Hercules and Love Affair Share Video For My Curse and Cure

Thursday, 08 February 2018 Written by Huw Baines

Hercules and Love Affair have released a video for My Curse and Cure.

The track is cut from their recent LP 'Omnion', which arrived in September of last year through Big Beat Records, while the video is the work of the band’s Andy Butler and collaborator Joie Iacono under the name Hoarder. Butler said:

“The video is directed, styled, edited and manipulated by myself and Joie Iacono as part of our new audio/visual (and otherwise) creative endeavour, called Hoarder. My Curse and Cure is a song about the inevitability of pain in life. It was not an easy song to write, Gustaph and I wrestled with it.

"My personal modus operandi can easily turn to simply ‘avoid pain’ which is on some level very human and natural, but also simply prohibits personal growth. This song is an examination of the notion that pain can be a positive catalyst as well as a scourge in our existence."

Thu 01 Feb 2018

Which is why ‘Perfection Kills’, the guitar slinger’s aptly-titled new album, deliberately aims a blues-rock blunderbuss at any notion of flawlessness. It’s delivered with an unvarnished live sound that’ll make you feel like you’re in the front row having the fortitude of your eardrums tested.
Rock 'n' Soul Preacher Man: Arise For Anderson East
Wed 31 Jan 2018
Straight out of Alabama (via Nashville) and armed with a voice that sounds like Ray Lamontagne if he was possessed by the spirit of Otis Redding, Anderson East is on the cusp of the big time thanks to a heart-wrenching mix of smoking soul, super-charged R&B and gospel on his new record, ‘Encore’.
Bat Fangs - Bat Fangs (Album Review)
Wed 07 Feb 2018
Listening to Bat Fangs’ self-titled bow could feel like taking inventory. After all, its shelves are overflowing with rock staples: chunky riffs, driving drums and snotty hooks. But the duo - guitarist Betsy Wright, lately of Ex Hex, and Flesh Wounds drummer Laura King - consistently make them feel vital, alive and, perhaps most importantly, fun.

Dan Patlansky - Perfection Kills (Album Review)
Fri 16 Feb 2018
Photo: Tobias Coetsee If South African singer, songwriter and guitarist Dan Patlansky is proficient at DIY he’d best have his tools handy come December. Following hot on the heels of breakout release ‘Dear Silence Thieves’ and its follow-up ‘Introvertigo’, two fantastic modern blues-rock albums that landed multiple prizes, ‘Perfection Kills’ is another superb offering that’s liable to add more gongs to his growing collection. In other words, Patlansky’s going to need a bigger mantelpiece.
