Jack Hayter - The Sisters of St. Anthony: The B-Sides

Jack Hayter

The Sisters of St. Anthony: The B-Sides

Audio Antihero

Released: 27th May 2016 | 12 track alt country album

An eclectic collection of beguiling B-Sides from (longtime John Peel favourites) Hefner guitarist Jack Hayter, taken from his Sisters of St. Anthony series (featured in the iTunes UK Singer/Songwriter Best of the Year).

While the Folkier sound that Hayter is best known for is present here on I Stole the Cutty Sark and Ramshackle Blood & Bones, O Dreamland! stands out for its mix of pierside field recording and sparse looping instrumentals, plus, there's broken attempts at Electro-Pop courtesy of BBC Eyes and Yanky Dancy while the acclaimed Dollboy offers a desolate and dystopian last broadcast-esque remix of Charlotte Badger - the collection ends with The Lab Technician and The Sexton, a cruel and menacing spoken word piecewith a crushing slug on a razor's edge instrumalism.

The freedom that Hayter enjoys on these B-Sides is a million miles away not only from his work with Hefner but from what people have come to expect Hayter's solo work too.

"Jack Hayter's voice has ghosts..."
Pitchfork
"The reaction it derives; the confused nose-curl, the perplexity it inspires is needed and above all fun – even in a scene where we’re all so, so, sooooo serious"
The Line of Best Fit
"This is all about Hayter and his incredible haggard voice"
For Folk's Sake
"Beautifully eccentric folk music - 8/10."
