Product Notes

A perfect summer record, Colors Of The Sun was the CD-only debut album by Hatchback (Californian native Sam Grawe). A blissed-out 80-minute opus, it's assured kaleidoscopic sound can only be described as 'Cosmic-Krautrock-Disco.' Just in time for deep summer, Be With Records present the first ever vinyl issue as a double gatefold package. Originally surfacing in 2008, it has aged remarkably well. Indeed, now the world has caught up with all things 'balearic', this album should soundtrack balmy terrace gatherings, Adriatic boat parties and domestic BBQs this summer. Stretching out fully across four sides, the listener is enveloped in horizontal disco, Can-esque freeway trips and synth-led downtempo dreaminess. Allow "Nesso", the quietly strident opener, to glide over you before becoming entranced by the insistent motorik rhythms of "Everything Is Neu". The Lindstrom-endorsed "White Diamond" still startles whilst the percolating Rhodes-workout of "The Lotus and The Robot" gently soothes. Meanwhile, funk head-nodder "Closer to Forever" could've emerged from the same studio sessions as Steely Dan's Aja; yes, it's that good. Throughout, Hatchback crafts a sound quite unlike any other, as slo-moalmost-hip-hop beats underscore otherwise ambient pieces. A record truly deserving of the deluxe Be With treatment, the vinyl was specially cut at Abbey Road whilst the original artwork has been pleasingly expanded. Now, an eye-catching gold-foil layer is set against the original red tones, wrapped up in a sumptuous gatefold jacket. Limited to a run of just 500 copies for the world, this release will surely be one to treasure.
