New AWMA Vinyl Release!

AWMAHidden Shoal is proud to announce the release of ‘Sterling Hayden and the Great Nobility’, the ten minute single by expansive guitar outfit AWMA (A Woman My Age), a trio made up of ex-members of the San Francisco-based slowcore outfit Half Film. The track is available as a limited edition 12” vinyl and digital download via Bandcamp.

Right from the opening notes of delayed guitar and the warm thrum of bass, ‘Sterling Hayden and the Great Nobility’ establishes itself as a songscape that’s in it for the long haul. The spacious six- and four-string interplay creates a gorgeous atmosphere, through which the drums steadily surge, like car headlights through fog. It’s not until five minutes in that Conor Devlin’s voice colours the song with impressionistic invocations, before the back half builds in intensity with fuzz bass and then reaches a cymbal-washed climax. The song was recorded in one take by Monte Vallier at Ruminator Audio in San Francisco. No one in the band remembers anything about the origin of the title…

As with all Hidden Shoal releases, AWMA’s music is available for licensing (film, tv, games, compilations). Contact Hidden Shoal for more info.
