Following the release of their acclaimed album ‘The Spirit’, Hugo Race & The True Spirit return with a new 5-track EP, ‘False Idols’. False Idols filters rhythm ‘n blues and rock and psychedelia through the bands distinctive musical language. Where The Spirit is spacious and transcendent, False Idols is gritty and detailed as film noir.
Recorded in Melbourne in the same studio as The Spirit, Poor Boy is from Hugo’s work with the Jeffrey Lee Pierce Sessions; Hematite is a co-write with Berlin producer Don Rogall, Hugo’s collaborator on The Spirit’s Sleepwalker and Man Check Your Woman; the dark delta of Magnetic Girl highlights the presence of Patrick Brown from The Hellhounds on guitar; Lip Service and the title track pack some of the most intense sounds the band has yet released. False Idols is a wild ride.
These five songs were held back from The Spirit because they seem to tell a strange and particular story of their own from the dark side of the spirit, judging by Michelangelo Russo’s cover painting of man become beast.
