- Making Baby Keys In The Darkness
- Houses (Elyse Weinberg)
“Making Baby Keys in the Darkness” is a hazy, dog-days-of-summer song. Rhodes, lap steel & clarinet stretch and snake around the rhythm section & three-part harmonies. The song features Halli Anderson on vocals & violin, Olaf Ydstie on drums, & Adam Selzer on electric guitar.
“Houses” was written Elyse Weinberg & originally released in 1968. The Hackles version trades electric guitar for trumpet, violin & clarinet while honoring the crooked timing & immediacy of the original. “Houses” features Halli Anderson on vocals & violin, Hazel Ydstie on vocals, Olaf Ydstie on drums, Bart Budwig on trumpet & group vocals, along with Jen Borst.
Both tracks were recorded by The Hackles at The Rope Room in Astoria, Oregon, mixed by Adam Selzer, & mastered by Jon Neufeld.
