seen me in the last couple of weeks, there’s only one answer: The new Quiet Hounds record, Everything Else is Noise.

No, it’s not out yet. So you’ll have to take my word for it for now.

Let me put it simply:

This is the best music that QH have made in their eight years as a band. 

(Side note: how has it been 8 years since these marvelous gentlemen came into my life?) 

The Hounds have never been afraid of experimenting, and for even their biggest fans, I think that this new record will be a surprise. Yes, there are threads that run through it that make it essential Quiet Hounds – poetic lyrics, historical themes, and creative interludes among them – but this album also finds the QH quartet taking new sound directions. 

Everything Else is Noise is a cinematic soundscape that will have you hanging off the edge of your seat wondering what twist is about to come next. From the sweeping pedal-heavy piano opening to 80s-inspired synth adventures to dreamy California pop, the whole thing is a journey that I just don’t want to end. 

Two words: RIVER DELTA. You’ll find out what that means soon enough. 

Pretty sure it’s going to be the record of the summer for me. And fall. And winter. And next spring. And next summer. You get the point. 

So here’s the skinny…

You’re going to have to wait until fall to hear the record. Official release news will follow soon, but I can totally spill the beans on a big secret. 
You can be part of this new record, get some sneak peaks and early access. How so? By taking part in the Kickstarter campaign.

Be sure to watch the video…for the first time ever outside of an event, the QH fellas have faces and names! 

That’s right, those secretive Hounds are opening up the vault. Now’s your chance to get in on the action and help Everything Else is Noise come to life and in the process, get some really unique and collectible rewards. I mean, who doesn’t want an authentic Hounds mask???

More blog posts to come from me on the album as I can tell you more, but for now, get to clicking on that Kickstarter. These one-of-a-kind rewards are not going to last long.
