Sound Capture 

There is a strange place between writing and recording songs. Before you record a song, it's a living document: things change, iterations rise and fall. You can't even really make mistakes when playing because we haven't said "This is the right and only way to play this song." 

Once a song is recorded, it becomes known. It can be compared. Critiqued. It can be "wrong."

It is a funny tension we feel between writing and recording. On one had we feel pressure to have something to "show" for all of our work. On the other hand, there is something limiting about setting a song down and saying "this is how it goes." Hazel Blackburn is putting some demo recordings together right now and while we love making new things for your ears, it can be tough to set those things down and name them complete.

It is bittersweet. Almost a goodbye.

Sound Gestation - Brewmastery for Audiophiles 

Having spent the last year in a dank room cooking up a new band, we put a lot into creating our new sound. 

By which I mean, we didn't talk at all about what we were trying to sound like.

There is a peculiar kind of alchemy involved in song writing and there are as many approaches to brewing up tunes as there are musicians. So many influences flavor the process: your favorite song when you were 13, your favorite song right now, that crazy thing that happened to your friend that one time, a half remembered jingle, the perfume of memory… your ego, your city, your dreams, your exes… all the slurry in your head and detritus in your heart foam together on your finger and pen tips when you are writing.

Hazel Blackburn writes all of our songs together so the process is a triple tidal confluence: like three carnivals set up in one muddy field with all the competing calliopes, wonky gamesmanship, spilled beer and color that go along with it. We don’t plan a sound or a song, we throw our unconsciousness together and see what staggers out. Things struggle to be born, after all, whether egg-bound, or womb-swaddled and you can’t direct primordial soup, you can only be ready with a net for whatever sloshes out of the pond.

We are Hazel Blackburn. We make sounds.


Hazel Blackburn is hatched! 

Like so many other bands, Hazel Blackburn has risen from the ashes of other projects and is currently flopping around in a dark thicket, wet and gasping like a newborn snake. It was a twisted path that led us to become a three-piece: full of betrayal, witchcraft and nachos. Sometimes having all familiar roads closed to you opens your eyes to a near invisible gap in the underbrush which happens to be the only way to get where you want. Sometimes you just want nachos. 

We are somewhere in the dark now... brier-scratched with fingers bleeding... and the the glowing embers we kindle, the dark swirls of magic we craft, will soon break from our fragile shells. Soon.

Also, nachos.
