HuDost's 2013 release '4th Way Folk' is a stripped down organic acoustic affair.

While touring constantly over the past few years, continuing to write new songs for the next ‘proper’ HuDost album (as well as working on a ‘Sufi Kirtan’ album & experimental project with The Church’s Steve Kilbey), we struck up a relationship with BLUE MICROPHONES and acquired a few of their mics as well as their awesome sounding Robbie PreAmp and other studio upgrades. This led to the idea of us wanting to do an acoustic album of our revisions and renditions of both ‘vintage’ and modern day folk songs. With the beautiful BLUE mics, we wanted to capture the raw purity & essence of our vocal harmonies and instruments without all the effects, electronics, feedback, amplifiers, etc. (Don’t worry...we’ll be back there soon!).

Five of the tracks are actually ‘4th Way Folk Songs’; traditional folk pieces transformed & gleaned from the ideas of people like Gurdjieff & E.J. Gold. At one point in the project, we sent two of the tracks out to Oz Fritz & IDHHB so he could record ‘gang vocals’ with E.J. and the crew. He sent back varying tracks of everyone singing and rapping and improvising along with ‘Holy Hobo’ & ‘4th Way Liner’. E.J.’s ad-libs are amazingly candid, jolting & fun and add beautifully to the essence of these versions.

This recording project is truly homespun. Jemal took it as an assignment to bring forth clarity in his engineering skills as well as taking a shot at mixing the project himself.

We hope you enjoy the essence of these songs. There’s a lot more music on it’s way.....
