"Nocturne” is the third release from The Hunted Hare, the solo guitar project of Dennis Kane (Red Spells Red, Domingues & Kane). Less pastoral and summery than the 2018 release, “Lost Wilderness”, the songs on “Nocturne” are inspired by, and evocative of, the night. Taking inspiration from Robin Guthrie of the Cocteau Twins, 60’s & 70’s Italian movie soundtracks and Baroque forms, the sounds are deep and personal.
Sometimes one instrument stands out in a band and here I admire the very creative guitar-work, dissonant, edgy and daring. The whole band creates an energy, which seems to jump out off your speakers. If you love the dissonance of Sonic Youth and the aggressive drive of the Dead Kennedys you should give this a try. Dirk Radloff
what an amazing tapestry of sonic storytelling in this incredible album. My favorite track is a story in and of itself and the use of field recordings all throughout this album makes you feel like you're right in the middle of the narratives presented here. very well done and highly recommended. 10/10.
