Hammydown “Automatic Sweetheart” – Listen

Driven to ditching her acoustic guitar by an endless series of broken strings, Abbie Morin switched from her folk-rock persona to the Fender Jazzmaster sound of new project Hammydown.  It’s the quirky garage-pop that could get filed alongside the B-52s or They Might Be Giants .  The new EP – Pizzaface – captures the sound of the millennial slacker – those who button up and drag their way through the working week whilst trying to pursue creative passions, but still just feel like losers who are stuck in a series of service industry jobs and a rotating roster of bosses who helpfully tell you “it doesn’t cost anything extra to give service with a smile”.  Happy Monday!

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
