Hobotalk – Don’t skip this post!

Hobotalk is one of many bands that have been dropped by huge multinational labels in Hobotalk’s case it was asked to leave a 5 album deal on Virgin after their critically acclaimed debut didn’t sell. Fortunately for the band they have been signed to Germany’s premier label – Glitterhouse Records.

When I say “the band” I really mean the main force behind the band-Mark Pillay from Scotland. His vocal delivery and song structure have been compared to Neil Young, Tim Hardin and most often to Nick Drake. His new record (Glitterhouse, June 05) is called Notes On Sunset (Glitterhouse, June 05) and was recorded in an old Scottish church with minimal interference, overdubs or compression. Here’s a beatiful song from Notes.

Plus some new acoustic songs exclusively available on his website.

If you’re in love (like me) – you can buy the record through Glitterhouse and also get one more new song by signing up for Hobotalk’s newsletter on his site.

    Thanks for turning me on to Hobotalk. This is really my cup of tea, so to speak. My favorite Hobotalk song is “On the Edge of Nowhere.”
